Queensland Reds fly half James O’Connor produced one of the worst kicks you’re likely to see this year against the Melbourne Rebels.
The Wallabies playmaker attempted a clearance kick with his left foot which came straight off the side of the boot and into the arms of Rebels lock Matt Philip.
!! Understatement Alert !! 🗣️”O’Connor…. not his best kick”
After this slice the Rebels now lead 3-0!
