* His grandfather, Phil, played football for Norwich

* Down Under on the Lions tour in 2001, Wilkinson went into a shark tank with Richard Hill and Martin Corry.

* Wilkinson once impressed himself (and some Middlesborough footballers who were looking on) when he aimed for and hit the crossbar five times in a row during a kicking drill.
