’Leigh Halfpenny’s accuracy is as inevitable as death and taxes’
‘Leigh Halfpenny’s nomination for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year is the icing on quite a remarkable year for the Welsh rugby union star.’
Leigh Halfpenny gave Warren Gatland a massive boost ahead of the autumn internationals by making a solid debut for Toulon tonight – but he was unable to prevent the reigning champions being defeated 21-10 at Toulouse in the French Top 14.
But the Man of the Match was Leigh Halfpenny, and rightly so. He looks as good a bet as any for a spot on the British & Irish Lions tour in the summer and he put in another huge showing at fullback. The conditions meant that decision making was paramount and he very rarely put a foot wrong.
