Five things you didn't know about Matt Gordon

Five things you didn't know about Matt Gordon

Matt Gordon joined the club this past summer and made his debut in last season's final 1872 Cup match-up. Here are five things you didn't know about the Aussie centre.

Athletics was his focus

"Growing up rugby was probably second fiddle to my athletics. I was a national shot put and discus thrower and that was probably more of a focus than rugby was."

An academic away from rugby

"I have done a bit of study away from rugby, I have a bachelor of business degree majoring in Human Resources. And over the lockdown I got a bit bored so I decided to start a masters degree."

He's experienced the real world

"Before heading over to the UK last year to play for London Scottish, I took a bit of time away from footy and worked full-time in the HR side of things mainly just doing some mining and labour recruitment kind of work.

"It gave me a good perspective on how lucky we are to be full-time athletes when you have worked a 9-5 job every day!"

He's a 90s cinephile

"Away from rugby I’m a bit of a movie nut - especially 90’s movies. I try and watch an older movie most weeks when I’m having a bit of down time.

"Anything with Adam Sandler in it. The Green Mile and Goodfellas are personal favourites!"

He couldn't think of a fifth fact...

"Struggling for content here... I’ve discovered I’m not all that interesting! Haha"
