Wilkinson magic provides dream ending
November 25, 2003
It was reported this week that this tournament was touched by magic, and if anyone was waving a wand it was England's No.10.
A last-gasp drop goal to clinch a World Cup Final victory for England has not only ensured Jonny Wilkinson's place in sporting history but it has catapulted his profile and earning potential into the stratosphere.
The reported £5m-a-year that Wilkinson can now look forward to in deals and endorsements will only be the start and he'd be mad not to take full of advantage while he is on the top of the world along with his England team-mates.
