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.
