    Excerpts from Mat's official bio page (7/31/18):

     

    "Representing Australia in both Rugby League and Rugby Union, Mat has an almost unparalleled sporting history. Son to a former Australian Rugby League Captain, it seemed inevitable that Mat would follow in his famous father’s footsteps. In his career as a professional Rugby League footballer for the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks, Mat surpassed his father’s record as the greatest point scorer in the club’s history. 

    “Rugby was a huge part of my life, not just League but also playing Union, and set me up with some good skills that I think will help me with Survivor. Discipline, competitiveness and a sometimes stubborn drive to win.” 

    After a huge career representing Queensland and Australia in League, Mat changed codes to Union in 2001 playing for NSW and Australia before returning to the NRL to play with the Gold Coast Titans. 

    In 2011, Mat stepped away from sport in order to follow another passion – raising money and awareness for children with autism. In 2009, Mat and his wife, model Chloe Maxwell, founded 4 ASD Kids a charity born out of their first-hand experience with their son’s autism disorder. 

    Wanting to stay true to his word and be a team player, Mat knows that the island will bring out his competitive edge saying, “It’s called Survivor and that’s what I’m there for. I’m there to survive and I want to win. It won’t be easy for me to break alliances or not tell everyone the truth but I’m going to try.” "
