Jonny Wilkinson believes that the tough pool of England will only serve to increase their possibilities of winning the World Cup 2019 in Japan.

The team admits that having Argentina and France in the same pool, with the second-best Oceania qualifier and North and South America qualifier mean England have to have a flying start if they are going to win the tournament – the team will have to play a high level of rugby right from the start, which might benefit them as it progresses.

Wilkinson spoke on the behalf of Land Rover and said, “I am certain that it will be called as the ‘Pool of Death’ and this pool is tough-looking, but the team have two years of time until the tournament begin and we will use this time to target the first game.” More »

World Cup winning Coach Sir Clive Woodward is backing English star Owen Farrell to emulate the achievements of Jonny Wilkinson – former England fly-half – or even surpass them and lead the country to glory.


In 1998, Woodward had given Wilkinson his England debut. Wilkinson went on to participate in the World Cup final against Australia where he kicked the winning drop goal for England in 2003.

Under Eddie Jones, Farrell, 25, has been a key player in England’s 16 game winning run where he featured at the inside-centre. This thus allows George Ford to play at fly-half.

Farrell who plays at club level for Saracens as a fly-half won his 50th cap on Sunday against Italy. He is already being compared with 91-time capped Wilkinson by Woodward. More »

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. More »
