He went on to excel not only at rugby, but also at tennis, cricket, and basketball. Wilkinson became a fixture in the England team, and started in all their matches in the 1999 Five Nations Championship. Wilkinson played for England in matches against Australia, the United States and Canada as the 1999 Rugby World Cup approached. England won all their subsequent matches during the tournament, with the exception of the Irish match, which was postponed until October. As a result of Neil Jenkins suffering a number of injuries and a dip in form, Wilkinson was picked as the first choice fly-half and goal kicker for the 2001 British Lions tour to Australia in July.

He became a fixture in a side that went on to win the 1997/8 Premiership title. By March 1998 he was in the full England Test squad. Following the quarter-final playoff win against Fiji, Wilkinson was relegated to the bench by head coach for the quarter-final against South Africa. England lost the match by 44-21 and exited the tournament. 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.

At the age of twelve, while at Pierrepont School, Frensham, Wilkinson told his rugby master “I want to play for England, that’s all I want”. However, in 1997 he gave up the student life to become a professional rugby player with the Newcastle Falcons. 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). Following the quarter-final playoff win against Fiji, Wilkinson was relegated to the bench by head coach for the quarter-final against South Africa.
