    Matthew Cross
    Date of Birth : 26 April, 1981
    Height : 193 cm
    Weight : 110 kg
    Position : Front row, back row
    Rep. Honours : Nil
    Junior Clubs : Batemans Bay Tigers
    Previous Clubs : Parramatta 2003-04, Penrith 2005-07, Gold Coast 2008
    FG Debut : Penrith v North Queensland, Dairy Farmers, 23/7/05 (Rd 20)
    Club Debut : N/A
    Career: Born in Wagga Wagga, Cross, the younger brother of former Storm premiership winner Ben, played his junior rugby league at Batemans Bay. Scouted by Parramatta, Cross spent two years at the Eels, before making a name for himself at Penrith. He made his first grade debut in 2005 for the Panthers. Moved to the Gold Coast Titans last year but played most of the season in the Queensland Cup. Will be looking to get back to the big time this year.

    Preview: Cross will be keen to step out of younger brother Ben’s shadow in Melbourne and create his own legacy at the Storm. Big, strong and tireless, Cross will provide extra grunt to the Storm’s engine room in 2009. Will battle the likes of Jeff Lima, Brett White and Adam Blair for time up front, and could play a similar role to the one Antonio Kaufusi had in 2008.

    I feel that Mat Cross will be a very similar replacement to Glen Hall, a player who has been to a few clubs, shows potential, but just can't seem to crack into first grade on a regular basis. I think once we get the training staff onto him he will be a good toiler.

    For anyone struggling to remember the bloke, in our game at Brookvale this season, Choc absolutely smashed him, only for him to score 2 tackles later

    Easy to see the Dessie thinking in this.

    Cross can play in the front or 2nd rows. Defensively sound with high tackle rate of 20 tackles from an average of 40 minutes per game. Missed tackle rate OK and minimal errors. Decent meterage. Maybe a late bloomer and maybe cheap.

    Cross will be fine, he wont have been signed as a top 17 player, simply a depth signing
