Inside England with Wilkinson
Around the Academy:

Jonny Wilkinson is one of the world's most naturally gifted rugby players.

He proved it once again by scoring all 15 points for England as they beat New Zealand on their own soil for the first time in 30 years.

Thanks to his trusty left foot, the Newcastle Falcons and England fly-half has become one of the best goalkickers the sport has ever seen.

He became England's all time leading points scorer, smashing his Newcastle coach Rob Andrew's record of 396, aged only 21.

He has become a permanent fixture in Clive Woodward's side ever since making his debut for England in 1998.

And he was also a crucial member of the Lions squad that toured Australia in 2001.

Jonny played a pivotal role in England's Grand Slam triumph, and scored 15 points in his man-of-the-match display against Ireland.

He talks exclusively to the Academy about life with England, his role in the team and exactly who is the funniest member of the squad.
