Have a rank: most yellow cards

Who’ll notch up the most yellow cards in this year’s The Rugby Championship? Rank em in order!

Let us know if we’ve missed any obvious offenders and if you get the likes we’ll add them to the list.


Most yellow cards in The Rugby Championship?

  • D.

    Damn this is a lot harder with no Bakkies Botha!!!!!!

  • The Other Dave

    LOL Richie McCaw; you need to be penalised to get a yellow card!

    • jimmy

      Maybe now that Paddy has walked off into the sunset people are anticipating a more even approach from the refs.

      I highlight the “more” part as I fully expect the preferential treatment to continue to some extent.

  • Slim 293

    I expect S Faingaa to grab one or two if he gets on the field…….

  • tigerland12

    Roncero loves giving opposition the old knuckle sandwhich, so he’d be my pick

  • James

    Who will get yellow’s. Much harder than who should! Damn.

  • Skip

    19 (at time of reading) think saint richie will get most. Not one, but most. Assume saturday night on the bong explains this.

  • Is Stu Dickinson refereeing, no one loved giving out the Yellows like Stu did?

  • suckerforred

    Butch James??? Or are we assuming that he is just to much risk and the Bokke won’t play him.

  • jimmy

    I’m going to assume “dumb” players are going to take home the gold…card – so I’m ranking them in order.

    Ali Williams
    J DuPlessis
    Quade Cooper

  • Still Optimistic

    Ben Alexander to get carded – collapsing the scrum in own quarter – 10 minutes left in deciding Bledisloe cup game.

    This would follow his yellow card for dangerous seagulling during the deciding game of the Championship.

    Therefore two yellow cards during the tournament – could be equalled by another, but damn hard to beat.

  • robbo

    Well Schalk would be a good bet but he is out for the season
