Francois Steyn winning dropgoals vs Australia

The 2007 Tri Nations is underway, in spectacular fashion. This match, played on June 16th in Cape Town, South Africa, went right down the wire.

After an unsuccessful Springbok raid, the ball was cleared by Larkham. It did not find touch however, allowing 20 year old Francois Steyn to work his magic.

Turning and making the 40 meter touchline dropgoal look easy, Steyn once again showed that he won't die wondering, backing himself and going for it.

The second was from much closer, but with more pressure. Both are phenomenal displays of skill and we should expect to see more of the same from this talented young man.

  • Yes, this will be the springboks artillary, it will come from drop goals, and only comes from drop goals.

  • didnt the clearance come from huxley? Thats not really important, but I was watching it live, and man, I was so cut when that 45m droppy went over. So cut. then the 35m one to clinch it. Such good defence by the aussies throughout though!!

  • Amazing display of consistent defense by the Wallabies during the whole game. What they did not antecipate was the aamazing Steyn! How could White leave him sitting on the bench, with Habana out for injury and starting with two wingers that lost the ball in contact more than once?!
    This guy must be on the starting 15!
    I can only see 2 other players currently in the world kick such drops: Dan Carter and Johnny Wilkinson. That's how good he is!

  • Gents we are privileged to able to witness the coming of a new phenom in the form of a nondescript young man bearing the name Frans Steyn, what impresses me the most is that he continually backs himself never shows and doubt in his abilities (how good would the BOK's be if all the player behaved so?) Another thing that impressed me with this young BUCK is his humility, he never rubs it in the opponents faces and even (like a true rugby fan) goes and swaps his jersey after the match...IN THE OPPONENTS CHANGE ROOM!!...that is pure class. As for the Wallabies, i must give them credit for the Trojan like defense they showed, unbelievable...let any Northern Hemisphere loud mouth still claim that N/H rugby is tougher or even better....not freaking likely...till next week, we'll hopefully be serving up a nicely medium/rare Kiwi, lightly spiced and totally ground down...:)

  • that first one is awesome for a right-footed kicker!!

  • Little worrying for Bok fans that they didn't have the dominance everyone expect after the Super 14 this year.

    Credit to the Aussies for good defence, but also big questions about the Bok's attacking power.

    Would question their chances against New Zealand based on that performance.

  • Great game the best I've seen in a long time. Drop goals should = 1 point not three, not to say it wasn't a great kick but keep the attacking rugby going and leave the drop goals out.

  • @ one of the anons

    No, the clearance came from Bernie.

    That kid has a wicked boot... and guts to spare. He's going to be a legend.

    By Blogger Scoops, at June 18, 2007 10:28 pm  

  • the 2 wingers were really really really poor.. hope habana recovers asap.. the boks lineout was really poor and their attacking play was quite one dimensional.. hope they improve when they meet the all blacks

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 19, 2007 5:05 am  

  • wtf???
    lol

    a drop goal from the 10 meter line is ok, but he was almost in the fuckin touchline!
    i want a guy like that in my team!

  • This guys got some boot, cant wait to see him in the World Cup. Just as long as he doesnt sink another couple of winners against Australia again

  • damn that guys good
    i hope for everyother country, mainly australia, that this guy breaks his leg like that guy from wales

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 22, 2007 11:56 am  

  • hahahahahaha your wishing he breaks his leg hahaha that's slack but funny

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at August 31, 2007 6:08 am  

  • Thor asked why Steyn isn't in the starting 15, well the sad truth is thor that is SA our rugby team is solely based on skill, Our new government demands that our rugby coach should have atleast 30% coloured players in the squad, if their better than the other player or not,We have some great coloured players, like Habana, but some players really don't deserve to wear the green and gold, like our wingers on that match against australia, o well what can we do.
    i love springbok rugby but next year the requirements for the team is that hlaf of them MUST be coloured, if they have skill or not, so this is probably the last year i will support the boks,i dont know why we cant just pick players on skill.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 09, 2007 7:03 am  

  • sorry i meant isnt solely based on skill.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 09, 2007 7:05 am  

  • That guy is a pretty skilled biter too, another dirty south african. what do they put in the water over there to make the players so dirty?

    By Anonymous capt, at September 25, 2007 5:56 am  

  • capt, he was cleared of biting. He is not a dirty player in the slightest, the Tongan was a lying scumbag, plus the citing came from Aussie/Kiwi pressure on the Tongan management to do so. They admitted they didn't want to press for it.

    Anyway, the Aussies and the ABs are out, so, sucks to be you!

  • fukin amazin even better than jannie de beer

    By Blogger Scotland No2, at October 08, 2007 8:19 pm  

  • well, the world cup has come and gone and teh Springboks won it. In part due to this talented player. Great darting runs to add to his deadly kicking abilities... Watch this space for this guy in the future games and tournaments. Naas Botha would be proud

    By Blogger mauman, at October 21, 2007 1:07 pm  

  • oh schuks..South Africa vs Barbarians drop goal attempts just didnt want to get over that cross bar..but bluddy hell! you see the kick from 10 metres inside his own half..practically scraped the bar...too bad they culdnt get the full team out but Frans played great apart from his kicking :D

    By Anonymous Springbok93, at December 03, 2007 6:50 pm  

  • Does anyone know why he didn't start either of the two tests against Wales?
