Why Jonny Wilkinson is actually rubbish ...
June 13, 2013
The series of commercial videos showing Jonny Wilkinson performing some amazing tricks with a rugby ball has proved a big internet success.
Whether kicking into a dustbin from a long distance or booting the ball into a moving car, the skills he has honed through tens of thousands of hours of practice are there for all to marvel at.
But the latest video is one of out-takes where Wilkinsondoesn't quite hit the mark. It's worth a view just to remind yourself that he is not perfect.
Wilkinson is certainly not rubbish … but he is human.
