    Re: latching

    I agree. Only at that point the Ball Carrier (tackled player) will already have not been penalized for 14.7a not making the ball available immediately. And after a tackle all of the players must be...

    I have nothing against the idea that the change is good for player safety. However by making it an obligation, then it is open to abuse. In grassroots a suspected concussion means the player goes...

    It is easy to imagine a mid-air collision where the reckless party stays down, feigning injury (possible HIA? Possibly blood) to slow the opposition. Negating the opportunity for a quick tap penalty....

    Not sure it’s a good thing, if it allows the non-offending team to dictate the speed of the restart.

    Interesting the tackler’s responsibilities include :
    14.5 e
    Allow the tackled player to move away from the ball.
