Cork Con Player Lands One Of The Longest Penalties You'll Ever See

Cork Con Player Lands One Of The Longest Penalties You'll Ever See

Cork Constitution's George Coomber landed an enormous penalty against Ballynahinch RFC in the AIL on Saturday.

The kick was taken just on the stroke of half-time, and was landed from just in front of Coomber's own ten metre line, from an acute angle about four metres in from the touchline.

We don't have an official number for just how far the kick was, but given the angle, it looks to be at least 65 metres.

Coomber togged out for UCC last season, but made the move to their Cork rivals this year. He also represented the Ireland U20s during their Summer Series campaign in Italy.

Cork Con won the game 13-20, with the win bringing them up to third place in AIL Division 1A, while Ballynahinch remain in sixth.

Huge Penalty From Cork Con's George Coomber In AIL Clash

Fans on social media were likening it to some of huge long-range penalties of Francois Steyn and Jordan Hendrikse. The kick was taken during absolutely diabolical conditions but the severe wind surely helped the kick on its journey over the posts.

Coomber has been lighting up the AIL this season. The Ireland U20 international also scored this brilliant try against Lansdowne two weeks ago. The fullback was a part of Richie Murphy's U20s squad the shone in France during the summer.
