Matthew Gary Moulds (born 15 May 1991) is a New Zealand rugby union player who currently plays as a hooker for Worcester Warriors in the Gallagher Premiership. He previously playued for Northland in the Mitre 10 Cup and the Blues in Super Rugby.[1][2][3][4][5] He has also previously represented New Zealand at rugby sevens.[6]

Club career

Moulds started out his senior career with Northland Taniwha during the 2013 ITM Cup and quickly established himself as a regular member of their starting fifteen. 2014 was a good year for both the Taniwha, who finished 3rd in the Championship standings with 5 wins and 5 losses and for Moulds, who played 10 times and scored 2 tries.

2015 and 2016 saw Moulds captain the Taniwha in what turned out to be 2 disappointing campaigns where they languished near the foot of the log and struggled to find wins. As captain, however, he was a guaranteed starter and made 16 appearances across the 2 seasons, scoring 1 try.[2]

Impressive performances at provincial level were rewarded in 2015, when he was named in the Blues wider training group for the 2015 Super Rugby season.[7] He made 1 appearance in his debut season, as a replacement in a match against the Stormers, but further good domestic performances saw him upgraded to the Blues full squad for 2016. The presence of experienced hookers in the shape of All Black James Parsons and the well-traveled Quentin MacDonald meant game time was again at a premium for Moulds who had to take the role of third choice rake for the Blues. He did get on the field twice during the season, with both appearances coming from the replacements bench.[2]

Moulds was again named in the Blues squad for 2017 where he would compete with Parsons and Waikato newcomer Hame Faiva for the number 2 shirt.[4]

On 25 April 2019, Moulds moved to England to join Gallagher Premiership side Worcester Warriors on an undisclosed-length deal from the 2019-20 season.[8]

International career

Moulds was a member of the New Zealand sevens wider training squad in early 2014 and was part of the side which competed in the Wellington Sevens in February 2014.[9]
