Can someone look at my gameplay and tell me why I am turning the ball over?

It's the contested rucks.

Not entirely sure how to read the circular meter. Do I want it to fill blue?

So my current process is this, run, get tackled, press Square once to fight off contest, hit quick bind if I am out on the edges away from my forwards, if I am inside I hit heavy bind. I tap bind either way 2 maybe 3 times.

Am I supposed to wiggle the RS to move the ball back towards my pick up man? I do sometimes but can't figure out if it does anything or if it's just me wiggling the RS while the games animation plays out.

Wiggling the right stick won't do anything. It's just about bringing players into bind. If you are losing a lot of rucks I would look at the game sliders.
Ah ok would be a cool mechanic if moving the RS helped cycle the ball out quicker.

Can the ball not be moved back towards pickup if you don't have a certain amount of players in the ruck?

I watch the AI to try to copy their methods and they are able to get the ball out so much quicker than me.
I think the CPU almost exclusively uses heavy bind. But yeah the fact you have to wait for your circle to fill up is awful.
Yeah I was watching Wales Scotland and wales did a cool little pick and go, player was tackled, 1 bind came in on the left and slightly angled the ruck, ball rolled out and the 9 quickly picked up and scooted. It all took like 3 seconds tops and looked sweet.

No matter what I try I can't replicate that in this game.
