Picture: Matthew FurneauxTHE professional influence of Melbourne Storm games recordholder Matt Geyer is something the North West Wolves will hope to learn from after a dominant 42-point win against Craigieburn on Saturday.
The Wolves’ winning start to the Victorian Rugby League season is up to four games after the 52-10 win at AJ Davis Reserve in Niddrie.
Geyer scored tries and played a creative role in the Wolves’ victory, entertaining the assembled crowd for the biggest day in the club’s history, save for last season’s grand final.

“I’m not going to give you a mark out of 10 but I had a ball,” Geyer, 36, said.
“They’re a great bunch of blokes and it created a bit of a buzz to be here.
“We were having a laugh in the sheds [about white line fever].
“I didn’t go out there to show Craigieburn I’m awesome, but at the end I was chasing guys down and we were up by 40.
“The main thing today was getting exposure for the Wolves and the VRL. I can give [the coach] feedback on the players directly on what players are like on the field.
“I love playing, I enjoyed it. I play a lot of masters old boys versus old boys so to play against some young fit guys was a little bit daunting after nearly three years.
“Obviously you’re a bit rusty but hopefully you can leave an impression during training and the game.”
