I’ve always wondered how rugby players manage to have this incredible technique when it comes to kicking the ball. So, I decided to take up a challenge against Blue Bulls fly half and one of the most decorated kickers in South African rugby Morne Steyn.
I mean, who to better learn from and challenge yourself against than the guy who holds the world record for most points scored by a player who has also scored all their team’s points in a single international match. Steyn also scored more points than anyone else at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
The man is undoubtedly a legend in South African rugby. And having to teach a soccer player to kick a ball was nothing to him.
I have to admit, it was a bit difficult at first, but as soon as I got the hang of it I became a master-kicker.
Here is a little chat I had with him below talking about the difference between kicking a soccer ball and rugby ball.
Steyn is back in South Africa with the Blue Bulls after a long spell at Stade Francais in France.
