Latest on Sam Tomkins injury

If ever there was someone close enough to Sam Tomkins to understand whether or not he will be right for the Grand Final, is his brother Joel.

The two were reunited at the Catalans Dragons ahead of the 2020 season when Joel decided to join Sam in the south of France.

And, Joel spoke to the press as the Dragons’ preparations for the Super League Grand Final on Saturday get underway – with a number of questions focusing on Sam’s injury.

“It’s no secret that he had an issue and didn’t play in the semi-final, but he’s pretty confident he will be playing this week,” Joel said.

Joel was also keen to stress just how important Sam is to this Catalans side.

“He just makes the right decisions nine times out of ten – if he’s got a three on two, he picks the right pass.

“He’s a calming influence on the rest of the backs – Arthur Mourgue has got a huge future ahead of him, but I think he would be the first one to put his hand up and sit on the bench if Sam plays.”
