From www.news24.com/News24/Sport/Rugby " Drop goals back in vogue Sydney- with the World Cup less than 10 months away, Wallabies coach John Connolysenses that the dropped goal is ready to rear its head yet again. His suspicions were heightenedwhen watching Springboks flyhalf Andre Pretorius slot 4 dropped goals in Saturday`s 25-14 defeat of England at Twickenham. A week earlier, teenage sensation Francois Steyn attempted a series of long-range efforts for the Springboksin the 1st Test against England. "It`s interesting,with South Africa at the moment, the way they`re playing, getting into position for dropped goals. I just wonder if the dropped goal is coming back into vogue." "I really felt like watching the Springboks against England that there was a dropped goal focus. Against England this series, South Africa had a plan to take the dropped goal with everything they kicked." Hmmm, sounds to me like someone is still having nightmares about a certain drop-goal during extra time of the 2003 World Cup. Should be interesting to get everyone`s views on this- is the drop-goal going to make a comeback at the RWC, is it a legitimate points-scoring weapon, is it the stuff that wins world cups, or is it simply an excuse for a poor game-plan?
