Next year maybe, as earlier poster states, if we have someone of equal ability coming in.

I'd be disappointed if this is true. Although he is getting on I still think he has more than 1 good season left in him and until he retired I don't think we could replace him with better. His contract is up at the end of this season, by which time we will have a bette idea if either butler and mulhern are likely to be good enough and resilient (avoiding injuries) enough to be Chris Hills successor. Hill makes the match day 17 every week for me so letting him go weakens our best team and is counter productive, yes we will lose him sometime in the nearish future but I wouldn't like it to be now and I really don't like the idea of it being behind closed doors, he definitely deserves to hear our appreciation.

Hill and cooper are still our best props, even with gb international philbin and 2 England capped in butler and Mulhern.


This. Hill isn't quite the player he was, but given his age, gradual decline is only to be expected. And yes, we all get frustrated with how many penalties he gives away and how much energy he has wasted on blabbing to referees, but he is still very much worth his place in the side, for another season at least. It's all about succession planning, and hopefully signing Butler and Mulhern has gone a long way to achieving that. Time will tell.

I think it’s an empty rumour but at least it is something to discuss!
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

I’m led to believe you have signed former Saints prop Luke Thompson for the 2022 season. Maybe this move has been brought forward which means Hill will be granted a release?

That would be some upgrade. Given what he's on in Australia, I suspect he'd need to be a marquee signing for whoever signed him.

Hill is like the Benjamin Button of props. He joined us as the masterful veteran, superb technique, consistent and composed, basically on par with Morley as one of the great front rowers of SL. Now 9 years on he is a promising but hot headed prop who gives away penalties and lets himself get distracted arguing with refs. Maybe in a couple of years time he will be a skinny spotty kid worth a spot in the Academy.

I so want this to be true if only to see the meltdown on a certain other forum! (It would be a decent signing in its own right, obviously).

In the days of Morley ,Carvell & Wood with Cooper emerging from the reserves ,i always though our best front row was Hill , Higham & Wood.

I'd expect Saints to have a "first refusal option" should he come back to the UK
