General Pattern of Play
Plymouth winger had made a break and was closing on the try line with only the Salve winger (14) close behind him. Offence happened less than 5 m from the try line within 10 m of the left touch line

Detailed Report of Incident
The chasing Salve player attempted to tackle the Plymouth player from behind approximately 5 m from the Salve try line. The Salve player grabbed the Plymouth player by his shirt collar with one hand and his shoulder with the other resulting in a "horse collar" type tackle while his other arm was high. He prevented the try being scored. As a try would almost certainly have been scored if the high tackle had not occurred a penalty try was awarded and the offending player was issued a yellow card.
