Still just 25-years-old, Dom brought a wealth of experience to Franklin’s Gardens having already tucked away Heineken Cup and Premiership winners’ medals during his time at Wasps.
Comfortable at 12 or 13, he also toured with England as a 20-year-old and while injury robbed him of a first cap, Dom has remained a regular on the international scene ever since with the Saxons.
An extrememly talented sportsman, Dom also played football for Fulham Academy, cricket for South East England U16s and represented Middlesex County at athletics.
It was in rugby that he continues to excel, however, and playing primarily at inside centre no Saints back came close to Dom's 159 tackles - which were made at an impressive 92.5 percent, too.
Only a serious hamstring injury would deny Dom his chance of a second Aviva Premiership title after 25 appearances in his debut season with the Saints.
