Tompkins enjoying 'amazing experience'

Academy centre Nick Tompkins came off the bench to score a try in Saracens’ 23-25 away win against Newcastle Falcons.

The 19-year old midfielder replaced Charlie Hodgson at half-time, after the experienced Saracens fly-half left the field with a ‘stinger’ injury.

Speaking about his 40 minute cameo in the heart of the Saracens back line, Tompkins said: “There’s a few mixed emotions really. I feel there’s one or two things that I need to improve on after today, but I’m pretty happy with the try and most importantly, helping the team to a good win on the road.

“I just want to help the side once I’m out there".

He added: I’ve found this season a pretty amazing experience so far. Just to get time to be around the boys and see what standard I have to get to is really good for me.  I’ve been loving it so far”.
