Top Points Scorer Sam Tomkins

Rugby league - Super League - 01 Feb 19:45

Luke Gale of Castleford is a worthy favourite in this market, he's been top points scorer for the last 2 season. I've made my intentions clear that Castleford are worth taking on this season though, I don't think they will be as good or as high scoring as usual this season with personal and positional changes.

Luke Gale is there to be shot at in my opinion at just 7/4 and at 9/1 Sam Tomkins is good value against him.

During pre-season Wigan made a shrewd move to address their goal kicking issues, hiring the services of former Rugby Union goal kicker Charlie Hodgson. He was sent off to work with Sam Tomkins, Morgan Escare, Sam Powell & George Williams to find a new number one goal kicker for 2018.

When asked a few weeks back how they were getting on the Wigan head coach said "Sam Tomkins is winning the battle". Then in the final warm up game where Wigan fielded their best side Sam Tomkins was on kicking duty and scored 2 from 3 conversions.


Sam Tomkins being on kicking duty in Wigan's final warm up game with the best team out surely seals it then, Sam Tomkins on kicking duty for Wigan this season. Providing he can convert them I think he should be in the mix for top points scorer this year as Wigan will score a lot of tries.

I also like the fact that Sam Tomkins will chip in with a lot of tries, he scored 12, 26, 28 & 23 tries in the 2010-2013 seasons. Two years in Australia and two years with injury issues haven't helped him but if he gets back to that level now fit he could score more tries than Luke Gale who's only scored 10, 11, 6 & 13 in his last 4 seasons.

There's no way he's a 9/1 shot now he's set to take over kicking duties for Wigan, providing his kicking remains up to scratch and he stays fit he's a major player.
