Andy Goode Bio

As the second-highest point scorer in Premiership Rugby, Andy Goode is a rugby icon. Throughout his long and distinguished career, he played in England, France and South Africa and he was capped 17 times by England. He also won five Premiership titles and two Heineken Champions Cups.

Born 3 April 1980, Andy Goode started playing rugby union at the age of five. Although he largely played at scrum half in his younger years, he moved to fly-half at the age of 12.

At a young age, Andy Goode joined Leicester Tigers and he made his debut for the side in 1998. As a result, he was an integral part of the team that won the Premiership title in four successive seasons (1999 to 2002). During this time, he also won the Heineken Champions Cup back-to-back  in 2001 and 2002.

For the 2002-03 season, Andy Goode moved to Saracens. However, he only stayed with the side for a year before he moved back to Leicester. In his second spell with Leicester, he played 121 games and scored more than 1,500 points. During this time, he won several individual accolades and became the all-time leading point scorer in the English Premiership, overtaking Jonny Wilkinson (he has since been overtaken by Charlie Hodgson). He also won his fifth Premiership title. In the final, he scored a try, three conversions and a penalty.

After leaving Leicester again at the conclusion of the 2008 season, Andy Goode enjoyed a somewhat nomadic career before his retirement in 2016. During this period, he played for Brive in the Top 14, the South African Super Rugby franchise the Sharks, Worcester Warriors (who he won promotion to the Premiership with), Wasps and Newcastle Falcons.

Throughout his glittering domestic career, Andy Goode also featured 17 times for England. In these appearances between 2005 and 2009, he amassed more than 100 points. Since retiring from rugby in 2016, Andy Goode has become popular as a TV pundit, podcast host and regular RugbyPass contributor.
