Jonny Wilkinson Was Presented With A UCD Jersey This Week

Jonny Wilkinson Was Presented With A UCD Jersey This Week
By PJ Browne Updated

Toulon enjoyed victory over Clermont in the Heineken Cup final at the Aviva on Saturday and it turns out they've also enjoyed the UCD facilities this week as they prepared for Friday's Top 14 semi-final against Toulouse.

From The Irish Independent:

After training, Wilkinson stayed back and used the peaceful surrounds of the UCD back pitch to hone his kicking as the newly crowned European champions remained in Dublin for the first half of the week after their epic victory over Clermont on Saturday, using UCD's 50m pool for recovery and training on campus. UCD director of rugby Bobby Byrne presented Wilkinson with a College jersey before departure as he headed off in search of a European and domestic double.

Wilkinson is probably lucky that rugby isn't yet at the level of football when it comes to transfer gossip or else rumours of an imminent move to Belfield would be filling column inches.
