Reece Hodge gets fed up with tee, does it himself for brilliant three points

The Queensland Reds got back in the win column Friday night, defeating the Melbourne Rebels 37-23 at Suncorp Stadium. One highlight for the Rebels, however, was this brilliant drop goal penalty from a quick-thinking Reece Hodge after the ball had fallen twice from the tee.

Hodge is squarely in the upper echelon of massive boots and his range is always a potent weapon. Although this wasn't the longest of kicks, his quickness of mind and casual way he slotted the 30-metre penalty, after the tee mishap, is the stuff of legend. 

Brad Thorn's squad picked up the bonus point victory with a penalty try and tries going to Izack Rodda, Filipo Daugunu, and Jono Lance.

Hodge did his part for the Rebels, scoring 13 with the boot. 

The Rebels loss means that the Waratahs can now breathe a little easier as they look to hold the top spot of the Australian conference.
