“Joining halfway through the season was quite tough with coming into a new environment where all the boys knew each other, but the boys and the staff were all fantastic with me, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far,” Tomkins, 31, said.
“The fans have been really welcoming as well as the whole city, I have really enjoyed my time here so far and now moving over to the city gives me an opportunity to experience a different culture.”
