A Tauranga City Sharks junior, Thompson played rugby league with Keebra Park High when his family moved to Australia. In 2008 he played for the Gold Coast Titans Toyota Cup side.

Thompson made his National Rugby League debut for the Gold Coast Titans in Round 9, 2009, making 3 appearances from the bench that year. He made 17 appearances in 2010, including 2 semis, and signed a deal with the club that lasted until the end of the 2014 season, however, he was subsequently released from this contract in 2012 and signed a two-year deal with rival club Wests Tigers commencing in 2013.

Having knocked back an offer to join the Tigers in 2007, Thompson had said, "I had the (Wests Tigers) offer there (in 2007) but I'm a family man and like to be around my family. We had only just moved over so I didn't want to shoot off somewhere else as soon as we got here." Thompson felt compelled to change clubs as he was behind Greg Bird, Ashley Harrison, andNate Myles for a spot in the back-row.

Thompson played in 15 games for the Wests Tigers in 2013. He mostly played in the second-row, but finished the season in the centres.

On 1 November 2014, Thompson signed a 3-year contract with the New Zealand Warriors starting in 2015.
