French halfback hails Wilkinson's form

The French rugby halfback Frederic Michalak has hailed Jonny Wilkinson's performance for Toulon after the England first five scored all his side's points in an 18-13 victory over Toulouse in the French first division.

As the opposing halfback Michelak noted that Wilkinson scored every time Toulon got into their half of the field, and after being plagued by injury for five years, Michelak believes he's back to his best.

Wilkinson landed three penalties and three drop goals as Toulon moved into third place in the French Top 14 championship.
