Very good debut from him and got through 53 minutes tonight. I don't think Cleary would normally have played him that long, but Grant injured his hammy from the look of it. There's some potential there for sure as a front row/backrow option.

Sirro you kill me. ET killed them at lock today. We could play two locks but I think why not just play our best lock and basically our best player at lock. ET to lock and build a team around him.
Mate, I have to agree with Sirro. If ET is lock I don't think he can play 80.
80 on the edge or 50-60 in the middle.
I won't bag the guy, he is an utter professional and has an attitude our club has lacked for years (I.e. Professional)

I agree that ET shouldn't be playing 80 in the middle as well.

I think this side needs ET to play on an edge & lock it down for 80. Yes it was only his 1st game but Matty E. showed tonight he is more than capable in the middle & I think we've found someone who can make a real impact for us at lock. A backrow of ET, McQueen & Eisenhuth is looking good for next year!

Does anyone know off the top of their head if he's contracted for next season?

193m on debut is ridiculous

He got caught out a bit on that Townsend try and the pass at the end was dumb, but otherwise he was hugely impressive, especially as a debutant.

The more i think about this the more i think this was an outstanding debut. Not just because he set up a try and made plenty of metres, but because he looked like the leader of the pack. He went out there and demanded the ball, sometimes twice a set. He was talking all the time, taking ownership of himself and others. Very impressive.

2 mistakes by him unfortuntaley that were costly, but i have no doubt he's the type to learn very quickly from them, unlike Sue.

Funny, he has been here 2 years and we have seen the same nufties rotated through the team while he watches on. I remember people talking him up in pre-season saying he was the round 1 smokey. Has taken 14 games to see him get to top grade, while Lovett, Edwards, Sue, MCK all cycle through failing to make any impact.

Hope they get him re-signed soon.

Played extremely well Ivan and the bean counters should be talking to him on monday in regards to his contract being extended till end of 2020.He was the highlight out of the game for me get him onboard asap.Unlike some of the nuffies who have been used before him he looks like a first grade forward

TBF Cleary has only been here a couple of months and is probably still evaluating the entire club, people have said before he seems to be using similar systems and cattle to JT and just trying to tweak things slightly as not to upset the apple cart.
But in the last few weeks we have seen guys like Marsters, Eisenhuth ect come into the system. Perhaps it has taken him this long to evaluate. Knowing we have had guys like him in the system with JT is a bit frustrating while guys like Lovett and MCK get selected week in week out.

He got injured late in the pre-season otherwise would have played from round 1. JT was a big fan, hence why he promoted him from part time contract (last year) to full time contract this year. He hasn't been here for 2 years. 2016 was his first season and as stated he was only on a part time contract.

One good thing about ME is that he has height and, given his injuries in his career to date, with proper consistent gym work he can probably put some more meat on as well.

He looks one of those players every team needs. A very good first grader without being a superstar (and requiring superstar wages).

Interestingly, I assume Pascoe signed him last year after their association at the Panthers. I also wonder whether it was IC that signed him at Panthers from Parramatta, when he was cut by Stuart.

He has the potential to be our Paul Vaughn IMO.

After last night this could be one more piece of the puzzle that is in place ..Matt certainly has a big motor and some ball playing ability ,I like his hieght as a forward with that off load .As others have said how that oxygen thief Lovett and the other band of Nuffies have kept him out of the team is a mystery .Could this be a real find that is already in the system now that would be nice ....I want him in the team next week thank you!
