Video of the Week: Spirit of Zinzan

Date published: January 8 2015

We have come to that time of the week when Planet Rugby brings you all an offering of a stand-out video we think you’ll like the look of. Enjoy the show.

Our recent selections have seen a look back on the history of the Rugby World Cup, a replay of the Barbarians vs Australia match, ITM Cup action, European history and much more selected as we continue to scour the archives.

This week we come across one of rugby’s greatest but often more under-celebrated moments – a drop goal from a forward.

Cruelly for Saracens captain Al Hargreaves this effort against London Irish was disallowed as it came after the whistle, but the execution is sublime as he followed in the footsteps of Zinzan Brooke and many others before.

(We’ve even included Zinzan’s classic just to refresh your memory.)
