Brisbane Roar face further sanctions

Brisbane Roar are facing further sanctions after receiving five more yellow cards on the weekend. Frank Farina's men have been handed 22 yellow cards in the opening five rounds, nine more than the next club, and have already been given a fine for their ill-disciplined behaviour.

They have now copped the wrath of A-League chief Archie Fraser who believes the club needs to settle down on the pitch.

"We don't want to belt them, but it's disappointing that it's happened for the third time this season," Fraser said.

"That's way above the average.

"We'll certainly be discussing with them early in the week how we can rectify things.

"They've got a board meeting on Thursday and I'm sure their board will be talking about it."
