Matterson can play big minutes on an edge and in my humble opinion would be more effective in this role rather than at lock.

I agree, plus we can cover lock with ET, we have no edge backrowers other than Rowdy and Garner, MCK as a reserve in the 17
Go hard or go home

Feki is no better than Nofo or Thompson..if you upgrade generally that means better than what you already have a no sence signing .
You must of missed the Roosters, Sharks semi.
I sincerely doubt Nofo or Thompson could have scored Fekis first try.
I’ve watched more than one game and I disagree.

Wonder if we'll use Matterson as a lock, he wants more game time apparently can play in the middle has the size mobility and ball skills.
You could be right, though our right edge is much more of an issue and Ryan spending a regular eighty minutes there would seem a better use of his skills at this stage.

Absolutely love corey as a player and person.I think Feki SHADES him though.

Best back row forward signing since Ellis
:shock: settle down..

Great signing certainly adds depth to a few positions.....definite First Grader..till he drops the ball the 1st time...lol
He will be Hobb's new beast

It will be MCWho

We have 3-4 players who can cover lock and no one who can play right second row. But sure, let's waste a key signing and play him out of position for giggles

The initial rumours suggested it would be a 2 year contact but it has been announced as 3. Great news and pretty interesting that it extends one year after the end of Cleary’s contract.

Could he be turned into a big hard running centre ?

Perhaps, but from what I saw last night you want him touching the ball as much as possible.

Shoudl be used as an edge 2nd Rower who also has a job to come in and take hit ups in the middle.

Agree, you definitely want him with his hand on the ball as often as possible. His online defence was great last night. And at a pinch if needed he can slot into 5/8 if Reynolds etc gets injured during a game. Quality pick up.
No more plodders!

Thought Ryan got monstered a bit last night by the big Souths forwards when he took the ball up. He ran hard as usual, but didn't seem to be going forward much at all.

Impressed Every time I saw him play.
Really puts in both in attack and defence.

Three tackles he made - one after the other in front of his posts were brilliant last night.
