Sarah Mckenna plays crossbar challenge with cheeky drop goal

There’s no such thing as a boring drop goal. Yes, they can be taken over a potentially try-scoring opportunity, but they’ll get talked about either way.

One only has to think about some of the famous drop goals in history, to know that they stick in a supporter’s mind. Dan Carters in the 2015 World Cup final, Jonny Wilkinson 12 years prior, or even Freddie Burns’ last-minute nudge to win the premiership final last year. Albeit Burns’ drop goal was eclipsed only by his fantastic antics afterwards.

Since the goal line dropouts have been introduced we’ve seen a lot more opportunistic drop goals on the return. A tactic that both George Ford and Adam Hastings have taken full advantage of. Well, this time it was the turn of Sarah Mckenna. With impeccable technique and the coolest composure, the Saracens player slotted a beautiful drop goal on the angle, much to the elation of supporters.

What made this one extra special, however, was how the ball ended up over the posts. As if playing crossbar challenge down the park with her mates, the inside centre pinged the ball off the bar and over it went. Check out these amazing scenes below:

Saracens went on to win the game 36-5 against Bristol in a thoroughly entertaining game at Shaftesbury Park.
