Biography

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.
