Jonny Wilkinson solid hit against Montauban

Jonny Wilkinson solid hit against Montauban

For some reason we've had a few Top 14 clips in a row here on Rugbydump over the past few days. That's the way it goes sometimes, despite things usually being more of a mix.

This short clip was requested though, so while other clips are being compiled and prepared, this may be of interest to English and Toulon fans around the world.

Incidentally, if you feel that your favourite team isn't getting enough coverage here on RD, please do get involved with contributions and we'll definitely check out your clips, and probably post them on the site.

Jonny Wilkinson scored eight points as his side beat Montauban 18-7 at home as they moved into the top six of the Top 14 in France.

England will be happy to hear that Wilkinson's fitness isn't a concern ahead of the upcoming Six Nations. He limped off a week ago against Clermont, complaining of back pains.

In this latest match he was back to his old form though, managing to put in a trademark hit on flanker Abdel Boutaty, albeit with a bit of assistance from Mafileo Kefu.

Wilkinson will arrive in England on Thursday, as his side will play Toulon in the Amlin Challenge Cup. Keep a lookout early next week for another one of lock Ross Skeate's fascinating diary entries, exclusive to Rugbydump.

^I totally agree, it's wilko's mate who makes the hit. Still a great tackle.
Wilko's playing very well at the moment!

Um...that's pretty clearly a 10 on the jersey, it's Wilkinson making that hit...

If you look closely you'll see the runner bouncing off and up slightly before Wilkinson even makes contact. Watch the man next to Wilkinson closely, he initiates the hit.

It's been acknowleged as being a bit of both guys. 'In this latest match he was back to his old form though, managing to put in a trademark hit on flanker Abdel Boutaty, albeit with a bit of assistance from Mafileo Kefu.'

I do feel Wilkinson made the hit though, even if the other guy did make contact at the same time or first. Yes Geordie, he looks the bizniz at the moment.

Jacob is either jealous or blind. If anything, The Wilk made contact first!

I'm neither thanks Lance. It's a 50/50 call.

"Watch the man next to Wilkinson closely, he initiates the hit."

I watched it a few more times, and the other player certainly makes contact, but it's more like he pushes Montauban into Wilkinson's tackle.

I think JW actually put the majority of the contact in. Absolutely nailed him. And he's half his size.

Kefu has never been a big tackler, it's clear who the hit is by

Mafi Kefu is not a big tackler ?

LOL !

Are you kidding ?

yawn more wilko hype, he lined him up and two of them made the average hit.
but the player gets back up when held, that is a penalty but never gets penalised teams always use it to get time for support to come. i wish refs were quicker on this!

"Kefu has never been a big tackler, it's clear who the hit is by"

You are one big bunch of retards, it's clear Johnny doesn't hit the shoulder, it's his mate who makes nthe hit anf then Johnny grabs the guy's legs to make him fall!
