Biography:

A prized off-season recruit for Wests Tigers, Ben Matulino will be looking to stake his claim as one of the best front rowers in the world after a knee injury in 2017.

After missing the start of the year, Matulino played 16 games in 2017 and got better as the year wore on — leaving many fans excited about the prospect of him at Wests Tigers in 2018.

With more than 200 games NRL experience and 23 Tests for the Kiwis, Matulino will provide plenty of experience to Wests Tigers in 2018 as he links up with former teammates Russell Packer and Elijah Taylor — who made it to a Grand Final last time they played together.
