Buddhism helps Jonny find new rugby perspective

1:16 pm on 22 November 2008

Buddhism has brought Jonny Wilkinson to the point of believing a return to the England rugby team is no longer high on his priority list.

The man who steered England to its 2003 world cup success has been ruled out of upcoming England internationals with a dislocated knee.

The injury-plagued 29-year-old has looked for help in Buddhism and believes his new spiritual outlook has given him a different perspective on his life and career.
