Breakfast With Jonny Wilkinson review

Not quite a full meal

Remember when England won the Rugby World Cup?

Simon Sprackling’s ramshackle but amiable adap of Chris England’s stage comedy revisits that morning via a provincial club’s bar, where punters gather to watch the big match.

With its broadly drawn characters and a far-fetched story, there’s no disguising the material’s roots.

Instead, Sprackling trusts to the author’s droll one-liners about sporting sub-cultures, and a cast led by Four Lions ’ Nigel Lindsay, to deliver a stage-to-screen Brit-com that retains its charm.
