Matt Srama (born 12 January 1991) is a Filipino Australian professional rugby league footballer for the Gold Coast Titans of the National Rugby League. He primarily plays hooker, but can also fill in at five-eighth.

Background[edit]

Born in Brisbane, Queensland, Srama played his junior football for the Centenary Panthers before being signed by the Gold Coast Titans.

In June 2014, Srama re-signed with the Titans on a 2-year contract.[7]

In November 2014, Srama was told he was free to leave the Titans by head coach Neil Henry, as he would be overlooked for other players in the NRL side.[8]
