Rugby's GREATEST KICKER? | Jonny Wilkinson's Iconic Career



Our latest look back at iconic careers takes us back to arguably the greatest kicker in rugby history and possibly the most famous moment in Rugby World Cup history. To celebrate the anniversary of Jonny Wilkinson’s international debut, we look back at the World Cup career of a true English great. From 1998 to 2011, and a special World Cup Final drop goal against Australia somewhere in the middle.

  1. I like how this channel tries to inflate the English players. Dan Carter is the best fly half. (what's a fly half's role? Playmaker, goal kicker, tactical kicker, defense organization, positional organization, etc) This video seems to only speak about RWC stats, what about the road to the world cup? Maybe if they really wanted to blow Johnny's trumpet it should be titled " RWC's greatest fly half" even then, Carter's record beats Johnny's by virtue of the fact that Carter has 2 world cup medals. Also no reference to the 36-0 game in England's title defense? When it comes to Rugby, no matter how good the English think they are, you pick any of the top 3 Southern Hemisphere teams and your bottoms will be handed to you. Now go drink some tea and ponder on why you ended 5th in the 6 nations while I go watch the 2019 RWC final for sheets and giggles.

  2. NOWWHERE NEAR BEST KICKER EVER ,NOT EVEN CLOSE, HAD NO LONG RANGE,NO WIDE OF THE POST RANGE ,VAST MAJORITY OF HIS KICKS WHERE STRAIGHT IN FRONT OF THE POST DUE TO ENGLAND SCRUM DOMINANCE IN HIS TIME ,THE ONLY THING HE WAS BEST AT 10 WAS TACKLING,BUT WHO WANTS YOUR 10 TO BE THE BEST TACKLER ? ALL IT DID WAS SHORTEN HIS CAREER AND RUIN HIS SHOULDER BECAUSE HE PUT STUPID HITS INTO LOOSE FORWARDS 30 KG HEAVIER THAN HIM,MY OPINION OF HIM …. BEST 10 AS A TACKLER,AVERAGE RUNNER, AVERAGE PASSER, AVERAGE KICKER OUT OF HAND, GOOD CONVERSION /PENALTY KICKER WHO PLAYED IN A DOMINANT FORWARD DRIVEN TEAM WHO AFFORDED HIM MANY EASY PENALTY KICKS.

  3. Greatest kicker in rugby history? Big call! For England – yes! History? Grant Fox, Daniel Carter and Naas Botha especially with Grant Fox and Naas Botha percentages due to accuracy!

  4. I would choose Johnny in my all time 15 above Dan Carter by a short head… imagine what he would do with an All Black back line? He brought such structure to the English play. Best kicker… Naas Botha has to be a strong contender (although terrible defender). He completely controlled and dominated match play with his kicking and it’s a pity the world saw very little of him during SA’s isolation years.

  5. Johnny Wilkinson = In his time on the field yes he was very good & kicked the winning goal for England's only world cup win. but then along came DAN CARTER – highest points scoring No10 the world has ever seen & met, holds the record for Try Conversions won – contributed to TWO RUGBY WORLD CUP GOLD MEDALS. I do not doubt that someone will come along in the future & beat these records So when someone makes sweeping statements like World's greatest Kicker it is NOT the case, as it stands TODAY.
