Award joy for Wilson

Friday 8 March 2019

Following his stellar year for club and country, Newcastle Falcons' Mark Wilson has won the Malcolm Dix Trophy for Sporting Success of the Year at the Sport Newcastle Awards.

Wilson helped the Falcons to a 20-year-high league finish of fourth during the 2017-18 campaign, touring with England in the summer and going on to be an ever-present during their autumn and Six Nations campaigns.

Falcons great Doddie Weir won the Wilkinson Sword for Lifetime Achievement, the charismatic Scot currently raising millions for research into Motor Neurone Disease following his diagnosis of the currently-incurable condition.

Falcons academy prop Oscar Caudle, meanwhile, was named among the winners of 'Rising Star' awards.
