Mango kicking challenge

Matty Bowen may have retired but he proved he still has the magic touch - after kicking a ball into a basketball hoop from around 100 feet away!

The former Wigan full-back stunned his Instagram followers with a video of his kicking wizardry.

He punted the ball from one side of a basketball court and celebrated as it dropped through the hoop.

When people asked how many takes he needed, he replied: "Only one."

Former Queensland Origin ace Bowen, nicknamed 'Mango', spent two years at Wigan from 2014-15.

The social media clip was to launch the 'Mango kicking challenge' in which he invited others to post videos of their skills.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
