Wilko prefers the Alred way

Wilkinson pays kicking guru Alred out of his own pocket
"Jonny Wilkinson booked himself a private goalkicking lesson at Twickenham on Thursday and paid for it out of his own pocket.

As a further sign of his refusal to leave anything to chance, England's matchwinning fly half arranged a two-hour session at his own expense with one of the three specialist coaches the RFU dismissed after their protracted inquest into last season's failed Six Nations' campaign.

Dave Alred, England's World Cup kicking coach whose work with Wilkinson used to be part of his full-time job with the RFU over a six-year period, has been retained by the player since losing his job at the end of last season."
