Wes Goosen

Utility Back

Bio

Goosen is an ever present attacking threat due to his pace and strength.

The South African born back is capable of playing in the midfield or wing. A strong fend and very quick feet make him a handful for any defence.

The former New Zealand Schools and Under-20 rep made his Hurricanes debut against the Reds and scored a try with his first touch after just 14 minutes.

He continue to push for a starting spot and his form near the end of 2017 proved too good for the coaching team to ignore.

His second year with the Hurricanes proved to be a frustrating one as he suffered an ankle injury in the first compeition match against the Bulls. He then fractured his jaw during his comeback match against the Chiefs.

However, he returned for the last few weeks of the competition.
