He’s lucky he’s not in the NFL because that’s definitely offensive pass interference. No way Goodell puts up with that being in the best interest of the player if he commissions rugby. He could have concussed himself or his opponent. For sure that’s a $25,000 fine. Goodell might even suspend him too. That’s just the way Rog rolls. Judge, jury and executioner.
Side Note: This is the exact reason I don’t play rugby. There’s absolutely no rules. Just a bunch of crazed men running around leaping over each other for the ball. Don’t get me started on their scrums either. Pinching and poking would be the least of your worries.
