Australia are still adopting a high, wrap-up tackle technique, even when they have conceded the gain-line or are on the back foot. This only acts as a soak-up of pressure and unless they get multiple tacklers and hold up the ball, they are conceding valuable yards. Weak tackles lead to offloads and Argentina sent lots of numbers at weak tacklers, flooding channels that they were able to get through. In this example, Matías Orlando powers through the ineffectual high tackles of Reece Hodge and Kurtley Beale. Had Hodge gone low, Michael Hooper could have tried to jackal the ball at the breakdown; instead, he’s scrambling back and unable to prevent an offload.
