It’s easy to forget how young the centre-backrower is. Mata’utia has already accomplished so much in his young career.
While he spent most of his junior years in the back line, Mata’utia made the shift to the second row in 2016 and is set to be a versatile contributor to a new look Knights side.
As a leader, Mata’utia was named one of the Knights' youngest ever captains in round 8 of the 2017 season before becoming co-captain with Jamie Buhrer mid-way through the year.
While the captaincy now belongs to Mitchell Pearce, Mata’utia is a leader of the Club and standard bearer on the training paddock.
