Saracens recall Wales centre Nick Tompkins from Dragons loan

Saracens have welcomed back Wales centre Nick Thompson from Dragons loan.

The 26-year-old made 14 appearances for the Dragons during his spell in south Wales, scoring his one and only try against Bordeaux-Begles in the Heineken Champions Cup.

He also played a part in helping Wales secure the 2021 Six Nations title just last month and returns now with 10 international caps to his name.

Speaking of Tompkins’ return, Director of Rugby Mark McCall is excited to working with one of the club’s home grown talents once again.

“The club are delighted to welcome Nick back from his loan spell with the Dragons,” said McCall.

“He is one of a number of our homegrown players who will be key in the development and progression of the club and we are looking forward to working with him again.”

Dragons director of rugby Dean Ryan insisted the Sarries star made an impact in his brief spell in Newport.

"Nick has been fantastic during his time his with us, combining playing for both Dragons and Wales," he said.

"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."
