Biography

After suffering a hamstring injury in a pre-season match against the Asia Pacific Dragons, Matt Hodgson missed the first 10 rounds of the 2015 season but returned to play a full 80 minutes against the Chiefs. The hard-nosed flanker is a breakdown technician and the skipper’s uncompromising approach to the contest is an inspiration to his teammates. Playing just seven games in 2015, Hodgson still cracked the top 40 in tackles for the entire competition with 108 at a 91 per cent success rate.
