Holding the man is an infringement in the game of Australian rules football.[1] This occurs when a player is tackling his opponent without the ball. If the team whose player committed the infringement plays on, then a free kick will be awarded. However, if the team whose player was tackled without the ball plays on, then the advantage is paid.
