Oliver Gildart and Luke Thompson fuel fire of potential move

Good friends Oliver Gildart and Luke Thompson have met up in Australia following the former’s move to the Wests Tigers.

The Tigers are the club that Thompson has been linked with, with his good relationship with Gildart fuelling the fire of a potential move.

That’s according to the Sydney Morning Herald’s Danny Weidler, with Thompson’s initial anti-vaccination stance at the Bulldogs as well as his big wage cause for concern and Gildart – Wests’ new recruit from the Wigan Warriors – has been attempting to influence the Englishman’s move to the Tigers.

Thompson went Down Under midway through the 2020 season, joining Canterbury immediately after being granted a move by former side St Helens.

That move prompted Saints legend James Graham to return to his boyhood club in one final hurrah, but Thompson could be set for a move after just one full season – if Gildart has his way.

Canterbury have already offered him to the Tigers, according to the Daily Telegraph, so it would certainly be home comforts for Thompson and Gildart if they were finally able to play for the same professional side – and alongside former Wigan star Jackson Hastings, too.
