DROP GOAL LEGENDS
the most amazing drop goals


JANNIE DE BEER


JONNY WILKINSON

STEPHEN LARKHAM

NAAS BOTHA

He scored 5 amazing drop goals against England in the 1999 Rugby World Cup, the most ever in an international match. This record may still be around in years to come.

Wilkinson kicked England to World Cup victory in the last minutes of extra-time, in 2003. His right-footed drop goal ended all hope for Australia to retain the World Cup. This was a weird drop goal for Australia as Larkham has never done it before. Nevertheless a great result for the Aussies, as this saw South Africa out of the 1999 World Cup. Naas Botha, a springbok kicking legend, slotted 3 drop goals against Ireland in 1981. South Africa won the match narrowly 12 - 10, thanks to the magical boot of Botha.


ZINZAN BROOKE


ROB ANDREW

JOEL STRANSKY
 

Brooke scored a memorable 40-metre drop goal in the 1995 World Cup semi-final against England, although this was overshadowed by the 4 tries from Jonah Lomu.

Rob Andrew scored a magnificent injury time drop goal in the quarter-finals against Australia to knock them out of the 1995 World Cup. The final score was 25 - 22. The drop goal that changed a nation! Stransky's drop sealed the victory for South Africa in the 1995 World Cup against an inform New Zealand throughout the tournament.
