Experienced NRL forward Will Matthews may be frustrated with his stop-start 2019 season because of injury and ponders his future past this year, but in the meantime he is a trump-card  for the Seagulls in Sunday’s elimination semi-final against Redcliffe Dolphins.

The 31-year-old who has made 111-NRL appearances is not sure what his future is at the Titans but remains  focussed on being a key leader of the Seagulls this week and beyond and has made a big impact in the seven Intrust Super Cup matches he has played this season.

Matthews told the Gold Coast Bulletin that if he isn’t re-signed by the Titans he would look at continuing with the Seagulls and the club would love to have the respected natural leader beyond this season.

“It’s been very frustrating because of a lot of little niggling injuries [this season]; one thing led to another and I haven’t been able to play much,” he said.

“But my body is all good now so hopefully I can finish the year strong.

“We have a good side so I feel like we could cause some upsets there in the finals.

“I like to be a leader there; I’m an old head now so I try and help the boys if I can.”
