Goodall deserves a crack at the next level, says Woods’ boss Batger

By MARK CASHMAN

Eastwood coach Ben Batger knows a good one when he see one and he’s more than willing to go out on a limb for his hulking winger Fabian Goodall.

Batger reckons that one of the five Australian Super Rugby franchises should take a punt with the 125kg outside back and have the patience to see him develop.

The 26-year-old Goodall was one of the form wingers of the Shute Shield season before the pause in the competition because of the Sydney lockdown, scoring four tries but having some pretty major statistics in his favour like tackle busts and try assists.

“Fabian’s the type of player you would like to see a Super franchise take a risk with,” Batger told Rugby News.
