Jonny Wilkinson last night survived his first international match since kicking England to victory in the World Cup final in November 2003 and was, yet again, the man to turn to in a crisis. The England fly-half played for the full 80 minutes of the British and Irish Lions' 25-25 draw with Argentina in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, levelling the score with the last kick of the game. Wilkinson was one of the Lions' best players during a difficult match dominated for large periods by the Pumas' powerful forwards. He capped his comeback after 18 months marred by a series of injuries by kicking 20 points and looked positive in open play
