This is a bonkers thread. Chris Hill leaving Wire to be replaced by Luke Thompson.

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).


More than decent. He's a fantastic player, I'd expect him to go back to saints though unless they really upset him so I very much doubt this would happen.

Makes you pine for the days when it was rumoured that Scully was coming back to Wires, signing on New Years Day, as a friend of a friends cousin had done the wrap for the sponsored car....

There are always loads of rumours, some quite bizarre, some believable, but most of them certainly die a death. But if we look at Chris Hill, we do know that his contract ends this year and from April he will be a free agent. He is also our oldest player and will be 34 in November. He has got to the age where he will be diverting a good part of his attention to life after rugby league and perhaps one final contract pay day. Is it so unlikely that he might be tempted back home to Leigh ? And from our point of view we ought to be looking at a suitable replacement. To give ourselves options that ought to be both internal promotion and external recruitment as Hilly will be a hard act to follow.
So there has to be some plans that the club are already progressing because of the April deadline, which means you have to consider the rumour as a possibility. The Luke Thompson one is perhaps less likely for obvious reasons, but the club does have a track record for big name signings, so whilst less likely, I don't think I would dismiss it out of hand.

‘34 in November!’..lol
So what part of the playing 2021 season is he not 33?
You’d make a great politician.
He was only 32 two months ago btw!

I am taking the information from Wiki and England Rugby who give his DOB as November 1987. Hence 33 currently and 34 in November.

duckie you are actually right in terms of political comms. Winslade has played a blinder there because he has got you to focus on the issue he wanted to - that Hill is approaching the end of his career. Whether he's 33 or 34 doesn't change the point. He's got you talking about his age.

Hill going to Leigh would be like Morley going to Salford. It may happen, if not this year, next year.

I feel strangely sad about Chris Hill's career, even though he hasn't been a bad player. I remember in the 2013 World Cup thinking he was pretty much on par with Sam Burgess. I thought he was going to be a Burgess/Morley/Graham type player, one of the best in the world for a decade. Instead he was more like Fielden - a terrific player for the first few years of his career. He didn't flame out like Fielden it was more a drop from world-class to 'decent SL prop'.

You can take it straight from the Duck’s backside.
Hill isn’t leaving Wire.

Chris Hill = Stuart Fielden pre-2006. You've got to be kidding.
