Player Biog

Given that he plays in one of the most uncompromising positions on the rugby field, Tom was certainly an early developer in the game. The prop made his first team debut in the Heineken Cup aged just 18 and raced through the 50-appearance mark for Saracens.

He has made it through the age groups of the England setup, too, and has been a regular England Saxon over the past few years.

Having made his debut in the 2010/11 season opening win over Leicester, Tom has been a match-day regular for the Saints in all competitions and consistently illustrates his scrummaging capabilities.

While he may go about his business relatively quietly, Tom's development was recognised by those who matter most as he wrestled the number three shirt from Brian Mujati's grasp in early 2012/13.

The intense frustration of injury saw that starting spot handed back almost immediately, but the tight-head stuck to his task and was back as a match-day regular shortly after a return to fitness.

Now an Aviva Premiership champion following a second final appearance in as many season with the club, Tom heads into a fifth season with the club as a crucial squad member.
