Related to the famous Matterson family that played with Wests, Terry Matterson started his career in the Magpies' lower grades in 1984 before joining the Roosters. Coming to the Broncos in 1988, he started with a club record 24-point haul against Manly. Regarded at first as merely a goal-kicker or utility forward, Matterson's consistency in open-play saw him secure the first grade lock position at Brisbane. In 1989 he was a reserve forward for NSW in the third State of Origin match. Matterson kicked four goals in Brisbane's 1992 grand final win over St George and was judged to be the man-of-the-match in the club's historic victory in the World Club Championship against Wigan. In 1993 he overcame a painful shoulder dislocation injury to take his place in Brisbane's second successive grand final success but injuries shorted his career in Australia. Matterson, who held the record for most career points with the club (since bettered by Michael De Vere and Darren Lockyer), joined the London Broncos in 1995.

Your Say

  • Kev

    Calm and cool goal kicker. A five eight styled lock. A great player

  • Dean

    He had a blinder playing for London against the raiders in the world club challenge in 1997.

  • stan

    Terry was one of the brainest players the broncoes have ever had.. Some players play the game in front of them -- some can see several moves ahead.. Terry was like that.. Similar in some respects to Wally..
