White card for Super rugby

White cards will also be flashed in a bid by SANZAR bosses to put a cap on foul play during the Super season.

The card will be used by referees to alert a citing commissioner to scan the footage if he suspects foul play but cannot identify a culprit or pinpoint the incident.

The judicial process has also been streamlined, with players cited to face charges initially offered leaner bans if they accept a guilty plea and suspension suggested by the duty judicial officer.

But, should the players refuse the offer or want to contest the charge, their cases will be heard electronically with their counsel, the judicial officer and the player all able to appear on a video conference hookup instead of having to appear in person.

SANZAR chief executive Greg Peters told nzherald.co.nz the aim was to improve the consistency of citing and judicial process.

Super 15 gets underway next weekend.
