190cm, 95kg 25 year old centre 8 tries in 15 games and nephew of Jesse Sene Lafoa
Did well on the wing for the Cowboys- played right up until rd 23 last year and would've been in their GF team if not for injury. A good buy.
good ... he is samoan... no chance at soo selection
I don't know about NZ, supposedly he went to Gold Coast on a holiday as a kid and was seen kicking a league ball in a park so it seems he played his first footy in QLD.
Considering we can't discuss in the signings thread I thought I would start a new one Apparently Matthew Wright of the Cowboys and previously Sharks could be linking with Manly on a 2 year deal before June 30 For mine a good pickup as I don't think Ramien or Parker are ready and Williame, Satini, Lavaka and Goodall do not inspire a lot of confidence Wright would be solid backup for the back 5
Have seen a fair bit of Wright & though far from a match winner, looks fairly reliable & probably a fair backup. Plays fullback/centre/winger with winger the position I believe he will be when playing top grade at Manly.
He is a solid back-up but way too slow to be a permanent fixture in our side. We are already carrying "slowish" centres and this guy will make Taufua look like Usain Bolt.
Though he got pinged for the cronulla asada drugs ban, it was interesting to read his thoughts which were: 1)He was the only one to have to serve actual game bans (I think) 2) There was a meeting and the coaching team said here...take this! They all decided to which was bad. dunno about his play though...will check out the you tube highlights which never lie!
Matthew Wright Personal information Nickname Wrighty Born 30 January 1991 (age 25) Auckland, New Zealand Height 190 cm (6 ft 3 in) Weight 95 kg (14 st 13 lb)
Is he as 'good' as Williame?
should be 'lefty!'
Same as GI then
Well if he is coming to replace Killer, then his imaginative nickname will be wRighty
Is it a stupid question but why are we buying another centre, we are already squeezing 3 into our team as it is, we need a 5/8 more than another centre
Our buying isn't finished, and we needed better depth. Also the powers believe that Walker will make the grade.
Could it be he is there to help the hapless Willow and NSW Cup without Moltzen, who will probably return only to break something new? Also, with Isaac John injured, Jamie Buhrer (always injured) we may need some depth down there.
He isn't being signed as a starter but rather first drop for back line depth
