The Super Rugby season is on hold so Matson, Sunwolves flanker Mitchell Jacobson and other members of the Hautapu Rugby Club have been helping out as security at Cambridge’s New World supermarket.
“Supermarkets are a war zone,” Matson told Radio Sport‘s D’Arcy Waldegrave.
“Over the plast four or five days, as people tried to hunker down, I think the supermarkets have been the focal point of a lot of attention.
“I’m really helping out for some of the guys on long, long shifts. I go in for a couple of hours so they can have a lunch break.”
