Jonny Wilkinson joins French club Toulon

Video by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2009-05-19

England flyhalf Jonny Wilkinson has signed with Toulon, the French club announced on its website on Monday. The injury-prone World Cup hero, who will turn 30 on Monday, joins the club from the Newcastle Falcons.

REUTERS - England flyhalf Jonny Wilkinson has joined Toulon from the Newcastle Falcons, the French club said on its website (www.rctoulon.com) on Monday.

Wilkinson, 29, has suffered a succession of injuries since kicking the winning drop goal for England against Australia in the 2003 World Cup final.

He has been sidelined for five months after dislocating his left kneecap during a game with his club.

Toulon have already signed Argentina flyhalf Felipe Contepomi for next season, when they will be coached by former France international Philippe Saint-Andre.

Club president Mourad Boudjellal has attracted several internationals, including South Africa lock Victor Matfield and former Australia scrumhalf George Gregan, for short spells at the club in recent years.

Former New Zealand captain Tana Umaga coaches Toulon's backs.
