As long as the player with the ball has picked up at the base of the ruck and not run into any of his/her teammates in front, then play continues as normal and the ruck is over.
The ball must be at the back of the ruck otherwise the referee may penalise for "handling in a ruck." If, in normal play, a teammate binds onto the ball carrier as long as it is just before contact the referee normally allows play to continue.

I hope this helps you.
Simon, Thanks for the info...... after teaching our players to latch on they were doing in from open play. I guess if they are just holding onto the ball carriers shorts/shirt then there would be no problem. Our players started to bind on well before contact was made and were penalised when doing it from a tap penalty.
