For those who have been fans of Jonny Wilkinson would probably remember the good days when he played on the field.
Many feel that he would surely make a great comeback as a coach or to be part of the coaching team of England. Eddie Jones might be able to make use of his talents and experience. However, club level playing is something that Jonny Wilkinson needs to build upon. It would certainly help him substantiate his talents and experience if he wishes to get on the coaching team of England.
The matter was being discussed as the Six Nations campaign was coming up on February 6th. Wilkinson was being talked about assisting the country’s squad. The forthcoming championship stressed the need to have someone as capable as Jonny to aid Eddie. It is also not to be missed that the final years that Wilkinson spent at Toulon he was a player coach for the team. There was an encounter between Wilkinson and Eddie at Waitrose which might be called as a chance encounter or not so much by others who think that the meeting was planned.
The news is that Jonny Wilkinson has already been visiting Pennyhill Park and his first sessions in skills training have already been conducted. The encounter and meeting between Eddie and Jonny is truly momentous and will surely help England rugby a lot. Many feel that Eddie probably knew the super store that Jonny shopped at and he stopped by there to catch him and to talk to him casually, pitching in the idea of Jonny coming in and helping out in the coaching of the rugby team of England. With an important summer tour to Australia that was lined up, there was a lot at stake and definitely pressure was mounted on Eddie to perform.
