RuggaMatrix International 022 – Matt Dunning

Here’s a bonus show with plenty to chew on. Wallabies and Waratahs prop Matt Dunning joins the RuggaMatrix honour roll this week for a special interview only episode of RuggaMatrix.

Often maligned, Dunning is rated highly by RuggaMatrix as a player and person. He still lives at Berowra, north of Sydney with his family and will strike up a conversation with anyone. On the field, as you can see by this SMP Image, he takes no prisoners. He’s just about ready to make a comeback from Achilles tendon surgery after the turf slipped beneath his feet during the Barbarians game last year. He talks about that injury setback and decision not pursue legal action and we discuss his contract renewal which is currently a hot subject.

Dunning throws up a couple of radical ideas about player contracts and assesses some of the competition in the Super 14 as the season draws to a conclusion. He wants to be part of the action if the Waratahs make the semis. And why not? Matt Dunning has been stuck on 99 caps for NSW since the end of last year’s Super 14.
