At the age of twelve, while at Pierrepont School, Frensham, near Farnham, Surrey, Wilkinson told his rugby union master “I want to play for England, that’s all I want”. 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 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.

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. 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. He became a fixture in a side that went on to win the 1997-98 Allied Dunbar Premiership title. 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. Clive 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.

On 3 April 2009 at Guildford Cathedral, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Surrey for services to the sports industry. However, in 1997 he gave up the student life to become a professional rugby union player with the Newcastle Falcons. By March 1998 he was in the full England Test squad. 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). 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. Wilkinson’s try at the start of the second half ensured that, along with his kicking scores, he equalled the Lions’ best individual scoring total in a Test, with 18 points. The Falcons were in Pool 6 in the 2001-02 Heineken Cup, and won one match, finishing fourth in the pool.

On 3 April 2009 at Guildford Cathedral, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Surrey for services to the sports industry.

He also played for the Falcons in their 1999 Tetley’s Bitter Cup final defeat to the London Wasps. Following the quarter-final playoff win against Fiji, Wilkinson was relegated to the bench by head coach for the quarter-final against South Africa. 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.
