    Default Christmas Quiz - Drop Goals

    Or field goals as they call them these days.

    Many are the same as place kickers, which were:-

    Bishop, Forber, Ropati, Lyon, Martyn, Goulding, Long, Wellens, Sculthorpe, Smith, Eastmond, Gaskell, Lomax, Walsh, Turner, Richardson, Roby, Coote and Makinson.

    So to make it a little trickier (and shorter).....

    There are 11 players in the last 30 years who have kicked a drop goal, but never successfully kicked a penalty goal or conversion.

    Can we name them?

    I remember Nick Fozzard doing something in training (a cross bar challenge or something), but I don't think he ever dropped a goal.

    ...But this isn't about players who didn't drop goals.

    Paul Forber did kick a drop goal but also kicked a two pointer too. Bernard Dwyer kicked plenty of goals, but never a drop goal.

    I remember them well, Jonny Neil popped one over against Widnes on New Years Day 1994 at home much to the pops amusement.. Ian Pickavance scraped one over in a draw at Wigan in the CC in 1995...what do you mean saddo for remembering that?

    I've got a vague recollection of Scott Moore kicking one but he may have kicked conversions also..

    Paul Groves? I'm thinking of playmakers scrum halves /hookers. I don't know if he kicked goals though? I'm sure he kicked DGs
