Referee sends England player to the sin bin

The Sin-Bin is a place you should avoid at all costs.
In the game of Rugby Football, also known as Rugby Union, the sin-bin is the bench where all players who have been bad sit out of the game for 10 minutes.
If the referee believes a player has committed a serious foul or shown indiscipline, then he will show them a yellow card, just like in football (soccer).
However, unlike football, that player must then immediately leave the pitch.
They then have to sit in the sin-bin for 10 minutes while the game continues without them.
This is music to the opposition’s ears because they have one more player on their side.
