Spot on. Leilua alone is not worth swapping for Matto. Not a chance. Leilua and Lomax as you said for Matto sounds more reasonable.I’d prefer Jackson Ford instead of Leilua if we’re looking at young Dragons backrowers.
I see Matto in a similar value range as players like Crichton, Murray, Radley, Frizell, TPJ. He’s carrying on like a pork chop but the kid can sure play.
Just to add something on and someone might’ve already touched on this but losing Matto isn’t just losing a starting backrower. Matterson has a fair bit of utility value, he covers back row, lock, 5/8 and can has played in the centres. Gives the bench a bit of flexibility and injury cover.
