Graham Henry on Carter: He’s up among the greatest first five eighths of all time. He is a very intelligent rugby player with high personal standards. He’s the All Blacks navigator. Richie McCaw on Carter: He has the time to make it look easy even when he is making decisions on the hop. He runs the game for us and does it with so much poise that his confidence lifts the players around him.

Awesome tips from the man

New Zealand

Spledid and I learn a lot from your website..


Very good


Hi Dan I’ve seen a lot of your kicking tutorials and I’ve noticed 1 key element that is similar with all your videos including this one……Your foot movement up to just prior to the contact between boot & ball. I feel as though this is a secret recipe as I have never managed to find it in any of your videos. Q – Could this be the major “war winner” to the whole process?

Thank you

New Zealand

Great video, will defs learn and practice from


Hi Dan, In this drop kicking instructional clips your head is down when you make your kicks, you don’t mention this as part of the kicking motion. Is keeping your head down important to proper form while kicking the ball?


Very Good

Good video. I would like to see a little more about aiming the kick. How is the body positioned (in approach then follow thru) in relation to where you want the ball to end up.
