The Mole: Bulldogs try to sign Eels gun

Canterbury want to sign Eels star Ryan Matterson for 2022 - and have taken a significant step towards their goal by linking up with NSW Cup team Mounties as their feeder club.
Playing for Mounties is none other than Ryan’s younger brother Dean, who starred in a weekend trial against Penrith.
A 23-year-old five-eighth, Dean is extremely close to Ryan, who is three years older, and the pair have a goal of playing together in the NRL.
The duo have played one match together - for the Roosters in a trial in 2018 - before going their separate ways.
Ryan went to the Tigers and now Eels, while Dean moved to Wyong Roos, Blacktown Workers and now Mounties.
The Bulldogs have placed Ryan at the top of their wish list for next year - and having his brother on board may prove a major step to achieving their goal.
That won’t happen cause dean matterson is a very ordinary footballer
Ryan’s a very ordinary bloke
