More on Sam Tomkins

Tomkins made his debut in 2008 in a Challenge Cup match against Whitehaven, becoming the first rugby league player to score five tries in a first-grade debut.

He is the younger brother of Joel Tomkins and the older brother of Logan.

The full-back enjoyed a breakthrough year in 2009 and was named in the Super League Dream Team. As a youngster, he made his England debut that same season.

He went on to claim three Grand Finals, two Challenge Cups and two League Leaders’ Shields with the Warriors.

In between two stints at the DW Stadium, Tomkins spent two years in the NRL with New Zealand Warriors before returning in 2016.

The England captain made the switch to France ahead of the 2019 season and was named Man of Steel in 2021, having led the Dragons to their first ever Grand Final. He signed a new one-year deal with the club for the 2023 season.

  1. Tomkins was the complete drama queen and Catalans’ undoing against the Rhinos. Neither he nor Roby should play for England. If I were Wane, I would build my team around players from this side of the Pennines: always rock solid, having that extra class to perform on the big occasions and prominent in the most successful of GB and England teams. Lancastrians invariably disappoint at international level. ID, Rhino
