Biography

Matthew has fought for several seasons against injuries, particularly to his right leg. He was a No 8 forward before the Ospreys Academy turned him into a centre. He left Aberavon in the summer of 2017 to join the Scarlets, but played for Llanelli RFC and scored 14 tries, then returned two years later. He was then out of action for two years and nine months with injury, but he returned in September 2021 against Newport in a friendly and the following week he scored a try at Llandovery. His father was a senior police officer.
