Fijian winger joins Keighley

Keighley have announced the signing of Robert Matamosi on a one-year deal from West Wales Raiders.

Matamosi, 23, experienced his first rugby league game in 2016 after relocating to the United Kingdom from Fiji to join the British Army as a logistics engineer.

“I’m delighted to beat off stiff competition from the level above to secure Robert’s signature for next season,” said head coach Rhys Lovegrove:

“Not only has Robert got the talent, but more importantly he has the drive and ambition to become the best rugby league player he can be both and off the field.

“I like to think outside of the box with my recruitment process and there are talented players at expansion clubs that some of the traditional heartland clubs tend to not pay attention too.

“In the action we saw before lockdown, Dalton proved that and I’m hoping Robert will do the same once we return to action in 2021.”
