Midweek Madness - The Dan Carter freak conversion

Midweek Madness - The Dan Carter freak conversion

A lot of you will have seen this incredible kick by Dan Carter from last years Super 14 match between the Crusaders and the Highlanders. Until now though, we haven't added it to RD for whatever reason, so it is long overdue.

The conversion came about from a nice Caleb Ralph try in a match that saw the Crusaders run away with the second half, coming out winners 38-3 over the guys from Otago. The try is included in this version of the footage, as well as a replay of the boomerang-like kick that somehow went over.

I can tell you now that there was virtually no wind in the stadium on the night. This kick was pure brilliance. Either that, or pure luck. You decide which way you want to remember it.

Whichever way you want to look at it, we felt it needed to be added to the archives for the superb display of skill, freakishness, or all of the above.

There you go kids - aim it at the corner post and see what happens.
