Why write a good report?
Ensure that the charge is graded appropriately by the Match Reviewers
Accurate reporting means the grading you recommend is more likely to be agreed with by the Match Reviewers

Reduce the likelihood of a player challenging their charge
If a player/club see a report that they do not think reflects what occurred they are more likely to challenge it

Reduce the likelihood of a Not Guilty verdict at the Judiciary
Inaccurate/incomplete reports are less likely to stand up under a challenge at the Judiciary

– Accurate descriptions of events
– Players Clearly Identified
– No irrelevant information
