St.Helens R.F.C have agreed to transfer Luke Thompson to NRL club Canterbury Bulldogs for an undisclosed sum with immediate effect.
Chairman Eamonn McManus said on the matter:
“St. Helens had been placed in a difficult position as Luke Thompson had opted not to participate in our club wide squad and staff pay reduction arrangement for the 2020 season, this being necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic and its significant commercial consequences.
“It was therefore agreed to be in everyone’s best interests for the transfer to take place now rather than at the end of the season as originally planned.”
Thompson spent 13 years at the Saints, having progressed through our successful academy system to make his debut in 2013.
The club wish Luke all the best in the next stage of his career.
