Tompkins joined Dragons from the English Premiership club at the end of last season and has made a total 14 appearances in all competitions for the Men of Gwent. The 26-year-old has now returned to his parent club following the completion of our regular Guinness PRO14 season and European Challenge Cup campaign.
“Nick has been fantastic during his time with us, combining playing for both Dragons and Wales,” said Dragons director of rugby Dean Ryan.
“In unusual times, Nick has made a big impression on us all and also benefitted from challenging himself in a new competition and environment. He leaves with our very best wishes for the future.
“Our thanks also go to Saracens for fully supporting Nick’s loan move to us over the last year.” And Wales centre Tompkins insists his game has improved significantly during his one season loan at Rodney Parade.
“My thanks go to everyone at the region,” said Tompkins. “It’s been brilliant, to come into a new environment and see a new culture and make new friends. I’ve been really impressed by the aspirations at Dragons and the desire to get better.
“What is being built is really impressive and is something you can really get behind – it’s impressed me from day one. The group of boys at the region is young, humble and have a great work ethic.
“They want to impress and work so hard. There is an exciting future at Dragons and I truly wish the region every success for the future.”
