In October 2013, Leicester Tigers signed Matera on a short-term deal until the end of the season after a spell with Pampas XV.

Matera only made eight appearances for Tigers due to a combination of international call-ups, injuries and also his coach’s reluctance to throw him in the deep end of the Premiership.
