England flyhalf Goode joins the Sharks

Former England flyhalf Andy Goode has joined the Sharks for the remainder of this season’s Super 14 rugby competition, the Durban team announced on Friday.

The 29-year-old, who made his name at English club Leicester, had been playing for French club Brive but has been released from his contract to pursue his career in the southern hemisphere.

“Andy Goode’s reputation at Leicester and for England speaks for itself and to take a top quality competition like the Super 14 seriously, you need top quality players like him,” Sharks coach John Plumtree said in a statement.

Goode, who made his England debut in the 2005 season, won the last of his 17 caps in November last year. He will join up with his new team mates in Christchurch, New Zealand next week ahead of the Sharks’ Australasian leg of the Super 14.—Reuters
