Significant number of back row players on the bench though.

Good luck to Mark, its fully deserved and I just hope he gets on the pitch with enough time to show his talents.

3 according to their club profiles. No locks though, unless you see Mark as a utility player.....

Plenty of game time. Did nothing wrong and plenty right. A typical 'unsung hero' performance.

Made a few good carries, a few vital tackle and a great turnover. Couldn't have done anything else to stake his place. Very proud.

Good game by Mark, did what he has been doing for the Falcons but in the England shirt.

Let's just hope Tom Wood gets banned and he gets the nod to replace him, sorry Tom!

I thought he was excellent when he came on, really put himself about and showed plenty of physicality.

The youngsters were just brilliant though and shows what a good state our game is in at the minute. Underhill and Earle to start with and then Isiekwe and Curry(especially) in the latter stages. Curry showed what has to be done to get a sniff at Int level, Chick needs to step it up!

Times report rating uncapped players and comparing Mark with Josh Beaumont. "Mark Wilson looked the far more accomplished player."

Well done, Mark. Right place, right time, wrong dad. Eddy J will have seen what he has been missing.

Second best English 6 in my opinion. Behind Robshaw who is a world class 6

Eddie likes players who quite categorically throw the kitchen sink at the game. It is the reason why he stuck with Robshaw and Haskell. Wilson is cut in the same cloth and a fair bit younger than Haskell and to some extent Robshaw.

Not a surprise when he got his chance Eddie liked what he saw.

Fantastic news, he should be properly chuffed with his little self.

Excellent news! Real pleased for him. Properly earned too. Hope it inspires the others. On the other side I hope he still has energy when premiership rugby resumes.
I think he will kick on in that environment too.

Nobody has worked than Mark to earn a call up. I also think he will grow on in the International environment. More rugby to watch this summer now

Mark is one of those players who thrives on hard work, week after week. Some players need regular breaks to keep them on top form, and some need to be kept playing week after week. Mark is definitely one of the latter.

Going back to a topic that crops up every now & then, I always think of him as Mark rather than Wilson.

Mark is a great guy who truly deserves this opportunity. I hope he starts at least one of the test matches to really give him the opportunity to stake his claim.

Couldn't be ignored the way he thrust himself into the game when he came on. Always baffles me when players come on as substitutes and don't use their freshness to really make a mark (excuse the pun).

Wilson is certainly up there, not sure on the Robshaw World Class status though, he's a good Int player.
