    It probably was discussed by those who needed to know.

    We had this last year in the NRC. From memory, the 5 metre line was used.

    But might be moot because nobody appears to be trialling it :

    The area I am confused on it the the tackle height. They did one trial on the tackle height being chest height and it was found that reducing the tackle height cause more head injuries? (I think that's correct) so they have now decided to reduce it (for the trial) to waist height? I can't see the logic here!

    I think the problem with the tackle height of chest was that there were more head injuries to tacklers, and I think less to ball carriers, but net was an increase. I think they are trying the waist high tackle to see if that reduces head injuries overall.
