The most ill-disciplined and disciplined Super League sides revealed with Castleford Tigers and Wigan Warriors complete opposites

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.

In terms of yellow and red cards, Wigan Warriors are at the bottom of the list with just one of each, with Hull KR slightly above them with three yellows.

Wakefield Trinity and Toulouse Olympique have too maintained a good level of discipline with just three yellow cards and no reds, but at the other end of the table it’s a completely different story.

Surprisingly, it’s champions St Helens who sit third in the cards chart, with a remarkable eight yellows, but Castleford Tigers occupy top spot with nine yellow cards and one red, with Leeds Rhinos not far behind on eight yellows and one red.

Catalans Dragons also have the most red cards in the whole competition, having been shown three in 2022 so far with Hull FC just behind them on two, whilst the French side’s six yellows is not exactly what head coach Steve McNamara will want from his side.

Warrington Wolves boast seven yellows, with Huddersfield Giants on six yellows and one red whilst Salford Red Devils have no red cards but eight yellows.

Wigan, then, should be hailed for their superb discipline in 2022 as new head coach Matt Peet turns things around from the disappointing 2021 Super League season.
