Super Rugby Aotearoa has seen an influx of drop goals over the opening two rounds in New Zealand with four in four games.
The opening game between the Highlanders and Chiefs ended in dramatic fashion with Damian McKenzie and Bryn Gatland both slotting late drop goals.
2⃣ drop kicks in 3⃣ minutes.
Bryn Gatland breaking his Dad’s heart! Unreal spectacle from both the @Highlanders & @ChiefsRugby in Dunedin.#HIGvCHI pic.twitter.com/fJb7eXuAZy

Finally Jackson Garden-Bachop scored a lovely three-pointer against the Crusaders this weekend.
