The former legendary Cardiff and Welsh scrum-half Mike Philips took to his twitter to respond to the absolute ridiculous idea from the RFU to try an lower the tackle technique. From next season onwards you will have to tackle from the waist below, anything above that could result in a penalty or card.
Not sure this is the best force of action from the Union, but time will tell. The former Lions scrum-half Mike Phillips doesn’t approve anyways and took to his twitter to share his dismay.

High tackles spoil games . Players concussed and being helped off is not a good image for the game. This rule change could be a positive move. This could result in more offloads and a more exciting brand of rugby. Could also encourage more kids to play. @MikeBubbins
