So over at the Fern on the final a poster was talking about how the red card influenced the game by being 14 men down. So he suggested why not introduce a third card, orange or amber or what ever colour.

But with this card, let's take the Kwagga red card as an example, Kwagga would've gotten the orange card, which mean the team plays with 14 men for 10 or 15 min, but then he can be then replaced after that period.

So then Cyle would come up then and play further and the Lions are back to full 15.

So the red card would be then used for punching, biting or eye couching the nasty stuff, then orange for types incident's like Kwagga and the normal red.

Think this is a good idea.

To add the third card can be used on a player that get's a second yellow in a match as well.

What about intentional head high shots that cross the red card threshold?

Cool idea. Red could be reserved for unsportsmanlike misconduct and blatant breaking of rules.

Orange for serious fouls which could have been unintended, as well as repeated minor fouls.

Yellow as normal.

If intentional it will be foul play, wouldn't it? So if any intentional foul play is committed then a red card.

The third card would be for infringements like Kwaggas incident as an example and maybe second yellow.

The point is to penalise the player but not the team.

It's an interesting idea, but it adds another layer of interpretation that could cause delays/varying interpretation.

Agreed, it only addresses the seriousness of a committed foul.

There seriously needs to relook at laws, and unfortunately ref's will interpret the laws differently.
