Mark Wilson: Newcastle Falcons appoint former back row to coaching staff
Newcastle Falcons have appointed former back row Mark Wilson to their first-team coaching staff.
The 32-year-old former England international retired in February because of an ongoing knee problem.
“Retirement did come earlier than expected for me, but I knew it was the right time,” he told the club website.
“For the last 18 months I’ve definitely explored coaching as an option for myself, and I’m looking forward to getting back involved with the team.”
