Round-up: Wilkinson's deadly boot sends Munster out

Rugby round-up: Cipriani helps Rebels further their cause in victory over Tonga

In Australia yesterday, Danny Cipriani started for the Melbourne Rebels in their first game, against Tonga in a warm-up for the Super 15. The sometime Wasps and England fly-half played the first half of a match that was won by the Rebels, 43-13, after they had been 13-12 down at the break. Cipriani was seen to apply ice to his knee after leaving the field.

High Kicks and Low Life: Toulouse-Lautrec

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec has been described by a contemporary critic as, ‘the quintessential chronicler of Paris’. The work of the artist (1864-1901) immediately evokes the decadent atmosphere of fin-de siècle Paris. And a touch of gay Paree might well rub off on Bedford next month when the British Museum Tour of his work arrives at Bedford Gallery.

Wilkinson fit to resume Top 14 duties

Wilkinson's form wins over arch rival

Jonny Wilkinson, an even-money shot to return to England's starting line-up when the All Blacks visit Twickenham in a little over five weeks' time, must be doing something right if the man once revered by the French as the "anti-Wilkinson" rates him the best outside-half around. Frédéric Michalak, who began his Test career playing the flawed genius to Wilkinson's flawless robot, believes his old rival is on the verge of delivering something special for his country this autumn.
