Jerry Collins with his farewell kick for the Hurricanes

Jerry Collins with his farewell kick for the Hurricanes

With many of us still getting over Jerry Collins' surprise retirement announcement , we thought it was appropriate to bring you a short clip of his final moment in New Zealand rugby.

As the Crusaders marched on to glory and a Super 14 final meeting with the Waratahs, the Hurricanes scored a consolation try at the end of the Semi Final.

Up stepped big Jerry to take the conversion, already aware that it was to be his final farewell to the 'Canes and the New Zealand rugby audience.

He slotted the kick like a pro, choosing to go with the good old fashioned classic kicking style that was so popular for many years in the past.

Jerry will be seen in the famous Barbarians colours tonight against Ireland, and while over there in the UK, I have no doubt he'll be taking part in contract negotiations with the many clubs who would definitely love to have a player of his stature in their team.

I assume he did know what he had planned hence the request to kick the ball?Love the way they used to kick, wonder if the IRB are going to make that statutory to negate kicking experts like Wilko and O'gara ;)
