    Default Thommo's injury - weeks or months???

    From the St Helens star it's described as a syndesmosis injury - and that "he will be sidelined for a matter of a few weeks, but more news will follow".

    Link here: https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/sport...ow-for-saints/

    I'm hopeful that a few weeks is possible, but the research suggests more like 2 months average, and a range of 6 weeks to nearly 4 months, depending on the nature and severity of the injury sustained.

    Let's hope it's not serious and he's back at full strength in time for Magic weekend, get well soon Thommo.

    The Mole in Aus is suggesting that Canterbury Bulldogs are after Luke Thompson?

    Every team in Aus should be after him if they’ve got any sense.
    Canterbury isn’t exactly an appealing club though and hasn’t been for a few years.

    I must say I don't fancy our chances of keeping hold of Thompson. He's the kind of player they love over there.

    Bateman's a little Jack Russell of a player and his will to win dragged the piescum to the GF last season; I thought he'd be a bit on the small side but if he's playing well and getting plaudits, then I'm not completely surprised.

    But Sutton? FFS, he was a very ordinary plodder over here. I can't remember him doing anything memorable, especially not against us.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    FI felt exactly the same about Bateman's size, but there was no doubting his skill and will to win. Sutton, you have said it all.

    Holbrook said they don’t think he needs surgery but won’t know for certain until his scan results are back. Hopefully just the 4-6 weeks out.

    There's been interest in Holbrook and Thompson since last year. I think we'll do well to keep him, can't see him signing a new deal with us. That said we kept walmsley, another couple of years would be fantastic if we could manage it.

    There are worse periods of the season to be injured i suppose. Let’s hope he makes a full and swift recovery. Opportunity for the likes of Amor and Ashworth in the meantime.

    What's the rule wrt the salary cap and home-grown players?

    Isn't there a maximum value counted on the cap?

    Or is that restricted to just one player?
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    Always felt Sutton was underrated

    Very tough good player, seems lighter and quicker since leaving for the NRL

    Such is the gap that now exists

    Their game has progressed massively, they have more finance, money means they can pick the best players

    We need more money, how's that done? That's a bigger question, but this proves we have the players

    Well, you would, wouldn't you.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you had a half'n'half scarf.

    Don't be worried about praising an opposition player, the world won't end

    I praised Bateman in this very thread.

    But Sutton is in the same bracket as Ricky Bibey or Bryn Hargreaves or Dom Crosby. Just Joey Average SL props.

    I wouldn't call Bibey average, he wasn't that good! Hargreaves was a good decent workhorse, I did rate Crosby but he has proved me wrong, he is average.
    Sutton has something about him, I like him as a player but let's see how he progresses

    Sutton has size on his side, but he never realised any of his potential in Super League. His signing is probably based on a recommendation from someone at Wigan or Bateman himself as there is nothing on video in a Sky game to base it on. He's probably on next to nothing, comparative to what he's on here, just going as a roll of the dice to see if he can make it from both parties whilst having a paid holiday in Australia. He'll no doubt come back to Wigan or another Super League side on a bigger deal as a former NRL player. If he does make it, fair play to him it's a tough ask and the fashionability of being an English forward will only carry him so far. Just wait till a Matty Lees or Luke Thompson goes over and they realise what a goldmine certain parts of Super League actually are.

    I'm with Upside on this! Sutton always looked a decent young prop at Wigan. However his form in the NRL has exceeded my expectations of him. He's playing at 13 and playing very well.
