‘Hasn’t run for two weeks’: Bulldogs say they will not rush Englishman Luke Thompson into the sideJune 29, 2020
Canterbury coach Dean Pay says he will not rush English prop Luke Thompson into the side despite the side’s latest loss – a 34-6 defeat to Wests Tigers.
Thompson has been quarantined in a Melbourne hotel room for the past two weeks.
“We spoke about it and said we’ll see how we are,” Pay said.
“He hasn’t run for quite a while so if he is ready he is ready, if not we will give him another week.
“He will have a week at training, he hasn’t run for two weeks because he has been stuck in a hotel room so we assess him this week and see how he is.”
