Halfback

Bio

Taranaki halfback Brett Goodin was called into the Hurricanes midway through the 2008 Super 14 and flew to South Africa as a replacement for Wellington halfback Alby Mathewson.

Goodin was named on the bench for the Hurricanes' third and final match of their South African tour against the Cheetahs in Kimberley and earned his one cap for the side late in that game, as a substitute for Piri Weepu.

Goodin was a member of the Hurricanes Wider Training Group in 2008 following a strong season for Taranaki in the 2007 Air New Zealand Cup in which he competed with former Hurricane halfback Brendon Haami for the starting No. 9 spot for the Amber and Blacks.

New Plymouth Boys' High School educated, Goodin was a member of the New Zealand U19 team which won the 2004 IRB World Championship in Durban, a side coached by Hurricanes Assistant Coach Aussie Mclean and featuring fellow Hurricanes players Hikawera Elliot, Willie Ripia and Jeremy Thrush.

He was drafted into the Chiefs squad at the tail-end of the 2009 Super Rugby season as injury cover.

Goodin returned to Taranaki in the 2011 ITM Cup and was part of the squad that finished third in the ITM Cup Premiership division and that won the Ranfurly Shield off Southland.

He subsequently broke his leg early in 2012 playing club rugby, initially ruling him out of Taranaki's ITM Cup season, before making a fast recovery and featuring in several matches throughout the season, finishing the year on 75 career caps for Taranaki.

He transferred to Australia at the start of 2013, playing club rugby in Brisbane before he returned to Taranaki to continue playing for Coastal.
