The greatest 10 of all time.
Today, 16 years on, Jonny Wilkinson’s drop for World Cup glory remains the greatest moment in the history of the Rugby World Cup. The iconic kick, stuck with his weaker right foot, in the final seconds of extra time clinched a famous 20-17 victory for England against Australia during the final in Sydney in 2003.
Jonny played club rugby for twelve seasons in the English Premiership with Newcastle Falcons. In 2009 he moved to Toulon, where he won two Heineken Cups and one Top 14 championship in five seasons.
He came back from several injuries and was part of the England team which reached the final of the 2007 World Cup. He toured twice with the British and Irish Lions, in 2001 to Australia and 2005 to New Zealand, winning 6 caps.
Where is he now?
