Dissecting that Saracens red card tackle


George Smith, the legendary Wallabies back-row, was in his suit and tie, talking about tackling to three former, experienced rugby players at a central Bristol hotel Tuesday evening. Tackling is a part of life that has become as familiar to him as putting clothes on, going to the supermarket or, probably, breathing. The three facing him also know a thing or two about tackling as they sat as the panel for his hearing following the red card he was issued for his collision with Jackson Wray last Saturday in Bristol Bears’ match against Saracens.

In World Rugby’s laws, the definition of a tackle runs just 19 words long. Simple, right? Well, no, and an audience with Smith, 38, proves as much.
