Ian Madigan has established himself as a reliable kicker for club and country.
In a video for Life Style Sports, the out-half demonstrates the most important basic techniques of kicking drop goals and penalties.
For drop goals, Madigan says that the 'drop' part of the kick is key. Get that right and you're a long way to the kick being successful. The rest is about sweeping you leg through.
For placed kicks, the Leinster man explained the important of placing the tee and the ball correctly and then getting his angles right in terms of approaching the kick.
