Discipline is always a major issue for rugby league teams.
If you have good discipline, a game is often a breeze to work alongside referees and officials, whereas, to have bad discipline can be incredibly detrimental to the outcome of a fixture.
With the crackdown in Super League seemingly restored to a calm level from the beginning of the Super League season, it is a good idea to take stock of which sides are able to control their emotions to a greater degree than others.
A number of sides have a huge amount of yellow and red cards whilst others have shown to have had great discipline throughout the 2022 season.
Let’s start with the good.
Wigan Warriors, Hull KR and Toulouse Olympique have had just three cards each over the course of 19 rounds so far, with Wigan being given one red and two yellows and the Robins and Toulouse three yellows with no reds.
Wakefield Trinity have been given six yellow cards, with Huddersfield Giants not far behind on six yellows and one red.
Hull FC are next with two reds and five yellows as Warrington Wolves come in next with eight yellow cards and Salford Red Devils not far behind on nine.
Catalans Dragons have been awarded the most red cards in 2022 with three – and two of those have been given to former Sydney Roosters and Canterbury Bulldogs prop Dylan Napa – whilst they have also been on the receiving end of seven yellows.
St Helens, surprisingly, sit in third in the least disciplined side in Super League having accrued one red card and ten yellows.
But, at the top are Castleford Tigers and Leeds Rhinos with two red cards and 11 yellows each, making those two sides responsible for a staggering 26 cards between them so far!
