England GOAT secretly spotted behind the scenes in training camp
England vice captain Ellis Genge gave a behind the scenes guide to England’s training camp last week on the latest episode of o2 Inside Line – The Next Level.
Someone was spotted in the video by some eagle-eyed England fans, none other than Jonny Wilkinson. The former England fly-half was briefly shown in the shadows greeting Genge as the team prepared to move from their Pennyhill Park training base on the Friday.
The World Cup winner was obviously there helping the England team out last week, although some of his advice did not rub off on the team. In a game where England dominated possession and territory, but were seriously lacking in creativity and struggling to score tries, drop goals seemed to be a very good option. Wilkinson knew a thing or two about drop goals, but they aren’t something this England team turn to these days, or many other teams either.
Then again, for Marcus Smith to have Wilkinson and Owen Farrell in camp with him, it will only help the 23-year-old No10.
