Two world greats paying tribute to a legend? Here is the perfect video for the rugby die-hard!
Just before Jonny Wilkinson plays the last game of his career on Saturday for Toulon in the Top 14 final, two world-class performers open up about how inspirational he was and still is.
Talking via the Rugby Site, fellow fly-half Dan Carter, the only player to have scored more international points than Jonny, holds high respect for the English great, “You influence a lot of people around the world.” and says that he will be “sorely missed.”
Richie McCaw, added, “you’ll go down as one of the greats of world rugby.”
England tour New Zealand and face McCaw this June. Read all about how England have prepared in the July edition of Rugby World, on sale from June 3.
