The “complicated” aspect of Super League club’s huge offer to Luke Thompson

Last night it was said that one of Super League’s best forwards in recent history could be coming back to play for a rival club.

According to reports, a Super League club has made a huge offer for English NRL star Luke Thompson.

The offer is a huge four year deal from “a rich club” according to the Mole of the Wide World of Sports.

And making matters more interesting is the fact it comes from Thompson’s former side’s – St Helens’ – biggest rivals the Wigan Warriors.

Thompson won the Grand Final with St Helens in 2019 winning the Harry Sunderland Award as Man of the Match against Salford Red Devils and has starred for England since then.

There have been constant questions over whether he would return to Super League since his NRL move to Canterbury Bulldogs in 2020.

He was linked with a return to St Helens or a move to Leeds Rhinos or Warrington Wolves.

Now injured, more questions have been raised about his future in the NRL and Wigan have put in a huge offer according to the Mole.

But what “complicates” all of this, according to the Mole, is the fact that Thompson has two managers – one in the UK and one in Sydney.

Thus, it is something of a tug of war between the two sides of his career it seems.

Wigan have also offered Thompson more money than the Bulldogs can presently match even though he is on $800,000 at the Bulldogs.
