Norfolk rugby star Ben Youngs has been demonstrating his kicking skills – to the amazement of his Leicester Tigers and England predecessor Austin Healey.

The Cawston-born scrum-half took on Healey in a 'trick-kick challenge' for BT Sport Rugby ahead of Leicester's European Champions Cup quarter-final against Stade Francais on Sunday.

Healey, who also played scrum-half, became known as 'the Leicester Lip' for his lively personality during a career which saw him capped 51 times by England and twice by the British and Irish Lions.

Former Holt and North Walsham junior Youngs has already surpassed Healey at the age of 26, winning his 57th cap when playing a major part in England winning their first Six Nations grand slam since 2003 last month.
