2012 Fox Memorial grand final match

This footage of the 2012 Fox Memorial grand final between the Mount Albert Lions and the Glenora Bears shows a sequence of possession (a ‘set’) in which one Mount Albert player after another is tackled. All five tackles allowed are used before the Lions score a try through a clever kick on the last tackle – a common tactic.
