Former England international Will Greenwood may be onto a new trend for kicking dropped goals in rugby.

The World Cup-winning centre posted a video on Twitter of an 'unmissable' way to take a dropped goal.

The style mimics field goal attempts in American football where another player catches the ball and holds it for the kicker.

In the video Greenwood claims it's a legal dropped goal attempt if the holder drops the ball backwards, as it wouldn't be deemed a knock-on.


Greenwood's England teammate Jonny Wilkinson kicked a dropped goal in the 2003 Rugby World Cup final to secure a dramatic extra-time win over Australia in Sydney.
