The most ill-disciplined and disciplined Super League sides revealed with the likes of Wigan Warriors, Castleford Tigers and Leeds Rhinos assessed

Super League fans love a good statistic or two – well now they are going to get 12.

Discipline is a key feature of a successful rugby league team and everyone knows how important it can be with that facet often the difference between winning and losing.

With Super League in 2022, there has been an increasing number of red and yellow cards given out to players as referees and the Disciplinary Match Review Panel attempt to crack down on foul play.

Looking at the Super League statistics from this season and there are a few quite remarkable differences.

Castleford Tigers and Leeds Rhinos, for example, have both been given 18 yellow and red cards during 2022 so far, whilst Wigan Warriors have been given just five which is an incredible feat for Matt Peet’s side.

It is remarkable just how far Peet has brought his Wigan side after a poor 2021 Super League season under Adrian Lam.

Next in line behind Leeds and Castleford are the Catalans Dragons who have been given 12 yellows and three reds, with St Helens and Salford Red Devils next with 12 cards altogether.

The only difference is that Salford have been awarded 12 yellows whilst Saints have had one red and 11 yellows.

Hull FC are next in line with eight yellows and three reds with Warrington Wolves the next with ten and then Huddersfield Giants with nine cards – including one red.

Wakefield Trinity have enjoyed quite an impressive disciplinary record in 2022 with seven cards whilst Toulouse Olympique sit behind them with six.

Wigan Warriors and Hull KR bring up the rear with the best disciplinary record with five cards apiece, though Wigan have two reds and three yellows whilst the Robins have all been yellows.
