Everyone’s talking about the big names in the NRL that have made the move to a rival club.
Shaun Johnson, Angus Crichton and a bunch of other stars will run out wearing different jerseys this season and all are expected to make a big impact.
But for all the big name signings, there are a few shrewd signings who I believe have slipped under the radar.
1. Ryan Matterson (Sydney Roosters to Wests Tigers)
Ryan Matterson started his career playing five-eighth in the lower grades at Parramatta and was touted for big things before making the switch to the Roosters.
Matterson made his debut in 2016 and notched up 60 games as a Mr-fix-it including last year’s Grand Final victory, playing in the halves, back row and at centre.
The utility is a versatile pick-up for the Wests Tigers who could easily slot him into their starting back row.
