    Not sure if this is going to work, but I saw a video clip of Pocock doing exactly this on Facebook

    they could ... but they have got to run faster than a sprinting attacker, get past him, get in fornt of him, and effect a tackle.

    almost any back that's received the ball post tackle from quick ball eg a pop up WILL score. (after a line break)

    That would force the defence line not to leave anyone loose
    but i can understand your point and agree with you

    well I'm not convinced that any defense ever tries to leave an attacker loose...

    Err ... perhaps because they think they'll get the ball and score?

    Exactly. Only "physical contact" (as opposed to a full bind) is needed to form a ruck. If Greens were switched on, they could have picked up the ball and gone forward unopposed, or grab a Gold player in the tackle area (forming a ruck) and put Pocock out of the game.

    When tactics change to exploit a laws loophole (ie. no offsides lines formed at tackle) there is a tendancy to jump in with a laws mod to 'fix' the problem. Such is the case with the SH law trials.

    I'm not in favor of this. I'd rather see this as an opportunity for the game to adjust such as been suggested here. Unfortunately it complicates refereeing somewhat.

    So the nend result will either be a lot more undefendable tries, or yellow cards potentially with PTs as defenders now just tackle in offside postitions. You'd possibly have a lot more PTs being awarded for offside tackles inside the attacker's own half.

    ... and that is what happened almost immediately when it was being trialled so it was dropped.

    Well then....live and let live.
    It's just important that both teams know this and play their game
