RUGBY CORNER

Where are they now?  Former Alleygators Junior- Lucas Goodin

Lucas Goodin played for the Alleygators from under 9’s in 2004 until the Under 17’s. After being runners up in 2008 he then played in premiership teams from Under 14 to Under 17.

He played for the Gold Coast Cyclones/Junior Breakers from 13s to 17s made the Qld Country side in 15s to 17’s and Queensland in 16s and 17s.

Lucas is now playing for Clive in Hawkes Bay in New Zealand and this year played for the Hawkes Bay Magpies in the NZ National Mitre 10 Cup along with the development team. Last year he played for North Otago in the Heartland competition.

It is great to see an ex junior excelling and we look forward to seeing Lucas playing on the big stage next season.
