    DRAGON FLIES TO ENGLAND

    Widnes have announced the signing of St George Illawarra forward Will Matthews on a two-year deal.

    Matthews, 29, has played 93 NRL games during stints with both Gold Coast and the Dragons.

    Vikings coach Denis Betts said: “We have been interested in Will for some time, so I am very pleased to have secured this deal.

    “Will is a quality player and will add a lot to the team with his experience of playing in the NRL.

    “He is strong and carries the ball well, but can also offload and support attacking plays effectively too."

    Good luck to him, was a solid back up player when needed.

    Sorry to see him go. Always gave 100%. Still remember a crunching tackle he made on Sam Thaiday, almost chopped him in half.

    Under a good coach I think he can really be something great. Disappointed to see him go but it wasn't unexpected.

    Full of guts, gave his all, never let us down... thats all one could ask.
    I wish him all the best, he deserves a good break and hopefully will find it in the ESL.
    Thanks Will.

    Just 10% short on everything to make him a very good NRL player. Then again he is the sort of player Bellamy turns into very good NRL players.

    Shame he got injured in the CS.

    Would have come in handy during the year. All the best and should do well.

    At least he now will have a coach.

    He should have gone to sharks when he had the chance.
