Biography

Snowy-haired Balmain winger played in all three Tests on the Australian tour of NZ in 1935 after being a late call-up to the squad. A prolific try-scorer, Goodwin crossed for a club-record five tries in a match against University that year. Four years later Goodwin captained the Tigers to a grand final win over Souths after scoring a record 6 tries in an interstate match for NSW. The advent of World War II unfortunately stopped any chance of furthering his Test career and he later joined Newtown, playing in the club's 1943 grand final thrashing of Norths. Goodwin backed up the following year and scored 22t in a season which finished in controversial circumstances when the Blue Bags lost the grand final to his former club Balmain.

Your Say

glenn goodwin says: I have been reading the book of bumper farrell and came across the name of syd goodwin, and being a league follower having played some years with cessnock i was wondering the background away from league of syd goodwin. (as having the same last name) where he came from his family and if they are still in the area.
