    I wonder if the umpire would have called the foul if the defender would have shown more aggression towards the ball. I do agree with Russell though…

    To me is alright, once a very legendary umpire told me to go for the tackle. If the player blocks then is a foul. In this case, the defender seems extremely passive…

    I believe he was sheilding the ball because the ball wasn’t on his stick as he was stepping sideways therefore giving the defender no chance should be a obstruction
