The dump tackle is a tackling technique favoured mainly by rugby league players. The tackler wraps his arms around the ball carrier's thighs and lifts him a short distance in the air before forcibly driving him to the ground. The tackler must go to ground with the ball carrier for the tackle to be legal. In 2005 the IRB ruled that "the act of lifting an opponent off his feet in a tackle AND dropping or 'spearing' that player so that his head and/or upper body comes into contact with the ground first, is a dangerous tackle." therefore in order for a dump tackle to be legal the tackler must make sure that his opponent lands flat on their back and not on their upper backs and or neck.

  • The dump tackle, also known as dumping, tipping, or a tip tackle is a popular tackling technique used in rugby football. The tackler wraps their arms around the ball carrier's thighs and lifts them a short distance in the air before forcibly driving them to the ground. The move is frowned upon in many rugby communities as a dangerous tackling technique, as it puts the player being tackled at risk of a spine, neck, or head injury. However, the move is still popular in some places where rugby is played.

A similar tackle to the dump tackle is the spear tackle, a more dangerous (and illegal) move. This can be done by adding rotation to the player being tackled, causing the player to hit the ground head or neck first. The move can be potentially fatal; at least one person has died from the maneuver, involving an incident in Canada in 2007. A common receiver of the dump tackle are those who slow down or stop before contact.
