Video Example – Tip Tackle

Posted by SCRRS Website Committee on July 24th, 2010

Here is an example of a tackle from the third 2010 Tri-Nations match between Australia and South Africa. James O’Conner tackles Victor Matfield in the open field. The tackle comes very close to being a dangerous tackle. O’Conner is lucky Matfield is a much bigger opponent and wasn’t lifted over horizontal. The tackle was not ruled as dangerous and no yellow card was issued.

Referee Advice

If a coach is on your back, but not enough to warrant a confrontation, then stay away from him or her. This is especially true at half time. Standing near an unhappy coach or fan, just to “show him”, will only lead to further tension.
