England legend Jonny Wilkinson shows a young Owen Farrell he was still the top dog back in 2013.
Toulon won 24-12 at Twickenham in 2013, booking their place in the final of the Champions Cup.
Wilkinson was a clear winner in the battle of the boot, as he kicked seven penalties and an excellent drop-goal to get the better of young Owen Farrell.
One fan commented: “Wilko such a class act, he was probably the most loved English player outside of England.”
“What a nice touch of humility and class, consoling the younger fly half – you would never see anything like this from a footballer,” another added.
A third commented: “Possibly one of the best moments in World Rugby, 2 of the worlds greatest ever fly halfs, humble Wilkinson vs arrogant Farrell that image of them both looking at the ball as it flew over the posts is iconic!”
