As part of the celebrations of a quarter of a century of rugby in what is now the Heineken Champions Cup, EPCR and Official Partner Tissot continue to give you the chance to vote on the best drop goal since the competition began in 1995.
Featuring some of the best moments of the last 25 years, you can choose from a range of world-class drop goals, with the third coming courtesy of Nick Evans who rescued Harlequins with a 84th minute drop goal in 2008 that somehow split the posts and gave the English side a priceless 19-17 win over Stade Francais Paris.
Evans described the kick as ‘the ugliest drop-goal he has ever landed’ but it didn’t matter one jot, with referee Nigel Owens consulting the TMO just to check the ball had actually sailed over the crossbar.
Once all of the shortlisted events have been revealed, fans will have the chance to vote for their favourite through HeinekenChampionsCup.com, with the winner of each section determined by a combination of the public vote and a panel of experts, whose debate of them will also be carried across EPCR’s digital platforms.
The activation will not only celebrate the relationship between EPCR and its high-quality timing partner but will also showcase some of the moments that have made the Heineken Champions Cup ‘The One to Win’ over the past quarter of a century, with a range of world-class tries, some stunning drop goals and place kicks converted in testing circumstances and with the eyes of the watching world on the kicker.
