Springbok Cobus Reinach discovers new cheat code no other No9 could use
If anyone had any doubt that South Africa and Montpellier No9 Cobus Reinach was comfortably that fast scrum-half in the game, he has recently shared a video to remove any lingering doubt.
The 33-year-old posted a video of himself chasing his own box kick, which not only shows his top speed, but his crazy acceleration as well.
Plenty of players have chased a caught their own kick, but they will often have a run up before kicking. A box kick not only means that Reinach had a standing start, but isn’t even facing forwards when he kicked. This wasn’t a short box kick either- it went over 25 metres, which would be fairly decent in a game.
Of course, in a match Reinach would have to contend with a ruck and blockers standing in front of him, meaning it would be pretty hard to pull off. But if there is one player that could, it is definitely the South African.
