Just read Garry Schofield's column in this week's LE.
While talking about the kick that Wellens put in for Makinson's match winning try on Saturday he states;
"It was Andrew Johns who perfected the kick of the side of the boot and it was called the banana kick."
Has history re-written itself here? I remember as a teenager in the mid 80's being amazed by the banana kicks that Deryck Fox used to great effect for Featherstone that lead to countless tries. We used to go to training and try to copy his technique.
Playing with Foxy for GB so many times I thought Schoey might have remembered a few. I seem to remember that Andy Gregory had a banana kick in his box of tricks as well.
No doubt there were banana kick specialists before my time as well. Maybe we should provide Garry with a definitive list
