During the first half of France vs England’s round one match in the Six Nations 2020 the hosts full back Anthony Bouthier sent a clearing kick 85 metres down field in a remarkable move.

The monster boot!

 

In a game built on defence it was first half moves like this one that earned France a memorable win and got them off to winning ways after their shambolic start against Wales last year.
