England rugby player Jonny Wilkinson notched up 1000 points for England in his international career at the weekend but it could well be that the 28-year-old is nearly past it. Wilkinson may have passed that landmark points total against Italy but he has copped a lot of flak for his awful performance against Wales a week earlier.
The England fly half handed a try to the Welsh with a shocking pass that would have embarrassed an amateur player.
Wilkinson plays his club rugby for the Newcastle Falcons and has suffered a series of serious injuries in his career.
Knee ligaments, shoulder, kidney and arm injuries have all seen Wilkinson spend time on the surgeon´s table.
Critics of Wilkinson have been citing his lack of ball-running skills as a reason for him to be dropped from the England squad but his excellent place kicking has constantly saved him.
