Luke Thompson tipped to make huge Super League move

Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves and Super League and World Champions St Helens have been linked frequently with a move for NRL star and England international Luke Thompson.

This year it has been Wigan who have been linked with the prop with reports down under claiming that they were set to make a big offer for the prop.

Matt Peet admitted he admired the prop but denied that the offer had been made.

Recently, Wests Tigers and St George Illawarra Dragons have made moves for the prop whilst Canterbury Bulldogs chief Phil Gould has promised departures.

Following this Zero Tackle have tipped him to make a return to Super League in 2024.

Thompson recently spoke about his future but also his battles against injury.

“I could never write the year off,” Thompson said to the Daily Telegraph.

“Not playing this year never entered my mind. All year I’ve been trying to get back as soon as I could. My main focus was to get back and help the lads.

“It has taken longer than I hoped but it’ll be good to get back out there.

“I was back in the gym a week after surgery. You can’t train on your feet but you can do other stuff. I kept sitting in the team video sessions because I had to keep footy on my mind.

“Because as soon as I was ready to come back I had to be ready to go. It took longer than expected but all the hard work is going to pay off.”

When asked about his future, he said: “It’s a bit of a unique situation. I missed the back-end of last year and then played a World Cup. I came in ready for a big season and then I got injured.

“I know my values and what I bring to a club and team. For me it’s reminding people because I have not been there for a quite a while now. Injury can make you better or define you. I always have mindset to get it right.”

Last week, Thompson made a return to the reserves for Bulldogs.

“I felt really good,” Thompson said. “The foot felt good and my lungs were better than I expected. It gave me a lot of confidence. Straight away I could feel that everything I’d done was starting to pay me back.”
