Mathew Tait made his debut for Newcastle Falcons in 2004 against London Irish and scored a try with his first touch of the ball. Later that same year he was part of the England team that won the Dubai Sevens and in 2005 he became the second youngest player since World War II, behind Jonny Wilkinson, to play for England in the game against Wales in the 6 Nations. He was unceremoniously dropped after the game and did not return to the Test side until 2006; he played in the 2007 RBS 6 Nations and went on the summer tour to South Africa. During his time in the Test wilderness, Tait was a regular in the England Sevens team and played in the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, scoring 9 tries to be the tournaments top try scorer whilst also helping England to win a silver medal. Tait has gone on to become a regular in England's backline, playing a major role in his country's march to the 2007 World Cup final.
