Something Im gonna suggest to my league for "exhibition games"
When blocking you can choose to use a Block die with alternate results :
-keep your usual POW, SKULL and one PUSH only
-add these results to the die :
Grappled both players stand still but lose their TZ until the end of the turn
Feint the attacker may move one square in any direction. this move is free and ignore tacklezones as with any follow up
Counterpush attacking player is pushed back one square, defender may follow-up

it makes for a "less risk, less reward" block action.

obviously this more "finesse" die would change the balance of the game between agile teams and strength teams, however id like feedback on potential gamebreaking loopholes. Also should it be allowed to mix regular blocking dice and alternate dice ?

now to find good symbols for those results...

Am I correct in seeing that the only way to get the ball from a ball carrier would be on a pow?

The skills block, wrestle and to some extent dodge and strip ball would be less useful as well.

yes
it wasnt clear but the alternate die would not replace the classic but could be used instead of it (or maybe mixed with on 2 or 3 dice blocks ?)

this is part of the intent, yes
