Thompson attracting NRL interest

Canterbury Bulldogs are keeping tabs on Luke Thompson according to nine.com.au.

The 24-year-old has had a drastic rise to stardom in the last 12 months and was impressive for England in last Autumn’s Test Series against the Kiwis.

Thompson has become one of St Helens most important players and was arguably Super League’s standout forward in the last campaign.

Despite suffering a recent injury, he has continued his fine form into this season and has helped Saints win all but one of their games in 2019.

The Bulldogs are currently struggling at the foot of the NRL table and despite only playing seven rounds, they are already looking at recruits for next season.

Thompson is one of the players they have highlighted, with head coach Dean Pay particular eager to improve his sides dwindling forward pack.

It’s unlikely Saints will let him go easily though and head coach Justin Holbrook is keen to tie the England international down to a long-term deal at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

Should Thompson make the move to Belmore, he would follow in the footsteps of James Graham who became a cult hero for the Bulldogs after signing from St Helens in 2012.
