Win with Gillette Fusion and Jonny Wilkinson

Win with Gillette Fusion and Jonny Wilkinson

A few weeks back we posted a quick fire questions video with Jonny Wilkinson. Today we've got something similar, but this time around you stand to win great prizes with Gillette Fusion, who Wilkinson is an ambassador for.

As England return to Sydney and the scene of their famous win over Australia in the 2003 World Cup final, coach Martin Johnson has chosen to leave Wilkinson on the bench for the second Test, opting instead for Toby Flood.

This has come as a surprise for many, especially down under, as theyd have thought that the mental edge might have been with the now 31-years-old Wilkinson, who has beaten the Wallabies twice in Australia.

Johnson, who lifted the trophy in 2003, was questioned by Robbie Deans and a few senior Wallaby players for the move, but hes happy with what hes decided on.

"We're very comfortable if Jonny Wilkinson starts a Test match for us obviously, but I think Toby's played very, very well for us and it's part of his experience gathering with playing down here in a big southern hemisphere Test match, and he'll be better for it."

"There's always rationale for playing Jonny Wilkinson, but we like what we've got with Toby and Jonny on the bench," he said.

The World Cup winning flyhalf will be looking for victory this Fathers Day weekend and thanks to Gillette, you can also win by entering Fathers Day promotion where all you need to do to enter is submit your best Daddisms. Check it out below this behind the scenes video.

Some strange comments here. It's a professional game. Why are some surprised that professionals get paid to do promotions and get endorsed etc? Tiger Woods makes (ehem.. made) millions of dollars each year without even hitting a golfball.

I would have thought he'd have started against Aus. I think people expect miracles from him and when he's just good, it's not enough. Is Toby Flood that much better?

Utter bollocks - no rugby, no insights into Wilkinson, just pure blatant advertising.
At least Wilko has the deceny to sound embarrassed.
Less of this kind of pish please!

^ there's a competition involved. Enter and you might win something. There's also an article about Wilkinson's non-selection for you to read. Beggars cant be choosers.

Not the greatest video ever RD, but I can see where you're coming from..
