Can anyone tell me Steve Matai's background. Where he came from and where he was born, stuff like that. I hadn't even heard of him 1 month ago. Was he playing for the Manly reserve grade and then moved up to first grade???
Whats the story?
I understood that he was a Kiwi who was playing in the QLD cup. Came to Manly to trial but was behind the current centres and Karl Johnson, Ashley Alberts etc. Saw on ME that he was living with Sgt's family.
Had some impressive form, especially in defence in lower grades and got the call up when Tezz was injured!
