    Grasped with both arms, and not above the line of the shoulders

    I agree with Taff, fair tackle, play on!

    So in actual fact the girl is the tackler and she certainly seems to go above the shoulders and round the neck. However I don't think you could call that "with force" so I would be inclined to say just a PK to the dog.

    I appreciate that it may be a high tackle by the girl but I think the first offence is carrying the ball in the mouth by the dog. Is this the equivalent of running with the ball up your shirt? Against the spirit of the game?

    Great technique shown and the collision is definitely lost by the girl.

    Play on IMHO

    well, as a ball carrier I thought's Fido's technique was pretty woeful to be honest. No attempt to attack a space, very high in contact, ball presented to opposition, no chance of an offload or pass out of the tackle.. The superior weight and strength means he gets away with it - that's the best that can bre said.

    However, the girl's defensive technique is even worse. Flat footed, sitting back waiting. No attempt to lead with a leg and shoulder, no attempt to get under the attacker - its only the attacker's superior height that means she is under the chest TBH. At best a soak up tackle. Very poor.
