Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - RUGBY LEAGUE -

SU­PER LEAGUE: Hud­der­s­field have an­nounced the sign­ing of prop Suaia Matagi from NRL club Par­ra­matta Eels for the 2019 Su­per League sea­son.

The 30-year-old, who started his ca­reer at New Zealand War­riors be­fore spells with Syd­ney Roost­ers and Pen­rith Pan­thers, rep­re­sented Samoa at last year’s World Cup.

Matagi be­comes Si­mon Wool­ford’s first re­cruit since he took over as Gi­ants head coach.

“I was look­ing for some real grunt and ag­gres­sion in the front row and Suaia will bring that and a whole heap more,” said Wool­ford.

“The fans will love his ac­tion­packed style and he is a man that won’t take a back­ward step and he rel­ishes the tough stuff up front.”
