Being reported we are just about to sign Matterson on a 2 year deal. Great signing if true.

Better than what we have, but not what I would call a game breaker

Good signing in my opinion. Can play a few different positions too.

But the fact that he IS better than we have can only help.Im guessing it hasnt broken the bank either.

We've been in talks with him for a little while - all signs positive at this stage.

Great signing if true! Can cover SR CTR and a half spot if needed. Reminds me of what the roosters already have in Aubusson..
even better he’s a family friend.. and we definitely put a good word in 😉

Not sure how I feel about this signing.

Whenever I've seen him, he looks like he has no impact.

I think he is a great pick up , young , strong player , and he won't break the bank , plays a good running back row game and in a position we need to strengthen , this type of signing keeps money for a high Quality player we may bring over but has not weakened us , good balance buy

Id pay 50% more for TPJ who can actually influence a game tbh.
Dunno how we'll ever make the top 4 if other teams pinch our best players and we hire their discards(2 in a week from Easts)..has it really come to that?

Well TPJ would cost more than 50% more and money alone wouldn't even guarantee him. Newcastle are finding that out now.

Roosters are minor premiers. Its gotta start somewhere.

At least we aren't taking Parra's ISP players...

Jeez you're a hard marker. Sure he's being let go because they threw the cash at Crichton but let's not pretend this bloke is a fringe first grader. Can ably play centre, five-eighth or second row and has featured regularly in the last couple of years where the Chooks have finished in the top 2.

Except TPJ probably wouldn't come here at any price.

Good signing if it comes through. If so, our back row starters are settled - Rowdy on the left, Matterson on the right. MCK off the bench

Some are a bit ignorant of his talents.

Could be the best forward signing we've made in a while.
Its an opinion!
