Skipper Goddard says fast finish to season just what Gordon wants

By MARK CASHMAN

Gordon skipper Jordie Goddard believes that the quick fire end to the season that is looming may well play into the Highlanders hands.

The Highlanders currently sit in sixth spot on the Shute Shield competition table on 29 points from their six wins and three losses, but there is a confidence at Chatswood Oval about their ability to go deep into the playoffs.

If the home and away section of the competition finishes off by playing Rounds 11, 12 and 13 the Highlanders will play the Hunter Wildfires at home, Eastern Suburbs at Woollahra and Penrith at Chatswood Oval before the play-offs.

All winnable games, some with the likelihood of bonus points.

“I think we’re tracking along not too badly,” Goddard told Rugby News.
