An Aussie slang for a "torpedo" kick. When kicking am oblong ball (i.e. gridiron ball, rugby ball, Aussie rules ball), it means to have the ball spin along it's longest axis, thus providing fantastic aerodynamics. Plus it looks pretty cool.
(in sports commentators voice) "Oh, a beautiful torpie there bounces into touch."
