Lionel Beauxis incredible skill against Bath

When Bath played Stade Francais in the Heineken Cup last weekend, the same match that we featured with the Matt Banahan hit, Stade flyhalf Lionel Beauxis displayed some superb moments of brilliance.

There’s been quite a few requests over the last week, for the one piece of skill in particular, so we’ve got that up today, and have included another two examples of the quality of the Frenchman.

He slotted a superb dropgoal early in the match, giving Stade the lead with the huge kick that he struck helluva sweetly from the halfway line. Not bad considering he had little time to set himself and not a whole lot of space.

It must be noted that the camera work for this match was great. It looks like there are some new super-slow-mo cameras in action, which pick up and focus on little bits of play, allowing us to see the game in more detail and from a slightly different perspective. If anyone knows anymore about that, please let us know.

A fine example of that camera work, and of Beauxis skill, was when he controlled an incoming 22m drop out with his foot, ala some of the great French footballers. The camera picked it up perfectly and Beauxis showed what a talented player he is.

A few minutes later he sent a pinpoint touchfinder deep into the Bath half, pegging them back as he showed his all round ability with the boot.

Kids, don’t try this at home.
