Tackle Law clarification, please.

I'm watching the Ireland South Africa match, and a SA attacker has just been tackled to the ground. The Irish tackler then released him but the SA man simply got up and carried on running, with the ref shouting that he wasn't held.

So the question is, how long must a tackler hold on to an attacker so he is deemed to be held, and yet not get penalised for not releasing (if indeed the tackler does have to release)?

Depends completely on sirs discretion, if it's us tackling we,ll get blown for not releasing..... And then 10 yards for blabbing... .

While it's under sirs discretion, sir needs to be consistent throughout the course of the game. This is not happening.

Sir was very light handed in his application of that law yesterday I thought!

It's been creeping in bit by bit and I hate it. So inconsistent and annoying.If you are tackled and hit the ground that should be it, place the ball back.

Yep,the grounded attacker wriggling, crawling, burrowing, forward is making it impossible to strip the ball,especially when accompanied by late arriving clear outs diving in.
Why this unfair advantage to the tackled player.

I was led to believe if a knee touches the ground, the tackle is considered complete.
