Cautions

Please do not use the caution reporting functionality on MatchRef.

Referees can report cautions directly via the MWFA match card and do not need to submit an accompanying electronic caution report.

If using a triplicate MWFA match card, referees should note the name, identity number and offence code of cautioned players and note the total number of cautioned players from each team.

If using a double-sided MWFA match card, referees should indicate the offence code of cautioned players and note the total number of cautioned players from each team.
