Law Discussions Law discussion: tackling man without ball? Argentina are putting the ball through short phases which are not advancing. Marcos Kremer has the ball and is tackled by Schalk Brits and Vincent Koch. He falls to ground and a tackle-ruck forms. The ball come back to the waiting scrumhalf, Felipe Ezcurra of Argentina. Ezcurra looks down at the ball, picks it up and is turning to pass it to his left when Siya Kolisi of South Africa bursts through and tackles him. The referee, who was close to the action, penalises Kolisi, saying: "He didn't have the ball yet and you tackled him. He must pick the ball up."
