Mat, brought up in Barrow with Ade, said:"It's always been a dream of mine to play against my elder brother and this could be the time it becomes a reality. There's also a big chance we could be meeting head-on on the wing and that would be fantastic. I was pleased with my performance at Wakefield, I just hope Jon Sharp was pleased too - that's obviously the key to me playing against Saints."
