USA Tackle Video
It is often difficult to safely and effectively coach a tackle, especially to new players of the game. However, if coaches had more insight as to what the Referee’s will be looking for on the pitch, then your team would have an advantage. Check out the helpful link below!

To attain better consistency at the tackle, USA Rugby Referee Management have put together 20 minutes of 40 clips (all 2009 RSL matches), covering most aspects of the tackle and ruck– what is allowed and what should not be allowed. Also included, are recommendations for unplayables – understand that a quick unplayable is a key tool to communicate a message to players.(Note: an unplayable is when a player falls over the ball and makes it unplayable to either side. Sanction a penalty kick.) Link to the video is here:
