England drop Wilkinson for France match

18/03/2010 08:11:47 AM Comments (0)

England have dropped Jonny Wilkinson from their starting side to play France in the Six Nations international in Paris on Saturday.

The World Cup winning five-eighth paid the price for failing to spark England's backs in their lacklustre 15-15 draw away to Scotland last weekend.

Wilkinson's place has been taken by former Newcastle understudy Toby Flood.

It was only the third time in his 77-cap career for England that Wilkinson, rugby union's record international points scorer, had been dropped when fit.
