Ruck coach / Midfield assistant
Matthew joined Werribee as a playing ruck coach/midfield assistant ahead of the 2020 season.
The former Port Adelaide and Carlton big man reunites with Mark 'Choco' Williams at Werribee, the coach who drafted him to the Power back in 2007.
A respected leader and elite ruckman at his best, Matt is fresh out of the AFL system after 100 games (92 Port Adelaide, 8 Carlton) and over a decade at the top level.
Matt will lead an inexperienced and exciting ruck brigade in 2020, with the likes of Darcy Bennett, Jack Blair, Tylar Watts and Edyn Sibbald all set to develop under his tutelage.
Away from football, Matt is a mental health ambassador and has also been heavily involved in youth and community programs.
