“The Hurricanes loose forward has endured a horror injury run after dislocating his shoulder three times in the past two seasons, restricting him to two appearances last year.
At this best, Thomson has been a bruising No 8 for Taranaki and the Hurricanes. He is a threat in the wide channels; thrives when getting his arms free to offload and offers a reliable lineout presence. He is also more than comfortable at blindside or lock.”

Hope he stays injury free. Sounds like a good fit for us

Remember that Shaun Lamont was injury prone when he signed for us.

He looks a handy player from his highlight reel. Very comfortable in possession and athletic for a big guy. His versatility would be an asset too.

Injury record would be the only concern.

Yes, always liked Thomson. Reminds me of the Thomson twins. He was so good, they thought there were two of him.

Their music was at another level, though.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Thomson as second row, Amosa at 8 and I'd be happy.
Thought Wells had a quiet game for Warhatas this morning but did nothing wrong.
