Tim Swinson

Position Lock
D.O.B 17/2/87
International Honours Scotland

Tim Swinson was tempted out of retirement to extend an already impressive 14-year career with a stint in North London.

“We believe Tim can have a really positive influence on some of our young locks.”

He initially called time on his playing days back in May 2020 having won 38 caps for Scotland and made 136 appearances for Glasgow Warriors, where he won a Pro14 title in 2015.

But when the chance to play for his boyhood club arose – Swinson played at Bramley Road as a junior – he jumped at the chance to team up with some familiar faces once again.

The lock began his career with Newcastle Falcons where he was initially coached by Ian Peel, current Saracens coach and insisted the chance to play under this coaching group was one of many factors that made the club’s offer too good to turn down.

He has pulled on the Black and Red shirt 15 times, and is a valuable member of the pack, particularly when it comes to the set-piece.
