Now that we all know what a try, penalty try and conversion is, let’s have a look at the drop goal also known as a dropped goal. A Drop goal occurs when a player kicks the ball between the opposition’s goal posts above their cross bar. Very important when attempting a drop goal is that the ball must strike the ground first before kicked over the posts. A drop goal counts for three points. From my experience I can honestly say that drop goals have often been the key factor for most victories in huge tournaments. Like the rugby world cup!!! My favorite drop goal was back in 2003 when Jonny Wilkinson scored a drop goal winning England the world cup against Australia. So my Rugga Fans who scored your favorite drop goal?
