Jordie Barrett's casual booming dropgoal after the halftime whistle

Clips of this kick spread across the net this week following the third and final Test of the All Blacks vs Lions series. The casual way that 20-year-old Jordie Barrett slotted it was very impressive.

However, there are also some debating whether it was a punt or not. The trajectory of the ball, and the fact that it would make more sense for him to attempt something that is actually part of the game, leads one to suspect it’s a dropkick, and it certainly looks like one at this angle, the only available.  What do you think?

Either way, it’s a great strike, and would have been very handy in the closing minutes of what was a ridiculously tight Test match, ending in a 15-15 stalemate to tie the series. Highlights here

    I once drained a 30 foot curving putt... after four-putting it the first time round.
