LEICESTER have confirmed youngster Joe Thompson will join twin brother Dan back in the Lions’ line-up next season.
Thompson stepped up to the Championship for the first time this year and boss Stewart Dickson says he can make use of that experience for further improvement in 2022.
Said Dickson: “There was only one place Joe was going to come back, which was to us – there’s more to achieve, and he can build on things next season.
“I know he was maybe overshadowed by Dan a couple of times, but to go from a two to a three-and-a-half in your first season is pretty good going
“Pretty much like Dan, we need to get his gating sorted. He’s very fast around the track, and sometimes you actually like to see him miss the gate at Beaumont Park because of the way he sweeps round the outside!
“I know there’s more to come from him, but we need to make things a bit easier for the two boys – but they should fear no-one.”
