Huddersfield sign Samoa’s Matagi
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.”
