Now an England international, the rugged Wilson is the forward discovery of the last 12 months for Newcastle and Eddie Jones.
The versatile Falcons back-rower forced his way into the England squad in the summer and shone against Argentina.
Great close-quarter grappling strength and a huge appetite for work makes him a breakdown menace.
Dean Richards has developed his Falcons team around Wilson, making him essential for them this season.
