Very true. Wish I had the time!
But TK takes most of my spare time
He reminds me of Tyson Frizzel.
Well he has a chance to impress us all with the World Club Challenge game coming up against the Rorters on the 22nd of Feb.
If he can monster these Rooster forwards than we will all be licking our lips!
Well I don't know about Thomo monstering the Roosters forwards maybe in defense but if he can hit a few holes and have them grasping at air I certainly will be excited.
This was obviously recorded pre signing, but still interesting to hear what the talking heads over there have to say about it all.. it's nice that they we are still known for our bite over there after some average seasons
TBH i think its good that the current squad will have another full season together prior to his arrival, as it could be a wasted year with all the bedding down and new halves combo etc
i want him here we we have ironed out some more shit and be a bit more competitive by seasons end
St Helens got belted 19-0 this morning I can’t find any live stats on the game but I’m guessing Thompson didn’t star.
Watched the second half. His big mate Walmsley was ruled out just before the start.
Tiny fella with leg speed but got buckled a few times and didn't really have too much of an impact.
Commentators talked him up like some kind of colossus whenever he had the ball.
They are of the opinion he will be fantastic.
I'm hopeful, tiny bit sceptical.
To be fair he had a big work rate in defence and because Walmsley was out had to play longer minutes than usual. St.Helens were way below their best all over the park particularly with their ball control.
I watched the game this morning,
The commentary mentioned him several times about coming to our club and were very confident that luke will be up to the task in the NRL.
They defended for long periods of the game
He is a bit lean but is fast and was always prepared to take a hit up.
His leg drive was very good & didn’t look lazy at all.
More than happy with this acquisition.
Can’t wait to see him run out in our colours
It will take some adjustment for him. It's a step up week in week out.
Pretty obvious he is class and competitive so will get it together sooner rather than later.
His "progress" report will have a minus sign on it next Saturday.
I’m looking forward to watching him next weekend,
Hope they win and he has a cracker game,man of the match is good enough I suppose lol
Luke will not go missing in action from what I saw today.
He is young & ambitious with a point to prove.
I think he was rested today, but yeah a great player for sure
One guy who impresses me is from St. Helens is Theo Fages. Hes a halfback and goes good.
Go to YouTube and search "Luke Thompson St. Helens", and you should see a clip labelled "welcome Luke Thompson" It should also be on the Dogs website.
Having seen some of their games, I had the same thoughts as you.
The Dogs had their origins with people you would label as socialists. They were salt of the earth types who put community ahead of the individual, because that's how teams work best.
