When reading the penalties the following definitions should be applied:
- A one (1) Match penalty equates to a two (2) week suspension, i.e. 1 x 2 Day game or 2 x 1 Day game.
- The term ‘Not Applicable’ means that the occurrence of the offence does not require grading or it is not relevant in that instance.
- The term ‘Not Available’ relates to the ‘Early Guilty Plea’; where noted an early plea is not permitted and a ‘Standard Penalty’ will automatically apply.
- Level 5 offences will be automatically referred to the Tribunal. As a guide, penalties from level offences 4 must be applied (item 4.1) to Level 5 offences at a minimum.
