Mathew head

Mathew Head (born 9 May 1982 in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales) is a former Australian professional rugby league player for the St. George Illawarra Dragons. He previously played for the Wests Tigers in the National Rugby League (NRL) and Hull F.C. in Super League. He primarily played at half-back.


St. George Illawarra Dragons

Head began his professional rugby league career in 2003. He was the 2004 St. George Illawarra Dragons season's top point-scorer. Head's career has been plagued by recurring knee injuries, thus leaving the club at the end of the 2007 season.


In 2007, Head signed for Hull F.C. until the end of that season in a bid to help the club reach the Super League play-offs but injuries restricted his performance and availability for matches.

Wests Tigers

In November 2007, after announcing his desire to return to Australia, Head was signed by the Wests Tigers on a one-year contract. Fitness levels and injuries again limited his time on field during the 2008 season.

Return to the St. George Illawarra Dragons

In August 2008, Head agreed to a return to the Dragons in 2009. Since being signed by St George Illawarra, Head was generally assigned to play for St George Illawarra's feeder club (the Shellharbour Dragons) in the position of halfback or five-eighth, rather than first grade. His contract with the Dragons was not renewed and he has since returned to his junior team Dapto Canaries and became their captain coach in the 2010 season.

Career highlights

  • First Grade Debut: Round 3, St George Illawarra v Canberra, Canberra Stadium, 29 March 2003
  • Coaching career

    In 2017, he will become the Illawarra Cutters coach. They play in the NSW Cup. He was previously the Balmain Tigers SG Ball Head Coach (2013–15) and under 20's coach for the St George Illawarra Dragons club (2016).
