Tackle from behind

The tackler should:
  • chase the ball carrier until within diving distance
  • wrap their arms around the hips/legs of the ball carrier
  • with their head to the side, make contact with their shoulder and pull their arms towards them until the ball carrier is taken to the ground
  • squeeze their arms tight and slide down the ball carrier’s body (remembering to keep their head to one side) to finish on top of the ball carrier
