Wilkinson praises England's victory over All Blacks
Jonny Wilkinson found time to praise England's victory over the All Blacks a week ago. "That may just be the biggest turning point of the last five years," said Wilkinson, 33, who retired from Test rugby last year.
"I thought it was fantastic with loads to be taken from it. There's a big feet-on-the-ground issue, about not allowing it to become something too huge. An interception try and a couple of others pushed them to a big score. But there's no doubt we deserved to win against a very, very good side.
"It starts with a ruthless defence and a ruthless attacking of the breakdown when you've got the ball and when you're making the tackle. That's what England did, and they were absolutely fabulous. That foundation was incredible which is why it's so exciting. That stuff is repeatable and if we can put that into the next game, and the next game, we won't always need Manu [Tuilagi] to beat five players."
