One of the most accomplished kickers of the ball, Leinster and Ireland star Ian Madigan reveals to viewers the perfect kicking technique.

“Place kicking is a very technical aspect of the game and breaking it down into bite size steps is the best way to master the skill," the rugby star says.

"Sweeping through the ball and keeping your hips as high as possible are some of the steps that I try to focus on.

"Drop kicking is much like place kicking except the ball isn’t static, getting the drop of the ball and retaining composure is the key to success.”
