Stephen Myler slots conversion with help of powerful wind

Rugby is often played in poor weather conditions in the northern hemisphere, so sometimes the elements come together to affect the game rather dramatically, like when this conversion kick was mysteriously blown in at the last moment recently.

James Wilson scored a try for Northampton Saints against Newcastle Falcons in the Aviva Premiership, and while flyhalf Stephen Myler needed some help with holding the ball up for the conversion, nobody will have expected to see it sail through in the way that it did.

It's not the first time something like this has happened, so if you browse through the Related Posts below you'll see some of the others. One of the most memorable was when Rotherham beat Doncaster in extra time with a dramatic wonder kick two years ago.

A few years earlier Dan Carter kicked a now famous freak conversion that swerved in as the Crusaders flyhalf casually jogged off, as if it was planned that way all along.

Just a few months back a London Irish restart was blown backwards, but even that wasn't as incredible as what happened in New Zealand in October last year, when a restart kick was blown all the way back over their own dead ball line.

Of course on this occasion Myler is entitled to take the credit, and he probably was fully in control of what happened, or maybe he just has some higher powers we weren't aware of until now.
