Ryan Matterson Ruled Out against Dragons

Ryan Matterson has been ruled out of tomorrow's clash against the Dragons due to ongoing concussion rehabilitation.. I'm not sure who is his replacement but I would suggest maybe Hipgrave.

The following is from the Eels Website:

Parramatta Eels second rower Ryan Matterson has been ruled out of tomorrow’s Round Five clash against the St George Illawarra Dragons suffering ongoing symptoms of concussion. 

The Club has been closely monitoring Ryan since the incident in Round Two and as a precaution he will miss tomorrow’s game. The Eels’ playing squad will be updated at 6:15pm.

  • Oh come on!  He loses more weeks than the grub that did this to him.

    • Exactly! If it continues to be a health problem for him it could easily lead to an early retirement which wouldn't surprise me.

    • Yep, it's complete BS, that was a send off and straight to the judiciary for 8-10 weeks. Cannot believe there is somehow a worse Grade than that !!!!! Do you have to decapitate someone to get the highest grading??

      • Decapiting ? No but in reverse ,  it was a punishment under French rugby rules until they banned the guilotine. 

    • Yep no justice at all in the system.

      How many weeks do you get for throwing a punch?

    • A real shit go by the NRL how they let the dirty cunt off with a slap on the wrist.

      I hope he gets a season/career ending injury this week, if not soon.

    • Exactly EE

  • Easy replacement in Papa

  • This was always going to be an issue if he got concussed again.

    Very happy to see the club taking a precautious approach and not rushing players back before they're ready

  • Papa in - Stone or Hipgrave bench

"So many biases in commentary land.
I must be out of touch, or maybe I am just getting old, but I can’t see how that Papali tackle was a send off. It wasn’t one of those coat hanger shoots, penalty yes ok, but straight off? "
