Drew Mitchell and the Waratahs got used to standing behind their posts on Saturday as they conceded five tries and Leigh Halfpenny slotted eight kicks at goal. Early on Mitchell made things a bit more interesting, showing a great piece of skill as he caught the ball between his feet.

You may have missed it live, but we’ve had many requests as it was clearly quite impressive.

His good mate Adam Ashley-Cooper caught one behind the back recently, which was also from a Halfpenny kick, and in the past John Eales was known to get up high and catch the ball before it went over. That was since outlawed, despite it being good fun to see whenever it happend.

This is just a little something extra that you might enjoy seeing, and trying during your next game.

    Nice tricks out of the category "how to look good when losing"

    The idea was to catch it in his hands after it travelled back over his head. Which he did once in a while but often not.

  • Gutsy, if he'd miss-timed it that could have been a nasty bounce!

  • RD can you dig up the elbow by the irish on Canadian 13 from the last game, before McFadden's 2nd try I say foul play.

    Nice skills. I agree, he played well on Saturday. Hope he gets back in the Aussie colors :) RD, speaking of funny little things during the game, can you dig up Neil Jenkins' accidental falcon in the Lions game vs Combined Country, after Hogg hits the post on a conversion kick, in the 13th minute? Makes for fun watching ;)
