North Otago’s Ben McCarthy had more than just wind to contend with as he lined up a conversion from out wide.
Leading 87 – 23 over Horowhenua-Kapiti, McCarthy’s conversion was hardly crucial but still a kickers record is a sacred stat that must be protected at all times.
As he fixed his gaze between the uprights, the unsavoury yet hilarious image of a long-haired streaker who was too proud of his cheeks came racing into his eye line.
Despite the streakers presence, McCarthy pierced the uprights with exceptional accuracy to make the score a whopping 89 – 23.
Fair play to North Otago’s Ben McCarthy, managed to slot this one despite the distraction 😂 pic.twitter.com/U43c9761YM
