TRANSFER: Wales centre Nick Tompkins returns to English rugby

The Dragons have confirmed that Wales international centre Nick Tompkins has returned to Saracens following his successful loan spell at the region.

The 26-year-old joined Dragons from the English Premiership club at the end of last season and has made a total 14 appearances in all competitions for the Men of Gwent.

Tompkins has now returned to his parent club following the completion of our regular Guinness PRO14 season and European Challenge Cup campaign.

Dean Ryan, Director of Dragons Rugby, said: “Nick has been fantastic during his time with us, combining playing for both Dragons and Wales.

“In unusual times, Nick has made a big impression on us all and also benefitted from challenging himself in a new competition and environment. He leaves with our very best wishes for the future.

“Our thanks also go to Saracens for fully supporting Nick’s loan move to us over the last year.”

WARBURTON SAID: “I know he didn’t play any of the Six Nations, but when he’s fit he punishes people. I think from a defensive point of view, him being missing is the major reason why England haven’t ticked in defence. He’s their one player that flies off the line and batters people from minute one to 80.”
