Jonny Wilkinson : England vs Wales Rugby Match

I watched the England vs Wales Rugby match last week and was shocked to see Jonny Wilkinson miss so many penalty kicks!

No ones perfect, but he missed three penalties with a couple being well within his ussual scoring range, what happened!

England won the Rubby match, but the play was not dynamic, it was another kicking game where the ball spends more time in the air than in the hands of rugby players! Not very exciting for the viewers.

Interesting stats:

Jonny Wilkinson passed the ball for England 5 times yet he kicked 14 times against Wales. He did not make one pass in the final 38 minutes as England defended a healthy lead!

Danny Care, was England's tactical man making 38 passes with 15 of them to his outside-half as he used his forwards to attack the gainline.

England will need to play better against some of the harder rugby teams.
