    The Times of London reporting that:

    “Having reviewed all available camera angles, the citing commissioner [South African Freek Burger] considered Ofa Tu’ungafasi to have executed a dangerous tackle ‘just short of’ red card level,” World Rugby said. Burger determined the mitigating factors included Grosso’s body position lowering as he went into contact with Cane, who made the initial tackle immediately before Tu’ungafasi."

    And that's with all the technology at hand. The on-field judge is likely to be far more variable in his/her interpretation.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    I think the previously mentioned guidline is looking to discourage leading with a protected (arm down) shoulder and grasping as an afterthough.

    A previous couple of quotes from you Ian seem to suggest that tackling high is the risk that the tackler takes? I do accept that these were in relation to a ball carrier ducking, but your inference here is if you as a tackler are high, then it's your risk. Is that still your stance?
