When van Rensburg started to slide the opponent was already going for the ball and actually got to it first. As he came into contact, van Rensburg stuck out a leg and stole the ball as he slid underneath the opponent. That is an illegal tackle worthy of a Yellow Card. Van Rensburg took a risk and it backfired.
