This is one of the most bizarre things you’ll ever see in a rugby match

Bizarre Rugby Penalty Kick

The 2011 Rugby World Cup is fast approaching, and while I was looking through some old YouTube videos of the tournament I came across this classic Felipe Contepomi penalty kick, this when he was still playing for Leinster in the Magners League. Take a look at the ball as it goes over the bar, between the posts, goes high into the air and gets blown back where it came from.

Note: The International Rugby Bard rules say that if the ball goes over the bar between the posts, it’s a goal, no matter whether it touches the ground the other side or not.
