    Just as "Crocodile Rolls" seem to be tolerated. If crocodile rolls are tolerated, why not pulling a player forward? Technically, BOTH are collapsing the Ruck.

    Given that there will probably be players on the floor, I can't imagine a way where a potential jackler can be pulled forward without him falling over.

    Both pulling-down and rolling after the tackle get a warning from me, then they get penalised. Is this very unusual, then?

    Modern ruck technique is almost entirely about forcing opponents onto the floor . I don't see anyone penalising that , so I think you are unusual, yes
