After arriving as our marquee player at the start of the 2016 season, Matt played in only two games before a serious injury in the Dewsbury mud halted his season before it had barely started. Ironically he started his professional career with Dewsbury, but made a significant impact for the Lions when he played during our 2013 campaign at Leigh Sports Village. Swinton maintained their Championship status that year, when Matt chipped in with 8 tries in 16 impressive appearances from second-row. Leigh saw his huge potential and took him from the Lions, and he became an integral part of their impressive line-up before an injury problem disrupted his 2015 campaign. In early 2016 he joined Salford, but he also played number of games on loan at Halifax. Matt is a no-nonsense, tough and highly-skilled back-rower that gets on with his role but always wants to get better. He is Super League quality and can now become a very influential player for the Lions.
