The first year of the Tigers’ rebuild went a lot better than most expected, but there’s still plenty of work to be done.
Signing a young, highly regarded edge forward will be a huge step in the right direction, and that’s reportedly what they’ve done.
According to WWOS reporter The Mole, Wests have won the race to secure upcoming Roosters second-rower Ryan Matterson, who’s said to be “poised to sign a two-year deal”.
The nephew of Broncos legend Terry Matterson, Ryan will not only add a bit of starch out wide, but also adds utility value, having also played in the centres and halves during his time in the top grade.
Matterson has played 57 first grade games for the Roosters.
