PLAYER BIO

AT A GLANCE

Junior club: Bullcreek Leeming (WA)
Recruited from: South Fremantle (WA) via 2010 17-year-old access selection to Gold Coast
AFL debut: Round 2, 2011, Gold Coast v Carlton
AFL clubs: Gold Coast, Fremantle (via 2017 trade period)
Career Brownlow votes: 9

From the recruiter (Brad Lloyd)
Matera is an exciting small forward with 101 games experience at the Gold Coast Suns. The 25-year-old played some of his career-best football in 2017, including a six-goal haul against Hawthorn in round three. The South Fremantle product was pre-listed by the Suns as a 17-year-old in 2010 and made his debut in Round 2, 2011 against Carlton at the Gabba.

“Brandon’s got genuine football nous, he’s a natural goal kicker and another good ball user. He is someone that can kick goals through the forward line and he’ll really add to our list.”
