Well as Thompson is voted good enough to make a World Class X111 and Hill + Connor never got on the radar I would imagine he would regular start. Philbin has played 30% more games than Thompson and is nowhere near the performance game stats, that would suggest that Thompson is an A roader and not a Philbin back street performer.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
Welsby-Dodd-Simms-Eaves-Rizzelli, not Eastmond...the future is coming.

Well they rarer than rocking horse shet.

2 nil will get you a win
30 nil will get you a win
75 nil is absolute humiliation.

In league games they certainly are rare - common as a Parr trollop in play-off semi-finals though.

Haha, it's been a lot more even since we got the first win, miserable before then.

I couldn't really care less who was voted in what.....and what Connor has to do with anything I've no idea! I accept that Thompson is a top performer and you see more of him than I do so I respect your opinion but in the game that mattered last season the Warrington pack were far superior to Saints in particularly the front rows of which Thompson was a part! I would suggest that before we start showing off about a World X111 lets start showing off about the big games we've helped win!

Do you actually support Widnes Al? If not, why suck up to Warrington so much?

Thompson is a brilliant player and would walk into Warrington's side as a starting prop. He's in the international setup ahead of Cooper, so absolutely no reason why he wouldn't be ahead of him domestically as well.

Thompson is/was a backrower who plays prop well, but fatigues into errors with big minutes against bigger packs. It's not fabrication...he's like Sims....well perhaps not but the bases apply...LMS is worse when he starts as a prop.

I have supported Widnes for 55 years Saddened and as such I have little love for Warrington or Saints either for that matter. I am a big admirer of Warringtons front 3 but as you would see if you read some of my other posts I prefer Saints players in most other positions, except maybe for Austin! I like chatting RL and What I would say is that the Warrington folk seem more open to reasonable discussion and are more acceptable of your opinions. However as there isn't an active Saints board on this site perhaps its just the disrespectful ones that end up on the Wire one.
I'll finish on the subject now still with my opinion that Thompson is a good player who would not automatically walk into the Warrington team as first choice prop. Until I've seen him prove himself when it matters I'll keep my opinion and no amount of abuse or slanging will change it. If it does change I'll wiilingly let you know!

Cooper has proven himself in the nrl(despite what that utter tool as108 says!). Until Thompson goes and does the same, cooper has nothing to prove to him in terms of who is better.
