Wilkinson is going to spark Englands revival



Flyhalf Jonny Wilkinson, who has not played for England since drop-kicking the winning goal in the 2003 World Cup final, was selected on Monday for Saturday's Calcutta Cup match against Scotland at Twickenham. More worryingly still, he has played precious little rugby of any description since the start of the season, thanks to problems with his knee ligaments and a grisly laceration of his kidney. He has been rewarded with a starting place by new England coach Brian Ashton for the opening round of the Six Nations championship. What do you guys think? Will he be able to come back after being out of it for almost 3 years?
My Prediction? Deja vu...
