[quote Rob C][quote Sam Skennel]The conversation I had with the referee indicated that it had been suggested to him that the first yellow card (prop) was really quick in coming (1st collapse under the posts) and that the second was as slow coming as the first had been quick.

Third one seemed right, and the yellow cards felt about right to me, once the first had been issued.]

Surely a penalty try is rewarded when a try would almost certainly be scored had an offence not been committed. This could be at the first ruck, mall, scrum of the game and has nothing to do with repeated offences as in the case of yellow cards.[/quote]

you're right, of course. I was just surprised because of the nature of the offence and the speed at which he issued the card when other, more experienced, referees might have waited for a second or even third penalty offence.

That's not to say he was wrong at all, but I thought at the time that meant he'd set out a difficult stall to maintain.
