German hooker slots drop goal to help claim bonus point vs Romania

German hooker slots drop goal to help claim bonus point vs Romania

Rugby World Cup 2015 attendees Romania beat Germany 17-12 in their European Nations Cup Division 1A match in Heidelberg. The visitors scored the only try of the game, but with Germany trailing and time almost up, the hosts snatched a losing bonus point.

Hooker Dale Garner, of Stourbridge RFC (a National 2 North club in the UK), was involved in the build up at 0-3, and obviously realised that a try wasn’t on as they didn’t have much momentum. So after hopping up off the floor and grabbing the loose ball, Garner went for a snap drop.

The result, three points for his side, which led to them getting within seven by the end, and achieving a losing bonus point against a traditionally much stronger side. Not bad for a front rower.
