    Yes but I can see mich point , they don't have to leave the tackle and come back in through the gate

    I was marked down in an assessment this year for not picking up on the tackler not coming through the gate, although he was playing the ball from his side.

    Ouch. Really confused. But great to see the fact that your exam follows the 2017 Amendment. Hmmm...

    The #7 was captain and clearly the best player in the team. He'd tackle, then press-up and twist round so he was standing over the BC, facing their DBL, reaching forward to grab the ball that had been placed - all within the tackle area. I felt he was the tackler and approaching from behind the ball, but the assessor was looking for a clear approach through the gate and step over.

    Given it happened 8 or 9 times, it was marked down as a significant point of improvement. Fortunately the only one, the assessment was otherwise good

    Interesting, so he was clearly expecting the referee to be ok with that technique .. so I assume they normally are

    I would be looking to ensure that when he stood up he was not standing over the ball carrier in effect preventing him from getting up, that there was a clear an obvious separation from the player before trying to play the ball and that when he reached over to grab the ball that he remained on his feet, but if he did that I am not going to expect him to back up and come in through the gate, but it is a bit of judgement whether he was OK to play the ball or should have stepped back a bit more!

    He (#7) might have been considered not tackler as standing and not weighing (to be supported) enough on the tackled player on the ground?

    Are you saying... you have to let him up, ref?

    For clarity, in my case he was releasing (not releasing is a different call from not coming through the gate, after all), he wasn't interfering with the BC placing the ball, and he was on his feet. Just pressing up with his hands and bringing himself to his feet in the tackle zone, not behind it and coming in.

    They are not required to "leave" the tackle area (if we take the definition of remaining 'leaving' to be over 1m from the tackle zone, but they do have to retire to their own side.

    Up until the end of the 2017/2018 season a tackler could get to his feet and play the ball from any direction. This was changed in WR rewrite of the tackle/ruck fiasco caused by Italy against England in that year's 6N.
