Dominic is an outstanding centre who joined Northampton Saints in July 2012 after nine years at London Wasps.
A former pupil of Latymer Upper School, London-born Dominic was a natural at a variety of sports, playing football for Fulham Academy, cricket for the South East England U16s and representing Middlesex at athletics.
However, rugby was his first love and after learning his trade at Richmond and representing England through the age-groups, it was only a matter of time before Dominic earned a full-time professional contract with London Wasps, making his senior debut against London Irish in the EDF Energy Cup in October 2006.
In May 2007, Dominic came off the bench to earn a Heineken Cup winner’s medal when Wasps beat Leicester Tigers 25-9 at Twickenham.
Blessed with tremendous balance and pace, Dominic caught the attention of the national selectors as Wasps marched to the Guinness Premiership title the following season, and his first involvement with the England senior team was on the 2008 summer tour to New Zealand at the tender age of 20.
In 2009, he started all four England Saxons matches, scoring a try on his debut against Portugal.
A run of 17 Premiership appearances during the 2009/2010 season led to Dominic’s promotion to the Senior Elite Player Squad and subsequent selection for the summer tour of Australia and New Zealand. Having caught the eye in the first half of the midweek game against the Australian Barbarians in Gosford, a first Test appearance seemed sure to follow but a twisted ankle ended Dominic’s involvement in the tour.
Dominic was named a vice-captain of Wasps for 2010/2011 though a ruptured achilles tendon brought a premature end to his involvement that season. Dom made 15 appearances for Wasps in the 2011/2012 campaign - taking his career total for the club above 100 - also representing England Saxons in their defeat away to Scotland.
In July 2012 Dom switched clubs for the first time in his career, leaving Wasps where he had spent nine years to join Northampton Saints with immediate effect after the two clubs agreed terms for his early release.
