Jonny Wilkinson takes up coaching role

Former Toulon fly-half Jonny Wilkinson is set to work with the club this week ahead of their Top 14 final with Clermont.

The legendary fly-half finished his career with the French club, winning two European Cups and a Top 14 title during his time at the Stade Mayol.


According to Var-Matin, Wilkinson will link up with the club again this week at the request of owner Mourad Boudjellal, who brought the England Rugby World Cup winner to the club back in 2009.

Wilkinson will work with the club’s goalkickers before Sunday’s final – Anthony Belleau, whose drop goal clinched the semi-final, James O’Connor, Éric Escande and Matt Giteau.

Toulon will be without full-back Leigh Halfpenny for the final, with the Wales full-back having flown out to New Zealand on Monday with the rest of the British and Irish Lions squad.
