Super Rugby Countdown Day 16: Most Penalty Goals in a Match

Some players' boots are more generous than others. Here's a look at the players who've scored the most penalty goals in a single match:

Elton Jantjies (9)


Lions vs Cheetahs

A stellar all-round performance from Elton Jantjies whose boot guided the Lions to a 39-22 victory against the Cheetahs in Johannesburg.

Jannie Kruger (8)


Stormers vs Cheetahs

Dark clouds loom over Stormers' future

Kruger has cemented his place in the all-time records with his 8 penalties against the Cheetahs in March 2006.

Willie Walker (8)


Highlanders vs Chiefs

Highlanders Super Rugby Team | Highlanders Rugby Club Limited Partnership

Flyhalf Willie Walker kicked eight goals from nine attempts to lead the Otago Highlanders to a 29-16 win over the Waikato Chiefs in the first match of the Super12 season that year.

The teams scored a try apiece but Walker's unerring goalkicking, punishing Chief's indiscipline, marked the difference between even sides.

Meyer Bosman (8)

Derick Hougaard (8)


Bulls vs Crusaders

For the Super 14 semi-finals that year, the Sharks then hosted the Blues in Durban, and the Bulls hosted the Crusaders in Pretoria. This was the first time both semi-finals had been hosted in South Africa. The Sharks defeated the Blues 34-18 with three tries to two, and the Bulls, thanks to Derick Hougaard, defeated the Crusaders 27-12 in a try-less match.

Matt Toomua (8)


Rebels vs Brumbies

This clash saw then-skipper Matt To’omua boot eight from eight penalties.

They were locked at 24-24 on the full-time siren when the Brumbies won a penalty inside their own half, with Lonergan stepping up to attempt a kick at an angle and in a swirling breeze, mobbed by his teammates after it dipped over the bar.

A dogged ACT Brumbies battled past the Melbourne Rebels 27-24 to maintain their unbeaten start to the Super Rugby AU that season.
