The Land Rover Sunroof Challenge

The Land Rover Sunroof Challenge

Later today the top for in the Guinness Premiership will meet in the semis in what should be yet another highly entertaining afternoon of rugby. This clip features those four sides taking part in the Sunroof Challenge, where they need to pass the ball into the roof of a Land Rover from the 22m line.

Based on the original crossbar challenge idea of Soccer AM, which led to rugbys Crossbar Challenge with Scott Quinnell, this particular test of skill requires the players to pass the ball directly into the sunroof, preferably without breaking the windscreen.

As youll see, theres a bit of kicking involved for those who dont fancy their passing ability, and in general because of the distance, it proves to be quite a bit more challenging than what youd initially think.

All the teams that were visited as part of the Land Rover Guinness Premiership tour took part, but for the purposes of a light hearted build up to the semi finals this weekend, this video features the sides that will be fighting it out for a place in the final.

Leicester Tigers play Bath at Welford Road, while Northampton Saints host Saracens at Franklins Gardens. While there are not too many sunroof challenge hotshots, the matches today will no doubt provide a far higher skill level.

Kick off for the first game is at 13:00 local time, with the second at 16:00.
