Go Jonny, Go: Wilkinson seeks Toulon double
As Jonny Wilkinson put it after his second winning Heineken Cup final, the “journey” will soon be someone else’s to travel, and with Sir Clive Woodward excitedly tipping Dan Carter as Toulon’s next fly-half, it was clear the starry French club have no intention of resting on the laurels of back-to-back European titles.
Wilkinson turned his thoughts to Toulon’s next goal of becoming the first French team to complete the domestic-Heineken double in the French Top 14 final against Castres this Saturday, in what will be his last match before retirement.
He said: “What’s been pertinent for me this year is that you play like there’s no tomorrow; every week it’s got to be the best you’ve got. If we have to reshape the team due to some bumps and bruises, that’s how it is, and the joy of having a great squad.”
