I don't come into this section too often, I follow rugby (mainly Tri-Nations but also some Super Rugby), trying to get into it for next season so I'll visit more often. But anyway, I was checking out some videos on YouTube and noticed some insane drop goals by Francois Steyn, the young back from South Africa. Check these out:
Crazy stuff, he can kick the ball a bloody long way, in my searches I also found a video of him kicking from about 5 metres outside his own try line, into the opposition's in-goal area (was against the Brumbies)
First one is the best, he could've taken it 10-20 metres back and it would've still made it.

He sure can kick a drop goal.
I am surprised he hasn't been brought back in to the Springboks squad, seen they don't have any issue playing Northern Hemisphere based players, Butch James and Jean De Villiers for example.
Is he injured or they just not using him?? He'd be a better option that Butch James I reckon. Also a stronger FB than Kirchner.
