2012-03-10 16:37

Perth - Cameron Shepherd of the Western Force has been issued with an off-field yellow card for contravening Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous Tackling during a Super Rugby match on Friday.
 
The incident occurred in the 34rd minute of the match between the Western Force and Hurricanes played NIB Stadium.
 
An off-field yellow card may be issued by the SANZAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the red card threshold for citings.
 
In this case the incident was not acted on by the referee for the match and on further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.

    Is there a point to an off-field yellow card? He miss ten minutes next week? He doesn't even get cited? The guy knows he was naughty, and got away with it, but someone noticed, so don't do it again!!!
