Tom Stephenson (born 5 May 1994) is an English rugby union player who currently plays for Aviva Premiership side Northampton Saints.
A former Moulton College student, and one of the most exciting prospects to emerge from the Saints Academy in recent years. Playing a year above age for England Under-18's, Stephenson captained the side as they returned home from the FIRA/AER tournament in Madrid as champions.
A product of the Saints Academy, Stephenson made his first senior bow in a Saints shirt in 2012 and quickly became a staple of the first team.
Featuring in the 2013/14 double winning season, Stephenson came off the bench in both the European Rugby Challenge Cup final and the Aviva Premiership final in which Saints lifted the two trophies.
Having already travelled with England Under-20s in 2012/13, Stephenson then went to New Zealand, picking up a Junior World Championship winners’ medal for the second year on the bounce. https://www.therugbyblog.com/england-u20-squad-named-for-junior-world-championship</ref>
Struggling with injury in recent years, Stephenson only featured in two games for Saints in 2015/16 before suffering a blow in Saints' 2016/17 preseason, going on to not play a game that year.
It was announced on May 30, 2017, though, that Stephenson would join fellow Saints teammate Tom Collins in travelling to Australia for the summer to progress his rugby after returning from injury late in the season.
