Mark Tampin joined Newcastle Falcons in the summer of 2019 from Ealing Trailfinders.

Born in London but beginning his professional rugby career in Yorkshire, tight-head Tampin was in the Leeds Carnegie academy before making his name as a regular for Rotherham.

Moving to Jersey in 2016, Tampin spent two seasons with Ealing before earning his switch to the North East.

Helping the Falcons to promotion in 2019-20, Tampin made his Premiership debut in 2020-21, playing 17 times that season.

An extremely consistent performer on the tight-head side, Tampin played 23 times during 2021-22, adding a further 21 during 2022-23 and earning a new two-year deal.
