I seem to remember Thompson saying the only way he would play for Wigan would be if he was short of money, but my Dads a millionaire!

Even if that's true, I remember George Williams saying he joined Wire to win trophies.

A lot of people say a lot of things.

I think we are lacking a real big/enforcer type prop, taking Saints as the example, a Warmsley/Paasi type.

Thompson is very mobile but we are reasonably well off there but he would be a great addition.

There aren’t too many out there available. I think we have a very strong bench to turn to with havard mago Ellis cooper ect now tho which can easily match saints bench

Whilst I rate Thompson I can’t see us signing him now with Cooper joining us. I’m happy enough with the pack. I’d like us to get a quality centre in and depending on French another winger if he leaves.

I'd have Miski on the wing and one of the kids as back up. Centre is the most important position to fill at the moment.

Miski cannot be a starting winger on a contending team - no chance. He's a capable rotation player who finishes off moves but he's not big enough nor quick enough & isn't an insane finisher or defender to make up for it. He works as the extra man to a scoring edge but he's limited to exactly that.

In regards to Thompson, I think he'd make us undoubtably the best team in the league. We do miss a Walmsley type figure & usually get our big yardage from genuine ball play [which is brilliant to watch] instead of just running the ball down the opposition's throat.

Before Cooper I'd have thought Wigan In with a chance if Thompson came back home,now though no chance whoever signs him though will get a hell of a player as we know.

We've lost Hardaker & Nicholson whilst signing Cooper. In 2023, we'll lose Partington & maybe more whilst hopefully signing a centre like the rumoured Wardle.

I don't know why we wouldn't have room for Thompson when home grown marquee players [like Bateman] count for far less of the cap as far as I am aware.
