Huddersfield Giants have completed the signing of Samoa international Suaia Matagi from the Parramatta Eels for the 2019 season.
The 30-year old is Simon Woolford’s first signing since taking over the reigns at the Giants at the end of April.
The prop forward has over 100 NRL games under his belt, having also spent time at the New Zealand Warriors, Sydney Roosters and Penrith Panthers.
Head coach Woolford says that Matagi will add bags of ‘grunt and aggression’, adding that he expects the powerhouse front-rower to quickly become a fans favourite at the John Smiths Stadium.
The Eels man also expressed his delight at the move, saying: “I am extremely excited to take my football to the next level under the leadership of Coach Simon Woolford and I’m also looking forward to the challenge of playing in the English Super League.
“Joining a proud Club like the Huddersfield Giants is a privileged and I will represent our fans to the best of my ability.”
