After an impressive start to life as a Robin in 2018, Tomkins went on to sign a three-year contract, as well as earning the captain’s role for his leadership qualities on the field and in the changing rooms.

Highly admired by his peers, the former England international in both rugby league and union, has racked up over 250 first team games during his two spells for Wigan Warriors and also played for Saracens after briefly switching codes midway through his career for a reported £250,000 transfer fee.

Powerfully built but with excellent skills and good speed, Tomkins provides a different option in the back row for the Robins, but can also play through the middle and further wide as a centre.
