Newcastle prop Jon Goulding's 2010 form has seen him named in the England squad for the summer tour of Australasia.
An England U19 and Saxons cap, the Ashington native started his career in the Leicester Academy before joining Northampton Saints. After getting some game time in the Premiership, Goulding dropped down a level into National Division One with Rotherham. After two seasons with the Yorkshire club, Goulding joined the Falcons in 2006.
He has been a regular starter for the Tynesiders in his time at the club, benefiting from the presence of former All Black Carl Hayman as he improved as a player. His 2009/2010 form saw him play 19 times for Newcastle and he was rewarded with a place in Martin Johnson's squad.
