Rugby World Cup Fever

Unknown Artist - Jonny Wilkinson waxwork in Trafalgar Square (19/10/07) enhanced photoRugby World Cup fever has hit England, and here's the proof. Yesterday a waxwork of England's star player Jonny Wilkinson appeared on the spare plinth in Trafalgar Square. It's an excellent likeness depicting a characteristic pre-kick stance and shows far more artistic talent than Schutte's abstract, which is due to occupy the plinth from 7 November for 18 months (CLICK). I've cropped, tidied and enhanced a photo by Stefan Rousseau. To see the original, click the title link. England meet South Africa in the World Cup final in Paris later today. Good luck, lads.
