Should the NRL introduce the red card system?

Yellow card - 10 min bin
Red card - Send off

Thoughts?

On Report = Yellow Card.
Second On Report = Red Card/Send Off.

Offence warrants it, straight red card/send off.

Why not?

We should do away with the sin bin tbh. They’re only for professional fouls. Professional fouls should be a straight red. Ryan James clearly offside bashing the ball away to stop a try is on par with a defender using their hands to stop a goal in soccer. Straight red.

Throwing a punch = straight red.
Professional foul = straight red.
Intentional kneeing, kicking, elbows. = straight red.
Swearing at the referee = straight red.

Yellow = Unintentional high shots. Indescriminate kicking. Shoulder charges. Dissent.

Would certainly clean the game up fast.

Although i agree with you, what if a player is out on report but didn’t deserve to be?

Then he’ll get off at the judiciary and he just needs to be careful not to commit a second offence during the match? Not that big a deal.

current system is fine, unique even. i like it.

The 5min sin bin should come back though

I think what some are saying is that if the ref’s pull out the red or yellow cards it’ll look more dramatic on TV ?
Much like in soccer .

I agree with having a 5 minute sin bin also !

Got me stuffed as to why they ever stopped using the five minute rest. Surely the Refs would be much more inclined to use it (over the ten option), if it was available to them.
