    I'm glad to see it, but I wonder how it'll be policed when someone ducks into a tackle.

    I think it's a good move. Should reduce the number of "riding up" tackles that are basically headbutts.

    It will be interesting to see the effect it has on tackling technique. Tacklers will have to pick their spot.

    Not sure this trial is that necessary
    also does it need a new thread. surely just the laws thread would do for this topic?

    Details announced by the RFU see the definition of a high tackle lowered from above the line of the shoulders to above the armpit line.

    Being trialled in the Championship Cup, which replaces the B&I Cup. Greene King Championship sides taking part.
