Dan Carter massive penalty contributes to 46-25 win

New Zealand overcame South Africa at Loftus Versfeld on the weekend with a more than convincing 46-25 victory.

The All Blacks ooze class, there's no doubt about it, but the way in which the Springboks sat back and allowed them to score 80 meter tries without laying a hand on them was highly disappointing. The Springboks have the players, the talent, and the ability, but there's something missing in their belief and mentality at times.

Dan Carter was immense throughout the game, as usual. He is a player of pure quality, as displayed by his penalty on the stroke of half-time that was easily over 60 meters. Note how he treats it like any other kick, taking hardly any time at all. I suppose that's the secret when you have nothing to lose just before going into the tunnel.

  • John, that is the biggest pile of crap i have ever heard

  • I would imagine john is exagerating but it wouldn't suprise me that much if he had made a kick from about 60m out, with a big enough wind and a very good strike it's quite doable especially if it's at high altitude.
    Andrew Mertens used to knock over 60 - 65m kicks in training all the time i've heard, never seen any footage though?
    The kicker in my club has got one from the touch line at halfway in the rain which is about 56m and that was a second team game so i cant see why 65m is so unbelieveable?
