This came after the former Rugby World Cup winner selected the 25-year-old in his team of the Six Nations, describing the four-cap international as “off the charts” on his Sky Sports podcast.

The Saracens center was relatively unknown in Wales when he was selected for Wayne Pivac’s squad in January, but has taken his opportunity on the Test stage with both hands. A try-scoring debut off the bench against Italy in round one of the tournaments earned him a starting berth in the next three rounds, where he has gone from strength to strength.

While he may not boast the frame of the likes of Manu Tuilagi or Virimi Vakatawa, he has nonetheless managed to make the most carries and beat the most defenders in the Championship. Although most comfortable at inside center, he has taken to the No.13 shirt with aplomb this year, bringing his tenacious carrying to the outside channels.

Greenwood also noted the interception he threw against France for Romain Ntamack’s try, which was ultimately a gamble that paid off for the Frenchman. Elsewhere in that match, the Saracen was Wales’ most potent runner in the backline and produced several probing kicks into the French backfield. He also came close to salvaging a win for Wales in the last play of the game.

So many Lions competitors have had truncated Six Nations campaigns, or none at all, due to injury, such as Davies, Garry Ringrose, and Tuilagi. Therefore, it is hard to argue with Greenwood that Tompkins has probably made the best account of himself this year and would be worthy of a place in Warren Gatland’s Lions squad if the tour of South Africa was this summer.
