    Default No tackle..?

    https://twitter.com/i/status/1126923614283030528

    Seems like it's not in itself dangerous, but where do you start?

    If Blue 14 grabs white 1, is it a maul if the BC is off feet? In fact, is he off feet, because no other part of him is supported on the ground? Can the BC dot the ball (or his hand) down and be counted as tackled? What are blue's options to contest safely?

    Or is it just a tackle, BC held and eventually brought to ground in touch?

    It’s not enough for maul, it’s not a completed tackle either, so I’d consider it a tackle in progress that’s gone into touch? With a word after about how the player is returned to the ground safely.

    PS: Impressive use of French by WB last night

    Call me soft, but that's pretty close to the wind on 9.18 for me, they had every opportunity (and no legitimate reason not to) to bring him down with far more control than that.

    A player must not lift an opponent off the ground and drop or drive that player so that their head and/or upper body make contact with the ground.

    Yup, see my comment #2 - at very least that was a potential flare point, in fact I think it did kick off a bit

    It looks like hes grasped in the neck area and it is unsportsmanlike - doesn't sit right with me. Instinct is penalty high tackle.

    For me, the BC has just been pushed / carried to touch.

    No offence (he wasn't tipped past the horizontal etc) so LO for me.

    There should be Law , I think saying no picking up, and if you end up picking someone up unintentionally, you have to put them down

    I'd like to see it from a different angle for sure.
