WILSON'S LABOURS EARN DEBUT.

Byline: FROM ADAM HATHAWAY in San Juan

NEWCASTLE flanker Mark Wilson is one of England's new boys on duty against Argentina tonight but he has another new boy on his mind.

Wilson's wife Amy is expecting their second child shortly, yet the Falcon will not be flying home even if she goes into labour.

The baby is not due for three weeks but their first child, Ella, was born three weeks early in 2014.

However, the back-rower has the OK to stay in South America because he has waited an eternity to get his Test debut.

The 27-year-old said: "My son is due at the end of the month. It's one of those where it could be any time now, but I couldn't turn down the opportunity to come down here."

Wilson (left) is one of four new caps in the starting lineup. He was not in the original squad, but injuries, Lions call-ups and Tom Wood's ban saw him called up.

He added: "You can never give up on what you set out to achieve. I was hoping something would come along."
