George Ford – England Rugby Fly-Half & Samsung Ambassador

The moment before a conversion kick is among the loneliest in rugby. With one half of the crowd praying for a clean strike between the posts, and the other hoping for the ball to fall short, a player needs a cool head and a strong foot. As part of the Samsung School of Rugby, England star George Ford explains how to execute the perfect kick – something that's as challenging mentally as it is physically.

The Samsung School of Rugby brings insight and tips from legends of the English game, such as Martin Johnson and Lawrence Dallaglio, and focuses on key skills of the sport to create tutorials with a twist.
