In addition to any penalty awarded, a card may also be awarded to a player by the umpires. It may be awarded for the breach of any rule but will usually be awarded for dangerous play, unsportsmanlike conduct or persistent breach of the rules. The umpires must agree that a player should be awarded a card and, if not in agreement, consult with the referee whose decision shall be final, and obtain the acknowledgement of the player(s) awarded the card and their team captain(s).
Accumulation of Yellow Flags. If a player accumulates four yellow flags across games, the player will start the next four matches on a yellow flag or matches as decided by the relevant State Association where the incident occurred, if those matches are not due to be played. Any yellow flag awarded during those games shall result in:
Awarding of Flags.
