💥 England international Matty Lees has established himself as an outstanding prop forward…

Playing his amateur rugby at Rochdale Mayfield and joined the club at the age of 16. His First Team debut followed at Wakefield in 2017, but he broke into the senior squad a year later playing 19 times for Justin Holbrook’s side.

Matty went from strength to strength in 2019, playing long and impressive minutes in the forward pack. He was named Super League’s Young Player of the Year and also took away the same award at the Saints Awards Dinner.

Unfortunately, his season was cut short and he missed out on the Wembley Challenge Cup Final and Super League Grand Final after he perforated a bowel against Leeds Rhinos. Wayne Bennett had confirmed he would have been called up for Great Britain had he not picked up the injury.

Lees recovered from his injury in 2020 and was often utilised as a starting prop, playing 20 times in total as he picked up his second Grand Final ring.

Matty was a regular in 2021 and his performances helped Saints win a third Super League Grand Final in a row and a first Challenge Cup for 13 years!

No longer a prospect but an outright star prop, Lees has grown his reputation for big match minutes by a middle. A consistent performer too with his strong work rate in 2022, and his reward came on the biggest stage by scoring the opening try in the Saints’ fourth in a row Grand Final victory.

2023 began brilliantly for the Saints #10, laying down a marker of intent in the World Club Challenge with his first tackle. History followed as the Red V beat Penrith Panthers to bring home our Club’s third World Title! Throughout the 2023 campagin, with injuries and suspensions during the year, Lees continued stepping up and showed he is one of the world’s best in his position.
