The Celebration Of This Match-Winning Drop Goal Will Restore Your Faith In Sport

This is the last play of the game between Auckland Grammar and St Peter's College in the white-hot environment of Auckland schools rugby.

The DG itself is a fine example of pressure kicking from the young lad, but the unconfined joy and complete disregard of safety that resulted is rather wonderful.

Supporting your school this fervently is a bit excessive, but the hope that we might feel like these lads now and again is what keeps us coming back to sport, no matter how often it might treat us like the St Peter's boys on the other side of the field.
