    Default Secondary signal: shoulder charge?

    So far this season I've seen shoulder charges in the ruck/tackle signalled with:
    1) "No bind"
    2) Striking - fist to fist
    3) Patting the shoulder while leaning slightly forward

    Is there a standard signal? What do you use/expect to see?

    As far as I'm aware...no standard signal.

    I use 3)

    I have seen others use "tackling player without ball" (reverse of tackler not releasing)

    I had a fairly lame attempt at 3) during my TV debut you can just catch it about 1:07:00 in.

    Did I mention I was on "TV"?

    I have been using the "high tackle" signal for generic foul play that does not have its own signal.

    I generally use 3) while saying something like - "no arms, shoulder only",

    then follow with "tackling player without ball" (reverse of tackler not releasing) while saying something like "arms in tackles from now on"
