    For me yellow card for red 10 for tackling player in the air

    Seriously, though that for me is dangerous play and I would like to think I would not allow the score.

    Covered here (although the law references are now out of date)

    Similarly, just saw this video on Roar - https://www.theroar.com.au/tv/tongan...elievable-try/ of a kids game- no date stamp on it, but wondering which came first...

    Hmm, from the first article, jumping in to the tackle would be contrary to good sportsmanship, interesting take on it, as that goes to the intent of the jumper (preventing the opponent from tackling?), that at least is equitable for defenders who basically can't touch.

    Wonder if I'll be brave enough to call that in anything beyond a kids game!

    Jumping into a tackle is regarded as dangerous normally because of the risk to the tackler who can easily receive a boot to the head.
    That wasn't really the case here

    wrt to the OP video I am amazed that the try was awarded.

    If that's not putting the defender into "danger" (boots at head height) then I'm not really sure what is!

    The WR research into injuries in the tackle found that tackelers were more likely to be injured than ball carriers, letting this sort of play happen just makes that more likely and not for me.
