Luke Thompson will make his NRL debut on Saturday.

The England forward has joined Canterbury from St Helens. He has been named at number 13 for the Bulldogs’ clash against Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium. Thompson replaces Adam Elliott, who has a shoulder injury.

The 25-year-old was named in Canterbury’s extended squad last week but didn’t feature, however, he will get his chance to impress this weekend.

With Saints, Thompson won two Grand Finals and emerged as one of the best props in the world.
