I’ve heard people say you should  be able to reach out an arms length but as of the rules now that rulings fair 

That only comes into play if the ball carrying arm dies not touch the floor.

Isn’t there provision for placing the ball if the tackled player is sliding along - or does that not apply as soon as the ball carrying arm touches the ground?

You beat me to it. I'm a slow typer. 😀

Double movement or not, the decision was no try, so decision made and argument over.

The broader question for the future: if the attackers elbow touches the ground, does that signify the tackle is complete? I thought that the players progress had to be effectively stopped, so a double movement is counted if the player is stopped and then moves again.

Not 100%. Had he slid, the try would have been fine. Once your ball carrying arm hits the ground though, you can't then make a 2nd movement with it. Although they have muddied that in recent years by allowing it if momentum takes you over the line.

If a tackler has his hands on an attacker and his elbow is grounded the tackle is deemed complete.

Great atmosphere in the ground, both sets of fans doing their bit. Thousands of Wakefield fans outside before the game too.

Not long to go before the main game now.

From the Laws of the Game

Grounded (a) when they are held by one or more opposing players and the ball or the hand or arm holding the ball comes into contact with the ground.

What’s the law for a gang tackle with momentum pushing a player into touch? Kendall penalised both teams for it in the 1st half.

I can only remember the one where Smith was penalised for stripping the ball.

If attacking player slides over without promoting his arm, that's fine.

I think a lot still are.  I prefer to watch this warm up game rather than ale it up till 5 minutes before our kick off.
