Rugby star Wilkinson backs French Ryder Cup campaign

England rugby star Jonny Wilkinson has lent his support to France's bid to host the 2018 Ryder Cup.

Wilkinson, who now plays for French outfit Toulon, is England's all-time leading points scorer and is now making waves across the English Channel.

And to ingratiate himself even further with the locals, the 31-year-old has backed the country's campaign to stage the Ryder Cup in seven years time.

The fly-half often puts on his golf clothing to enjoy a round in his spare time, and he explained why he wants France to host the tournament.

"I feel part of a big movement here at Toulon and furthermore am honoured at the warmth of the reception I have received right across France," he commented.

"With the 2018 Ryder Cup set to take place on mainland Europe I am delighted to get behind France's bid to host the Ryder Cup in 2018."
