ARL Commission endorses changes to sin bin

NRL Media Release

Referees will be given discretion to sin bin players for serious instances of foul play – even if the victim is able to continue playing – under a change to the NRL Laws and Interpretations.

Chairman Peter Beattie said the ARL Commission has endorsed a recommendation from the Competition Committee to strengthen the sin bin rule to protect players from foul play.

"No one wants to see players taken out of the game through acts of foul play," Mr Beattie said.

"Sometimes those acts do not warrant a send off – but they do deserve 10 minutes in the sin bin.

"Until now, the rules did not allow referees to use the sin bin for foul play unless the victim of foul play was forced to leave the field and was unlikely to take any further part of the game.

"So we have seen players commit acts of foul play, put on report but miss no game time.

"We don't think that is an adequate deterrent so, from Round 15 onwards, referees will be able to use the sin bin for foul play whether the victim has to leave the field or not."

CEO Todd Greenberg said the sin bin could be used for high tackles, dangerous throws, shoulder charges and crusher tackles.

"The sin bin could also be used for cheap late shots on playmakers who play such a key role in our game," he said.

"I stress that the sin bin will only be used for serious incidents and there will be no impact on tough, fair and legal play."

The Commission also endorsed a proposal which will allow salary cap relief for Clubs in the event their players suffer long-term injuries during Representative fixtures.

New rules will allow that:

• if a player suffers a long-term injury while participating in a representative fixture, Clubs will be able to sign a replacement player as well as access a salary cap exemption for a portion of, or all of, the replacement player's value;

• The cap exemption will be on a dollar-for-dollar basis compared to the injured player, up to $350,000;

• The exemption allowable will be based on the number of rounds remaining in the regular season.

"Clubs place significant investments in their players so it stands to reason that we would attempt to compensate them as much as possible for instances where their players have suffered long-term injuries while they are on representative duties," NRL Chief Operating Officer Nick Weeks said.

"Ultimately, we want to support representative football, but provide adequate on-field compensation.

"There are some strong parameters around the relief but we certainly view this proposal as being fair to all parties."

The salary cap relief will now begin with this year's Holden State of Origin Series and other Representative fixtures.

Best put the rule book on an Excel file I think... so much easier to make changes on the run.

Way to many grey areas in the game that leave to much power to 'referee discretion'

Good change in theory, but we all know what happens when you leave decisions up to the referee's discretion.

What I get from it is... you don't want to be a player that does any of the above during round 15 as the refs won't be able to get their hands in the air quick enough!

When they make these changes they seem to go looking for examples early.

It's all a lot of BS if the Judiciary are going to smack someone with if feather.
If the NRL want to clean up these grubby tactics, like late hits, diving at the legs of kickers, give them 5 week suspensions that with stop it over night.

Very good point mate! At least we ain't the crash-test dummies this time! (maybe still dummies though)

Exactly, look what happened with the deliberately passing into a player in the ruck rule change, you knew the first player to throw a ball that hiy a player was going to get penalised and it happened in the Dogs V Dragons game and surprise surprise they got it WRONG.

It's going to be interesting what the different refs interpretations of a "cheap late shot" are, I can already see someone getting 10 for a minor late bump

I feel like we're the only sporting organisation in the world that changes the rules of the game mid season. We're going backwards at an alarming rate.

Good to see that respected rugby league brains like Peter Beattie are on the case.
