International Player Behaviour
maynas 22 February, 2020 21:50
Watching today especially the Wales players Iím not surprised refs are getting fed up with the verbals and gestures of international players who think they are reffing the game. Itís about time some of these prima donnas (no names (Dan Biggar)) went to the sin bin when they try to show off and moan.

I am not known for my knowledge of the laws of rugby, but I was urging Matt Carly to show Dan Biggar a yellow card today. I feel a few cards would soon sort this out.

Don't even think it needs a couple a cards, just instant extra10 metre pens or reversals that's all

what weekend players see at international level translates into how they treat match officials at their own level. International referees owe it to their lower-tier brethren to shut down the players like Biggar at the first verbal. Ten yards for the first time, penalty instead of lesser sanction second time, yellow card third time, and I guess any one who went for a fourth time would be most unpopular with his team mates.


Points win matches: tries win hearts and minds.
