Wilkinson return hits further delay
12 January 2006 15:40pm
Jonny Wilkinson's hopes of a return from groin surgery appear to have been dashed for another week.
"Jonny has trained this week and he is getting there," said Newcastle rugby director Rob Andrew.
"But the more I say on the subject, the less chance he seems to have of playing. So this week, I will just keep my mouth shut and let him get on with it."
Fly-half Wilkinson has not played since mid-November, while his last England appearance came in the 2003 World Cup final before a series of injury setbacks put him out of the international picture.
