Wilkinson rose to acclaim from 2001 to 2003, before and during the 2003 Rugby World Cup and was acknowledged as one of the world’s best rugby union players. He announced his retirement from international rugby union in early December 2011. However, in 1997 he gave up the student life to become a professional rugby union player with the Newcastle Falcons. He became a fixture in a side that went on to win the 1997-98 Allied Dunbar Premiership title. England won the championship, however they missed a Grand Slam after losing their final match against Scotland. More success followed for Wilkinson after the Six Nations, as the Falcons won the Powergen Cup: a late Newcastle try saw them defeat Harlequin F.C. by three points, by 30-27. During the match, Wilkinson injured his leg and was stretchered off the pitch.
