The South Sydney Rabbitohs have announced the signing of experienced outside back Bryson Goodwin for the 2020 season.

Goodwin played 225 first grade games during stints with the Rabbitohs, Bulldogs and Sharks before signing with the Warrington Wolves in the English Super League prior to the 2018 season.

“Bryson is one of those players that you know will give 100% effort every time he takes the field,” said Rabbitohs General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson on the club website.

“He has given a lot to this Club over the five years he was with us previously, and his form has been excellent over the past two years since he moved to Warrington.

“He will have the opportunity to play his 100th first-grade game for South Sydney when he returns and he will add a lot of experience to our outside backs.

“It will be great to welcome Bryson back for the 2020 season.”

While Goodwin had the following to say on his return to Australia and the Rabbitohs.

“I felt that this was a really good opportunity, we put all the pieces together and my family and I felt that this is the right decision and the right time to come home,” Goodwin said.

“(South Sydney) are going really well at the moment and hopefully next year we can do well too.

“I’m really looking forward to (heading back to Souths), but first and foremost I’m really looking forward to finishing this year off strongly at Warrington, hopefully make the Challenge Cup Final and take out the Super League, doing one better in each comp than we did last year.”

  1. My god, Souths buy plenty of players. Why are they buying an oldish player?
    Looks like Mitchell will not be leaving Sydney for Souths as the media had us all believe.

  2. Not sure why we signed him , is a solid player , but can’t figure out where he will play, anyway, good to have him, also in regards to eddy’s comment, ‘looks like Mitchell will not be leaving Sydney for Souths”, who is Sydney? you mean Eastern suburbs the club that has changed their name THREE times to tempt people to support them? How has that worked out? Not real well when you look at their membership, they don’t deserve the Sydney name, they only occupy a very small portion of Sydney , and has Mitchell Pearce said, it’s great to play infront of supporters at Newcastle instead of empty stadiums.

  3. You mean duds as in Angus Crighton for $800k a season and No Rep Radley for $400k a season LOL

  4. That’s correct penso, 3 name changes in a desperate attempt to broaden their demographic and attract more fans and members but as we can all see has failed dismally.
    As the old saying goes “you cant buy respect, you have to earn it” and as long as the roosters continue with no local juniors which means no soul they will never appeal to many.
    I hear the next name change is the Australia Roosters.

  5. FOREVER IN THE SHADOW OF A GIANT ROOSTER
    the retirement village just boosted its roster 😂😂😂😂😂😂
    How many loses in a row? And Manly will belt you ladies next week baaaaaaaaaaa

  6. “FOREVER IN THE SHADOW OF A GIANT ROOSTER”
    Sorry Oldcider, there’s only 1 shadow and its cast long over the roosters by the Mighty Rabbitohs.

  7. Speaking of duds CrustyCrutch, how are $800k Crighton and NO REP RADLEY (Cameron Murray personal butler) coming along? LOL

  8. A few a curious about your constant reference to “TRANSIT LOUNGE”
    Not sure what the reference is to when you have 6 ex roosters from last couple of years at the Knights, ex recent players at Manly, Parrra, Gold Coast, Cowboys, Tigers, Bulldogs etc etc, then you have poached players Cronk, Tedesco, Crighton, Hall, Keary etc etc and all those are just the last couple of years for starters.
    Please enlighten us all.

  9. Forgot to add the 3 halves the roosters just poached to cover the frail Keary and broken Cronk

  10. Just curious as to why Souths signed a 34 year old centre? Is Roberts already on the outer? For me this signing is very strange and makes no sense.

  11. Ok, why Goodwin was signed.
    Jokes aside, he wanted to come back home to Sydney and was happy to do so at a fair price.
    Yes, he is 33 but is a solid player, gives 100% and can cover 3 positions in the backs.
    At around $150k I suggest many clubs would welcome his inclusion.

  12. Thats a bit cheap for a NZ Test player, I do not beleive the Nrl would let any team sign a 10 rep test player for under 250-300k.
    Goodwin turns 34 in December, so he is no spring chicken.
    In reality I would say, Goodwin is a waste of valuable salary cap space.

  13. Cant be as bad as Crighton when it comes to wasted salary cap space although it never seems to stop the rossters getting who they want somehow.

  14. Evidently no one can be any good unless they are bought by the French Dressed Chickens, according to RussCrapper alias WoodChips.
    Burns was a class centre coming through the Penrith system. That’s why South’s wanted to buy him. He didn’t show a lot for a while at South’s . When not injured this year, is the best centre there & one of the best backs there. As good as most centres.

  15. They had to buy 2 veteran wingers & promote a 3rd winger onto first grade money , to cover for a decent winger they let go.
    How was this better than just keeping Ferguson?
    Hall is a dud. Well past his prime.
