The first World Cup in the professional era, the 1999 World Cup was held in England, France, Scotland and Ireland and saw England crash out once again to an individual. Because if Jonah Lomu did for them in South Africa, this time it was the South African Jannie De Beer who sent them packing in Paris with a quite incredible (and record) five drop goals and haul of 34 points in the Boks 44-21 win in the quarter-final. The Australians must have been watching because they effectively shut him down in the semi, only allowing him a single drop. And how did the Aussies seal their victory? With a drop goal of their own. De Beer would never play for his country again.
