Dear me, you must be living in a cave if you think that, Hill has been rubbish for the past 18 months. Right now Thompson is the best prop in SL, I don’t think anyone can doubt that the man is a machine and the stats back that up. As a saints fan he’s cemented his place as our best prop right know and that says a lot because Walmsley has been good as well. He also won saints player of the month recently and it’s not just me who rates him that highly, people who watch most games also agree. Not like he was given a new contract for nothing. You’re either a Warrington fan or just blind.

There's a difference between been the best prop in Super League and been in good form. Right now Thompson is in good form. That's it.

O’Connor said he’s one of his favourite players in the Saints team, he was nominated for man of the match, I’ve seen Warrington fans praise him and when you search his name on Twitter all you find is praise. The only props who you could argue are better than him are Walmsley, Cuthbertson and Fifita. It’s not even just the metres he makes but how durable he is.

Better than Hill? Not yet he isn't and that's taking into account your subjective reasoning that Hill has been rubbish for the past 18 months.


Yes he is, he’s in far better shape and makes a lot more metres every game. The main job of a prop is to guide his team forward, run hard and fracture the defensive line. Luke Thompson is better at all three and that is an undeniable, supported by the fact Thompson’s second for metres made and Hills nowhere to be seen. The only Wire player who should be in the elite squad is Clark.

Mitch Garbutt is an underrated prop. 17 out of 21 games in 2017 he had 100m+ games with an average of 141m and 18 out of 21 games in 2016 with an average just short of 140m. He came back from injury vs Widnes the other week with no training and did 123m and then 196m vs Hull the other night. Whilst there's more than just making metres as a prop, in that department he's as good as anyone in the league.

That's phenomenal that.

All you do is bandy names you have no real knowledge at all. Fifita is a fans favourite and a great player but many Trinity fans will tell you that pound for pound Anthony England is the best prop at the club - apart from a dip in form at the start of 2017 due to a shoulder injury he's been ripping it up at BV since he arrived, massivly under rated player - expalin that.

He is a bit of a bell though.

Hill,Ratchford and Brown are very fortunate to have been selected judging by their current club form shown so far this season

Tomkins has really dropped out of favour if he cannot make the elite squad especially as Wigan believe that Tomkins is a marquee class signing
Clearly someone's opinions of him are clearly wrong?

Kevin Brown is out.
Having called time and retiring from international career.

Shame he never replicated his club form. Especially when he was at Widnes when he was outstanding for a few years.
Don't blame him from retiring, as there are a few youngsters coming through. That can be the future.

Be intresting to see who Bennett calls up to replace him.
Hull KR the pride of East Hull.
