Watch: Will Genia’s Hilarious Impersonation Of Wilkinson’s Kicking Style Is Spot On

Preparing for his team’s clash with England, Australia star Will Genia decided to impersonate England great Jonny Wilkinson’s famous kicking style.

Standing around 35 metres out, his face a picture of concentration and with the trademark clenched hands and slight crouch, the 86-cap star nails the kick and runs back in Wilkinson-esque style, evoking memories of Wilkinson’s 1,000 plus Test points with the boot.

Wallabies skipper Michael Hooper’s command to pick up the tee only adds to the mirth.

Whilst also maybe making Australian fans break out in a cold sweat after the former Newcastle and Toulon star’s famous extra-time drop goal in the 2003 World Cup final broke Aussie hearts and handed England a first ever World Cup.

Genia and his teammates will be hoping to end a four-match losing streak against England, having failed to beat their traditional rival since dumping them out of the World Cup in 2015 while they will also be looking to extend an impressive seven-match unbeaten run, which included a thrilling 23-18 win over the All Blacks last month.
