Saracens centre Joel Tomkins has rejoined former club Wigan Warriors.

Tomkins switched codes to join Sarries two years ago but has decided to make a return to rugby league.

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall told the club website: "Joel’s spell in rugby union can only be described as a great success.

"He worked hard to understand a new code, produced many fine performances for Saracens and was duly rewarded by selection to play for England in the Autumn internationals last season. His achievement within two years has been remarkable.

"We are extremely disappointed to see him leave but Joel has simply reached a decision that he is an even better rugby league player."
