  2. Shame to see another true Rugby great hang up their international boots. It would of been good to see some sort of testimonial to honour his service for England in the same way Shane Williams recieved at Millenium Stadium but not sure that would of been JW's style as he is a notoriously humble bloke.

    He has been a fantastic player to watch over the years and has been the ultimate professional throughout. With any luck he has inspired a generation of British boys to approach sport with the same attitude.

  3. Agree with Honky Tonk Donk, a great player and from a Newcastle Falcons fan, Thank you for your time at Kingston Park.
  4. It's about time someone put the for-once-uninjured one-trick-pony out to pasture.

  5. My wife was seven months pregnant when we won RWC 2003. Our son was kicking so hard we thought he would appear there and then on that November morning...

    As it happened, he "gained his first cap" the following January, in the same hospital that I believe Jonny Wilkinson was born in - Frimley Park, Surrey.

    The doctor in charge of the delivery, a fanatical Welsh fan, took a clean, two handed "catch" of our son, and said, knowing our love of the game "Oh great, another bl**dy boy to play for you English!"

    Our son's name? Jonny of course!

  6. Just imagine his points haul if he hadn't lost all that time to injury. Hell of a player, hell of a man.

  7. Nasty man, Jonny is a national treasure.
  8. What a legend. Hope he takes up drink and tooting charlie off whores thighs in his retirement. He deserves it, the sober ****.
  9. Imagine just how pissed off Scottish, Welsh and Irish fans would have been, now that is the really sad part. A real loss to the game, unless.........England Manager????

  10. You classless ****.

    Johnny has been a magnificent servant to English Rugby. I don't think many will ever forget the drop goal in 2003.

    As stated, like Shane Williams, both have been great players for their nations.

    Oh, and what the **** is a "Que"?
