Riaan Viljoen's huge drop goal against the Brumbies

While it was a huge weekend for European rugby, here's a quick clip from down south that is worth seeing, as Cheetahs fullback Riaan Viljoen slotted a massive drop goal against the Brumbies.

It's not the first time we've seen him do it either. For a fairly small guy, he's got amazing power in that boot, as was seen in the opening minutes of the Cheetahs' Super Rugby meeting with the Canberra side.

This clip is featured today, but it was by no means the only good thing to happen in the game. In fact the home side, the Cheetahs, won 47-36 to pick up only their second win of the season. Nine tries were scored in all, and despite almost blowing a 25-0 lead, the Cheetahs hung on.

Of notable mention were the two front rowers for the home side, WP Nel and Coenie Oosthuizen. The latter came up with an audacious goosestep to go with his try, while Nel scored a nice one that included an upright dive whereby his feet almost hit the ground first.

Clips of those two will be shown during the week possibly. It was a bad loss for the Brumbies though, who now slump to their seventh loss of the tournament. They did earn and bonus point though, and will be buoyed by the news that coach Jake White will be joining them soon.

  • decent strike on him, why did he feel the need to go for it though? Was it his lack of support around him or did he just fancy having a crack for the lads??

  • probably something he knew he could do from the training ground. Puts huge pressure on the opposition when they have to clear, makes sure they give away the lineout rather than keep it in play

  • RD, apparantly at the end of the Reds / Hurricanes game when Cruden was lining up his kick at goal, the reds were yelling abuse at him. After he got the kick over he retaliated. Is there any footage of this?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 03, 2011 8:00 am  

  • Gotta love the Cheetahs! If it weren't for the big budgets of the Bulls and sharks, these boys would be untouchable.
    Would love to see the Free State boys all stay in Bloem, regardless of money. Easier said than done I imagine.

  • Eventhough this happened in South Africa where the balls travels miles, that is hugely impressive from a pretty small feller. Could not have hit it more sweetly

  • Cheis, that is a good question: can you slot a drop goal on a kickoff?

    Somebody smarter than me please answer?

  • "Altitudes and atmospheres come hand in hand clown face..."

    hahah you're the clown face. the atmosphere they are playing in is the same as any other atmosphere in the world (the troposphere). it's only the altitude that aids the kicker. nice strike btw.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 03, 2011 7:38 pm  

  • What perfect technique.

    only 1 minute on the clock at 3-0 up, great start for his team.

    Impressive stuff

  • 'hahah you're the clown face. the atmosphere they are playing in is the same as any other atmosphere in the world (the troposphere). it's only the altitude that aids the kicker. nice strike btw'

    Atmospheric pressure R'tard.

    At sea level it is known as 1 Atmosphere. Below sea level this increases...i.e the pressure increases....

    Above sea level this DECREASES... therefore instead of playing at 1 Atmosphere they may be playing at 1/2 Atmospheres or 3/4 Atmospheres depending on the altitude...

    But hey, good attempt to try and sound brainy!
