Shane Williams missed winning drop goal

Shane Williams missed winning drop goal

The Ospreys are still without an away win in this years Magners League after a narrow loss to Munster on the weekened.

With all the pressure on Munster in the final phases of the game, the Ospreys had control of the ball and could have shown a bit more composure with time running out, to perhaps suck in a penalty or at least give the drop kicker a bit more time on the ball.

Instead, it was flung back to winger Shane Williams who, under pressure, hit his snap drop inches wide.

Was this kick from this player actually on, with James Hook off the field and nobody else to turn to? Or did the Ospreys indeed rush the situation a wee bit?

Devastatingly close whatever the opinions, this one finished 9-8 to Munster.

Would have never expected Williams to be the one for the Drop Goal (attempt). Either way, was really close... In my eyes, they were close to the try line, they should have kept their stand and tried pushing forward for the try.
