    So they try to counter-ruck.
    Get a good hit, but he isn't blown off his feet because he's holding onto the player on the ground.
    Counter-ruck fails.

    Still good?

    No, nothing like that. That clip is foul play.

    I guess I've got a bit of an equity issue with it. Red tackled player is off his feet so presumably out of the game but can still be an effective piece of ballast for a team mate. So isn't out of the game.

    ... and one counter to solid latching that was developed is the barrel/croc roll (other terms are available) which then in itelse brought legality issues - not to mention technical issues l;ike grabbing the chest and not the neck!

    Our gator roll can only be performed on players with hands on the ball, so can't apply here.

    Yes, he has survived the clear-out.

    I misread... red push blue back, and the ball is dragged back by the blue anchor who is being pulled along the ground. PK. Anchoring in itself is often hard to judge C&O, and I try to manage.
