2013 Player Review: Joel Thompson

In his final season at the Raiders before departing for the Dragons, tough-as-nails second rower Joel Thompson was able to leave the club in a thoroughly positive light through his fantastic contribution on and off the field this year, in addition to that of the previous five years.

Thompson made his debut for the Raiders in 2008, the same year he was a part of the Raiders’ premiership winning NYC team.

He went onto play in 89 NRL matches over the ensuing five years and in turn proved himself to be one of the toughest, hard-working and team orientated back-rowers in the competition.
