So, if a ball player runs behind another one of his players, and the defender makes the wrong decision and tackles the decoy while the ball runner runs behind this player - play on?

When you say physically impedes...are you saying......

If the decoy takes out the defender by physically impeding him, then that is penalty...

What if the defender makes a bad decision and tackles the decoy on suspicion, play on?

It's a bit open to interpretation from the refs / video ref but basically yes, if a defender makes a bad read on a odecoy runner and goes out of HIS way to make a tackle then it's all good. It's only really when a decoy runner charges through and takes out a defender who has no intention of tackling him that an obstruction will be called. Well that's my understanding from what the various commentators say during replays of these things in games

^ it's become rugby league's equivalent of the blocking foul / charge call in basketball - open to interpretation

So in which round this year did the rule change?

Neilson gets sucked into tackling the decoy which opened up the the huge hole...called back for a penalty.

So, they have changed the rule, you can run behind your player (which in 99.99%) of cases is going to cause the defender to make a decision. But the defender is going to have make a decision that they should never have to make.

I agree, ON THE PASS, it is valid...but not when you run behind your own player...

This is going to end in tears.
