In Aleisha Neumann’s episode of #UmpireAtHome, we engaged in a 10-minute discussion around this tackle right at the circle edge and fielded many comments on whether the best call was a 23m restart or a penalty corner. Did the one defender’s hand on the ball carrier’s back make a difference? How about the tackler’s low body position and movement into the path of the attacker?
Have your say! Drop us a comment to let us know your thoughts as Aleisha explains her call from her perspective.
