Mark Wilson took only four seasons as a professional player to reach 100 games for Newcastle Falcons after joining the club in 2010 from Kendal, where he spent his formative years. He was educated at Kirkbie Kendal School before taking a degree in sports science at Northumbria University and captaining England Students in 2009/10. He made 30 Falcons appearances in 2012/13 and won the Ken Lockerbie Trophy as the club’s most consistent player. Kendal born, he has figured in 112 Premiership matches and scored 13 tries, including six since early December. In 2015/16, he topped the competition’s tackle statistics, having played for the England XV against the Barbarians two years ago. He also played off the bench in the corresponding match last month which the England side won 28-14 and made a fine Test debut against Argentina at San Juan this June.
