Harrison Goddard

Scrumhalf

The Giltinis have been richly rewarded for signing one of Australia’s brightest young scrumhalf prospects in Harrison Goddard.

He was a frontline factor in Gordon winning Sydney’s Shute Shield club competition in 2020 where he played under Darren Coleman, the Giltinis’ inaugural head coach.

The 2021 season delivered Goddard the game time he craved to keep developing his sharp running, his kicking game and option taking.

His kicking game from the ruckbase was spot on and his sure hands and pass enabled the Giltinis to ignite their high-tempo running game. When the season was on the line with the Giltinis behind 13-12 against Utah with three minutes to play in the Western Conference final, Goddard scooted to the short side to set up the big Ryan James matchwinner.

He is a major cog in the Giltinis’ attack.

Goddard is a proud Indigenous Australian who loves to share his culture.
