This is some basic info about the man Back-row Mark Wilson joined the Falcons full-time in the summer of 2010. A former student at Northumbria University, Cumbrian Wilson played his first rugby for local club Kendal, before making the move across the Pennines. A captain of England Students in the 2009-10 season, Wilson made three appearances for the Falcons that season in the LV= Cup, having been loaned from Blaydon. After a fantastic first full season at Kingston Park in which he made 29 appearances, the South Cumbrian won the Academy Player of the Season award.In July 2016, Wilson signed a four-year deal with Newcastle Falcons, committing to the side until the 2019-20 season.In May 2017 he was invited to a training camp with the senior England squad by Eddie Jones and made his debut in the 1st summer test against Argentina.As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Wilson has had 34 European Cups appearances scoring 10 tries.   source 

So The above is some stats about the man.


The way I see it, stats can only go so far.

Dickyg feels the Falcons really miss him [and Will Welch] when we are playing in the Prem and he is away with England.

He is right and it shows that he is not there. That doesn't mean I don't think we have other players capable of doing a great job.

My personal view is that he is part of our fixtures and fittings and it feels so much more like a Falcons team when he is in the side.


Does anyone have any more info about him or stories about him which you would like to share here.
