Eric Cantona does insane rugby trick shot


eric-cantona

As a true Manchester United fan, I think everything that Eric Cantona does is amazing, but even for people who are a little bit more neutral towards the ex-football star this rugby trick shot is rather impressive. The trick shot came in a “clash of sporting giants” where Marseille (football club) took on Toulon (rugby club) in a game with modified rules for the enjoyment of the French people.

The match, aimed at raising funds for charity featured Manchester United legend Eric Cantona as referee for the first half and then as rugby player for the second for Toulon. The clip shows Sir Eric (now 47 years old) kicking for posts, only to skilfully chip the rugby ball onto the crossbar like you would in footy practice with his normal nonchalant attitude. Pure sporting gold…
