Rob Andrew winning dropgoal 1995

In the 1995 World Cup quarter final in Cape Town between England and Australia, flyhalf Rob Andrew kicked this winning dropgoal to secure the victory for the English. It knocked the previous World Champion Wallabies out of the tournament, and resulted in a 25-22 win.

What it also meant is that England faced a meeting with the almighty All Blacks in the semi final, and in particular, Jonah Lomu. But that's another story altogether.

With the 2007 World Cup currently taking place, we've already seen a few dropgoals being snapped up, and my thinking is that we may yet see history made later in the tournament, with precisely this form of adding to your teams total.

There have been calls for the dropgoal to be reduced to less points as people feel it's just to easy. In my opinion its an art form that is achieved through hard work and takes some skill to achieve, especially under pressure.

Time will tell, but watch this space - a winning drop may just determine the outcome of the tournament.
