THIS is the thing that really irritates me about rugby disciplinary panels and always has done. What sane system starts with a *minimum* sanction and then works downwards from that with reductions until getting the final result?

It results in most players getting off easily and at times with laughable sanctions.

Surely the correct format would be you have a minimum for an offence then work UPWARDS for things like previous bad form and so on?

That is a good point. The whole thing is confusing.
