REVEALED: Saracens complete triple signing ahead of season in the Championship

Joel Tomkins

In 2011, the club paid £250k for the rugby league star to be released from his contract with Wigan Warriors.

Struggling to adapt to the code-switch early on, he proved to be a decent operator at times in the Sarries midfield, winning a handful of England caps during his three years at Allianz Park.

However, towards the end of his contract, he looked out of his depth and returned from where he came as soon as his contract expired in 2014.
