Lucky Man

This video from Australia shows that sometimes you need a bit of luck to go your way!

An Australian amateur player took a penalty kick during a game and saw his effort strike the inside of the posts.After seeing his kick hit the posts, the outside-half then saw his effort twice bounce up off the crossbar before hitting the post for a second time.He was eventually left red-faced after seeing his kick fail to go between the sticks, but his blushes were spared in the most bizarre fashion as a team-mate opportunistically pounced to score a try for his side.

A very similar score happened for Premiership side Newcastle in 2013 –

I hope both kickers raced off the pitch to buy lottery tickets!
