The bit I don't like, is players staying down injured so the VR will look at the tackle. we need to find a way of controlling that.
I may well be wrong with this, but is that not essentially what the green card was brought in for? If you need to stay down we'll look at it, but understand you're leaving the field. If you can get up and play, get up and play! Then let the ref make decisions on penalties, etc based on what he can see

Yes, but unfortunately the green card is under-used by refs.
