PROP Goal makes Amateur player an internet star

Jamie Beeney lines up the posts for his drop goal

An Amateur prop forward has become something of an internet sensation after
his drop goal for Hatfield Queen Elizabeth RFC was spotted by a Facebook group
and shared.

Prop forward and amateur player/coach Jamie Beeney, substituted on during the
second half then scored his amazingly cheeky drop goal, worthy of the great
Jonny Wilkinson himself leaving the final score 18-38, and HQE feeling like
they had won their own World Cup despite the scoreline.

A copy of the original video was pulled off Youtube and uploaded to Facebook
where it was been viewed over 35000 times and the number is still growing.

The drop goal happened on a lovely sunny day out for amateurs Hatfield Queen
Elizabeth RFC v St Albans RFC XV at Saracens HQ at Allianz Park on Saturday
the 10th of September.

Beeney is still in shock that his video made it on to the facebook group and
said,”I can’t believe my PROP goal made it onto rugby banter.”

Hatfield Queen Elizabeth started the game very strong in the forwards keeping
the ball close with some great offloading, however counter attacks by from the
St Albans side found them 12 points ahead courtesy of two lucky tries, one of
which was converted.

HQE had chance to regain composure and used the power of the pack to pull back
two tries in response to another by St Albans, leaving the half time score Hatfield
QE 10-19 St Albans.

Being the first game for Hatfield Queen Elizabeth for the new 2015/16 season
and the warm weather, fitness started to take its toll. These boys from “probably
the most social club in the country” take their beers just as seriously
as their rugby! St Albans scored a handful of quick tries to one from the HQE
lads leaving the score at 15-38 with just a few minutes to go.
