Hougaard's kicking overshadows Wilkinson

Jonny Wilkinson made his first club appearance on English soil since his move to French side Toulon on Thursday but found himself overshadowed by South African fly-half Derrick Hougaard.

Toulon were defeated 28-9 by Saracens in the European Challenge Cup with Hougaard kicking six penalties and a conversion of Justin
Melck’s try.

Wilkinson scored all of his team’s nine points with two penalties and a drop goal.

“Jonny did well. He was very good in defence. It was a difficult situation. The pitch was quite heavy and it was not a very high level game. He had a solid performance,” said Toulon coach Philippe Saint Andre.—Sapa-AFP
