When Alex Lewington linked up with Saracens in the summer of 2018, he arrived with a reputation as an electric winger and superb finisher.

He lived up to that tag by scoring twice on his Sarries debut at Newcastle Falcons before adding a further six tries in his opening eight matches for the club.
A former Notts County FC Academy defender, Lewington began his career at Leicester Tigers, making several appearances in the LV= Cup. He moved on to his hometown club Nottingham and his success with the Championship outfit led to London Irish purchasing his signature in 2013.
The ex-England Saxon appeared over 100 times for Irish and on his return from injury in the 2016/17 campaign he scored 10 tries in as many games before dotting down twice in the Championship play-off final as the Madejski outfit returned to the top flight.
In his debut season at Allianz Park, Lewington notched 11 tries in 28 matches.
