High / dangerous tackles result in the offender sitting out the rest of the training session.


I like your style Lanzaman, perhaps IRFU could issue similar guidelines to all concerned and school refs bin all high tackles to sort this out.

Mini coaches are worse. I nearly came to blows with a geezer when I asked him to replace a player after his third high tackle in the first half. His colleague eventually told him to wind his neck in and that I was right. It emerged later in the club that the colleague was the father of the cub.

I was stupid enough to attempt a tackle a bit too high on a player a lot bigger than me at uni last year. The result, broken nose. A minor knock, although I haven't played rugby since as I'm not confident in my tackling technique.


29 times the pain indeed?

One of our teachers at Belfast Boys' Model always encouraged us to tackle low, to the point where he was hopping up and down the touchline. Whether the kids like it or not, tackling is an important part of the game, and tackling low will stop anyone.

29 that is normally how you learn,albeit the hard way,if you are not confident 9 times out of 10 you will be injured,back your self and your support players coming in to help you, and the next time you go to tackle get the timing right,and make the tackle on your own terms,do that a few times until you get it right [practice it in training even walking thru the tackle] your confidence will grow and you will enjoy the game more.

Still feel for his parents , teachers and youth coaches have a great responsibility ,when you send your kids to school in the morning you expect them to be in good care.
