Jonny Wilkinson injured again

Recommended Posts

he could have retired after the world cup and lived happily ever after

 

 

When he was never injured?

 

 

 

Aye, great plan.

Why would he have chosen to retire as a 24-year-old at the height of his powers?

 

Because he's riddled with injuries?

 

Not straight after the WC he wasn't. He would have been mental to retire at 24 at that stage of his career. He's had an awful time of it though. He should just take a year out of the game to recover and try and make a comeback. If he breaks down again he should probably be thinking about calling it a day. What's the money like in rugby? Is he likely to be set for life?

Shit, you mean I can't even do a comedy misspelling of "the"? :nono:

He's supposed to be pretty much the dullest man alive, isn't he? My sister's friend knows him and reckons when they have parties or whatever, all the lads will be going daft enjoying themselves and Wilkinson is the one you'll find in the kitchen talking to the mother.

 

Mind, given that we're talking about rugby lads here, it's maybe just an indication that he's not a total bellend.

Eh? He got injured more or less straight after the WC final.

Wasnt he half injured in the final. Whatever though it would have been stupid to retire at 24.

He ended the final with the injury that he subsequently found would put him out for a long while. Since then he's just had NUFC-like luck with injuries and illness including shoulder, neck, both knees, apendix to name but a few ailments.

 

But he'd be mad to retire for many reasons. Firstly he's young, was one of the best players in the world, and the best kicker in the game and he absolutely lives for playggn rugby as mentioned above in that he's percieved as being boring (like Shearer!).

 

Until this current injury it had looked to be over, he ended lasts eason fit, had a pre-season that went well and was apparently looking good and throwing himself into tackles like he used to. So i think he'll definitely keep going.

That's part of the problem tbh. He never shys away from putting a hit on one of the big beasts. He's braver than his body realistically allows him to be.

That gave him the "stinger injury" that caused him problems, but really the other injuries are nothign to do with his amazing tackling ability, he's just had terrible luck picking up about 3 kne injuries, groin/thigh problems (i think) and then random things like a burst appendix and the like!

 

There's obviously a risk when you tackle like he does, but he did it for years without getting an injury directly from it and so i think he's right to keep playing as he does until he seems to regularly suffer injuries directly relating to those tackles.

 

This recent injury is terrible though as it looked like he'd turned the corner and would be back for England for the autumn internationals.

Hes rugbys woodgate tbh. May as well give it up before he keels ower one game!

 

To be fair, unlike Woodgate he was pretty much alwasy fit and in top form until the world cup injury after which he's had a disasterous run.

 

Because it's not one long term thing happening over and over and is just a freakish run of incredibly bad luck with injuries, illness and the like i think he has to keep trying because if he can get a run of games going he will soon be back to fitness and form and can then hopefully avoid such a random collection of mishaps.

 

But if it does just keep happenign then he will know himself when to decide to say that's it and give up, but i really hope that doesn't happen. The Falcons need him and England certainly do, when it comes to pressure kicking to win games when it counts Charlie Hodgson isn't even close to good enough and England always need that level of kicking.

A friend of mine knows one of his mates. Apparently Wilkinson's mates loves it when he goes out with them, because all the girls flock to him, then realise how dull he is and get picked up by his mates instead!

 

Most Rugby players are complete and utter ringpieces, I'll give you that one.
