Eben Etzebeth reveals surprising new skill that he has learnt while there is no rugby on and fans love it
South African rugby star Eben Etzebeth hasn’t been able to play pro rugby since the end of February, but he certainly hasn’t done nothing. Eben Etzebeth learnt an incredible new skill today.
The Springbok star posted a video on his social media today revealing a new skill that he has learnt during the lockdown. Kicking!
World Cup Winner Eben Etzebeth appears to be settling in well with Toulon as he made his move to France on a highly lucrative deal.
The South African lock who is 6’6 and weighs 125kg, has settled well into life in Toulon.
The video shows Eben Etzebeth slotting a dropkick in his back yard, a skill which you would not associate with the 28-year-old who is known for his strong carries and kicking on the ball.
Fans of Etzebeth were loving the new skill that he had learnt!

Springbok teammate Elton Jantjies said, “Haha top ebie ✊✊✊ … will strike him even faster”.
Etzebeth is full of surprises with rugby fans. On his debut for Toulon he showed a surprising turn of pace to score an incredible try.
Imagine how terrifying that must have been to see that kind of speed coming at you in a match!
Eben Etzebeth would earn his ferocious reputation as one of the most terrifying men in rugby on this day.
6ft 7 lock Eben Etzebeth has made a name for himself in the sport as a hard-hitting man who will fight absolutely anyone, even the ref.
Eben Etzebeth has a certain reputation on the rugby pitch, and this video showcases exactly that. It was not long ago that Etzebeth was being considered as captain for the Springboks but now that Kolisi has taken that mantle, it appears that Etzebeth will not reign in that feisty anger of this. We love Etzebeth and the new skill that he learnt in rugby!
