BULLDOGS’ FEARS FOR MENTAL WELLBEING OF MARQUEE STAR
Canterbury’s lacklustre season could take another hit with fears star English recruit Luke Thompson could cut short his stint in Sydney to return home to be with his family.
Sorry cannot post a link due to restrictions but this news broke an hour ago from this post.........

Yes I bloody know transfer fees do not count on the salary cap for those illiterates that need it explaining to them because they assume everyone is as thick as they are :roll:

Let's is a contraction of “let us.” You use it to make suggestions about what you and someone else should do. Let's is NOT a promise

To be fair it does sound pretty grim, Rugby League is a very social sport its why lots of people enjoy playing it and to go from that to being in a foreign country bound to your home alone must be a bit difficult
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure

I did think it a little odd,given all that’s going on in the world that he moved early,it’s bad enough to be starting in a new country but totally on your own must be hard

He moved mid-season because he refused to take a pay cut (and the smellies were happy to take some cash off Canterbury)
St Helens' England prop Luke Thompson has been sold to NRL side Canterbury Bulldogs for an undisclosed fee after failing to take a pay cut.
He is either unbelievably stupid to assume the timing of the move wouldn't be an issue or he believed all the hype that he was the best prop the world has ever seen or maybe he was just plain greedy

Either way the excuse that just because his g/f isn't holding his hand has seen his performances drop lower than whale shit and he should now have to be considered one of the biggest English flops in the NRL period if he does comes back with his tail between his legs

Wire anyone???

I don't know about massive flop, but he seems to have gone in short order from one of the better performers in a poor side to an indifferent performer in a poor side.

If Wigan's NRL failures shouldn't be brought back to the club, why should we bring Stains NRL failures here?
