Spear tackles are highly illegal and considered dangerous play. A spear tackle may result in sending-off and/or the offending player may be put on report and later appear before the judiciary where they may be suspended from playing for any number of weeks decided by the judicial panel.

Also long standing rules such as no tackling above the shoulders have been reinforced comparatively recently with rules such as no tackling men in the air and no spear tackling(a tackle where by you lift your opposition up then force him into the ground head first).

no it's to good and kids enjoy it -- As in any sport there are risks. Rugby in both codes is a high impact contact sport. The action of tackling, rucking and scrummaging requires intense contact and considerable strength to win position of the ball. There have been some very unfortunate injuries in the time the game has developed. However, the IRB continue to work aggressively to remove as much risk as possible without ruining the game. You will see players banned for dangerous play, sent off under red card rules for using spear tackles etc. However, the game has always been a hard game, but played with the correct attitudes it is one of the worlds greatest games. As the old saying goes "Rugby is a thugs game played by gentlemen".
