Gilbert Golden Boot

Gilbert Golden Boot

When it comes to the crunch in Aviva Premiership Rugby, it is often the goal kickers that make all the difference. They have huge pressure on their shoulders – their attempts at goal can be the difference between victory and defeat.

But with the glory of a successful kick comes the extra bonus – moving up the Gilbert Golden Boot standings. The Golden Boot is awarded to the highest scoring kicker in Aviva Premiership Rugby, and has been won by some major names.

Last years’ winner Jimmy Gopperth helped take his Wasps all the way to the Premiership Rugby Final, while other former winners include England star George Ford, Australian legend Michael Lynagh and Gareth Steenson.

The race for the boot is well underway…
