Biography:

Knight #331

Strong and powerful forward Leo Thompson has continually impressed since his arrival in 2022 becoming a mainstay in the Knights forward pack.

Having grown up in New Zealand playing rugby union, Leo moved to Australia to play for the Canberra Raiders pathways teams in 2020 before moving to the Knights in 2022.

The identical twin brother of Super Rugby player, Tyrone, Leo earned selection for the Maori All Stars at the start of the 2023 campaign and was recently rewarded with a contract extension tying him to the Club until 2025.

During the 2023 season, Thompson only missed the one game claiming the Club's Knight in Shining Armour award while capping off the season with his Test debut for New Zealand.
