Saracens centre Nick Tompkins is already looking forward to the final round of the Champions Cup pool stages after his eye-catching performance against Lyon at the weekend.

Two-time Champions Cup winners Saracens booked their place in the quarter-finals with a bonus-point, 28-10 victory away in Lyon on Sunday.

Flanker Jackson Wray and scrum-half Ben Spencer both touched down, to add to Tompkins’ barnstorming double. 

“It’s good, it’s nice to get a couple of tries,” commented Tompkins.

“It’s nice to help the team out, just weaselling away, but it’s the win that is important.

“That was a tough game; a good game.

“They kept it in-field a lot and it was a big shift from a lot of the boys – the forwards… unbelievable work from them; Mako (Vunipola) with two assists was unbelievable.”

In more good news for the north-Londoners, lock Maro Itoje impressed on his return from injury as the Men in Black made it five wins from five and rose to 23 points in Pool Three.

The English side will win their section if they beat Glasgow in the last round of pool games on Saturday.

Tompkins added: “Every time we come away we see it as a great opportunity to show what we’re about and I think we did that here. There are obviously things we want to improve on but we showed that in spades.

“It’s a massive ‘big up’ to us to take into Glasgow.”
