BBC Sport - Super League Show: Corey Thompson helps give Widnes lift-off

Winger Thompson gives Widnes lift-off

Meet Corey Thompson, the Widnes winger giving Denis Betts' side lift-off after a flying start to Super League XXI.

The 25-year-old from Brisbane emerged from the Queensland Cup competition to join Canterbury Bulldogs, and played in the Grand Final for Des Hasler's side.

He swapped the NRL for Super League this past winter and has already made an impression in the northern hemisphere, with eight tries taking him to the top of the scoring chart.

BBC Super League Show met up with Thompson before the weekend's win against Hull Kingston Rovers to find out his back-story and how he is settling into life in England's north west.

See the full piece with Widnes winger Corey Thompson on the Super League Show, BBC One on Monday 7 March at 23:45 GMT in the north of England.

The nationwide repeat follows at 13:00 GMT, BBC Two on Tuesday, 8 March and the show is available on the iPlayer all week.
