Wilkinson extends contract with Toulon in Top14

Former England flyhalf Jonny Wilkinson has extended his contract with Top14 Rugby Club Toulon in France for one more year just days after he retired from international rugby.

The 32-year old Wilkinson, who announced his retirement from international rugby on Monday, took up the option for an additional year written into his Toulon contract when he signed two years ago, the club said on its website.

He was one of Toulon’s best players in Tuesday’s 34-12 win over Agen, setting up a try for backrower Jone Tawake.

Wilkinson, England’s World Cup-winning flyhalf in 2003, established himself as one of the greatest kickers in the sport’s history during a stellar 13-year test career.

He scored 1,246 test points – second only to New Zealand No. 10 Dan Carter – in 91 tests with England and six with the British and Irish Lions.
