Suaia Matagi

Adding both size and experience, Suaia Matagi brings a new dimension to the Tigers forward pack in 2021.

The ex-New Zealand and Samoa international moves to The Mend-A-Hose Jungle on a one-year loan from Huddersfield Giants, where he has become a regular force in the Betfred Super League following spells with New Zealand Warriors, Sydney Roosters, Penrith Panthers and Parramatta Eels in the NRL.

One of the pack leaders during his time at the Giants, Matagi is a no-nonsense front-rower who stands at 6ft 2in and tips the scales at 17 stone, with head coach Daryl Powell excited about his potential to “dismantle defensive lines” for the Fords.
