Yes great signing, I’ve always rated him and he will definitely bolster our pack. Hilarious some experts on here had to google him to find out who he was lol. My 11 year old got excited when I told him.

Given the quality of the player, in this day and age I find a '2 year' contract a bit strange.

Maybe the tigers are concerned about his concussions or he wants to know who our coach is post 2020. I just thought we would seeking a 3+ commitment from someone like Matterson...

Either way, very happy with this signing. Astute.
In this case 2 year signing is a safe bet for both parties.
He would not hVe cost us overs ..... so all good.

Man if we can get Klemmer our forwards might actually start scaring some teams for the first time in a VERY long while.

I like the look of that right edge, Matterson adds a bit of skill to compliment the power of Marsters and Nofoaluma - it looks nicely balanced.

I actually like the idea of a 2 year contract for a player like Matterson. It prevents us from being stuck with a dud if he doesn't kick on and keeps the pl player on his toes should he want an extension. If we as a club do the right thing by him and provide a solid culture, he will hopefully want to play on with us.

Very good point.That would be one of the better right edge combos in the comp.Try scoring was a real problem for us this year.With matterson there our problems would ease a great deal.

Good signing and good period as well. He'll walk straight into our starting side so for he may have been willing to take what was on offer for the opportunity to feature more regularly.

2 years seems to be the right amount of time to bring in players from other clubs on. Long term "marquee" signings have crippled us in the past by way of players being a terrible fit for our club, or simply just unlucky with injuries.

I saw on twitter a story that TPJ was happy to take "less" to stay with Broncos. And by "less", I mean less under the cap but I'm sure he'd be looked after in true Broncos style, And something about him having a go at Sticky Stuart saying he would never make Firsts.

Edwards, Matherson would be nice. But I'm betting we land a Merrin or a Tamou. That's more IC's style.
I wouldn't say no to either Tamou or Merrin - experienced, rep quality players as opposed to Matterson who hasn't really been all that impressive, imo.
I know which of the three I would take and looks like we have.

The other two are has beens - no impact, non hard working light of other days.

Oh why aren't there more signings, 2-3 Mbye-type signings per year? The offseason is almost a week old and I haven't heard anything about signings, why can't we have more signings, I mean Dogs signed CHN and they are under cap pressure, Tigers aren't being linked to anyone, I'm so depressed with these lack of signings.

Oh... Tigers reportedly signed Matterson this week... good signing!

Everyone should just calm down shouldn't they. Let's wait and see who we put on the park next year.
