WATCH: Hat-trick of drop goals exposes potential weakness in new law change

Sharks fly half Henry ‘Boeta’ Chamberlain took full advantage of the new goal line drop out rule with a kicking masterclass against the Ospreys on Friday.

The new rule states that if a player is held up over the try line then the defending team gets a goal line drop out rather than a scrum to the attacking side.

The same rule applies if the ball is kicked over the try line and touched down by the defending team, which according to the old ruling would have been taken from the 22-metre line.

Former Wales international Gareth Anscombe was given the kicking duties for Ospreys and on two occasions he landed the ball directly on Chamberlain, who was hovering around the halfway line.

Having received the ball with plenty of time and space, the 22-year-old South African showed impeccable composure and skill on two separate occasions to convert both kicks with ease at the Liberty Stadium.

Chamberlain also slotted a brilliant impromptu drop goal in the first half meaning the youngster nailed a hat trick of three-pointers in Swansea.

Chamberlain made his debut for the Sharks in 2019 and looks a promising prospect for the future, possibly in gold and green.

Ospreys head coach, Toby Booth, said: “It was very disappointing, especially the nature of the performance to where we have been. We need to improve and improve quickly.

“We did not establish any field position and could not get out of our half. It was a typical South African pressure performance and we did not have any answers and that was the disappointing thing.

“We need to look at ourselves collectively and individually. We came second best tonight.”
