    You'd also have to say that after his nightmare run with injuries, all the work he put in getting back on the pitch paid off. Dude never gave up.

    Went to lunch with Brian Moore recently (ex-Eng hooker)

    He was adamant that Wilkinson is carrying an injury that should've ruled him out of the WC but as his career would basically be over if that happened, he's bitten the bullet and playing at 50%

    No doubt about his courage

    It's entirely possible; a surgeon said the normal recovery time for the sort of ankle ligament damage Jonny suffered before the US game was about 6 weeks usually, Jonny was back in about a fortnight. Even allowing for Jonny being a supposedly "quick healer" that's bordering on the superhuman.

    &, hate to pry, but how to you know Pitbull? Something of a boyhood hero of mine. He still work as a solicitor nowadays?
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
    - The Guardian's Andrew Anthony

    If you think that England would be in the final without Wilkinson at 10... you must be in dreamland.
