Owen Farrell has broken Jonny Wilkinson's record to become England's all-time leading points scorer.

Farrell kicked a penalty in England's World Cup Pool D match against Samoa to reach 1,181 points and surpass Wilkinson's record.

The England captain could have claimed the record earlier in the game but missed his conversion attempt following Ollie Chessum's opening try in Lille.

Wilkinson scored 1,179 points in 91 Tests for England from 1998 to 2011.
