New “Sin Bin” for W12/U12 and above

Players can now be sent to the Sin Bin for 5 minutes (U12-U14) or 10 minutes (U15+) for strong or repeated dissent and swearing.  If this happens a yellow card will also be issued.

So, no matter what the decision, always remember to speak politely to referees – if not you may find yourself temporarily leaving your team one player short.
