Play of the day: Jonny Wilkinson gets smashed

Jonny Wilkinson was on the receiving end of one of the biggest knocks of his career during a French Top 14 game last weekend.

The fly-half was first helped off just after half-time - following this huge tackle by Tongan rugby star Opeti Fonua - in Toulon's 43-21 win over struggling Agen. But he returned soon afterwards to show he was not concussed before going off again to protect a shoulder knock.

The England World Cup winner, who turned down the chance of a Lions tour partly because his body was in 'bits', has a week off before Toulon meet Clermont Auvergne in the Heineken Cup final on May 18 in Dublin.
