So does that Aussie at the Storm. The rules are the same for everyone. Regardless of nationality.I hate the strip rules. I prefer it when if another player has at any time been in the tackle it still counts. That pommy bloke at Canberra plays that stripping rule to the nth degree.
True, but sometimes the ref calls "held" too quickly when the movement doesn't stop.When the ref calls held, and the defenders continue to drive the ball-carrier back another another five to ten metres, I don't see why the team in possession aren't entitled to advance the ball to where the held call was made, but that does not seem to happen.
