Jonny Wilkinson hit knocks out Jonathan Thomas

Jonny Wilkinson hit knocks out Jonathan Thomas

Just twelve minutes into England's clash with Wales at Twickenham on Saturday, Welsh flanker Jonathan Thomas felt the full brunt of Jonny Wilkinsons notoriously brutish defense.

It's not vintage Wilkinson when compared with his cracking tackles on the likes of Justin Bishop or Emilie Ntamack, but highly effective and painful, as I'm sure Jonathan Thomas will testify. Falling to the floor and hitting his head hard, with players' legs bashing him also didn't help of course.

There was no malice involved in the tackle. It was simply a good, solid, hit and it was unfortunate to see Thomas go down like that. Some may say it was a bit of a swinging arm, but I can't see much fault in it.

Once again though, Wilkinson proves that he must be the hardest tackling flyhalf in the game today.
