Jonathan Peter “Jonny” Wilkinson OBE (born 25 May 1979 in Frimley, Surrey) is an English rugby union player and former member of the England national team. Wilkinson has also toured twice with the British and Irish Lions, in 2001 to Australia and 2005 to New Zealand, scoring 67 Test points in the 6 Lions test matches he has started. 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. Wilkinson returned to domestic duties by taking over from Rob Andrew, who was made Falcons head coach (later Director of Rugby), as both their fly-half and goal kicker. Wilkinson played for England in matches against Australia, the United States and Canada as the 1999 Rugby World Cup approached. He was then capped another three times for England during the end of year internationals. 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.

He then came back from several injuries to lead England to the final of the 2007 world cup. He announced his retirement from international rugby union in early December 2011. From Pierrepont, he moved to Lord Wandsworth College, Hampshire, where he took A-levels in French, Biology and Chemistry and gained a place at the University of Durham. Wilkinson started his career at Newcastle School of Rugby as an inside centre, competing for a place with international veterans such as Inga Tuigamala, and British Lion Alan Tait. Wilkinson played for England in matches against Australia, the United States and Canada as the 1999 Rugby World Cup approached. After playing another pool game against the All Blacks, which England lost 30-16, he was rested against Tonga, a match won by England 101-10. The following year Wilkinson played in all five of England’s 2000 Six Nations Championship matches.

He then participated in England’s ‘Tour of Hell’ in June 1998 that saw them suffer heavy defeats to both New Zealand and Australia (who defeated them 76-0). After playing another pool game against the All Blacks, which England lost 30-16, he was rested against Tonga, a match won by England 101-10. The Falcons were in Pool 6 in the 2001-02 Heineken Cup, and won one match, finishing fourth in the pool. For the game against Italy, Wilkinson was chosen as the captain of the squad for the first time in his England career, as Martin Johnson was unavailable due to the birth of his first child. England’s first match at the 2003 World Cup was at Subiaco Oval in Perth, where they defeated Georgia 84-6, with Wilkinson scoring 16 points from his goal kicking. He played a major role in the pool match against the Springboks, in which he scored 20 of England’s 25 points, in the victory which held their opponents to just six. England won 24-7, with Wilkinson scoring all of England’s points through his kicking.

Wilkinson began his international career as an unused replacement against Scotland, before coming off the bench, replacing Mike Catt, to play on the wing against Ireland at Twickenham on 4 April 1998; he was only 18. Wilkinson became a fixture in the England team, and started in all their matches in the 1999 Five Nations. Woodward refused to expand on his selection choice at the time, and following the match some commentators blamed the head coach’s lack of consistency in team selection as harming England’s World Cup bid. England won the championship, however they missed a grand slam after losing their final match against Scotland.
