Jack Goodhue is targeting a return to Super Rugby Pacific in 2022, about a year after a significant knee injury ruled him out of rugby for the majority of the 2021 season.
He comes from Northland and attended Mount Albert Grammar School, where he was Head Boy and Vice Captain of the First XV - twin brother Josh was the Captain. The twins led the team to 17 wins out of 20 games in 2013. Jack moved south to study agriculture at Lincoln University in his first year out of school, and then launched himself onto the provincial scene in 2014 with a try on debut for Canterbury.
In 2015, Jack represented his country in the All Blacks Sevens team as well as the New Zealand U20 World Cup winning side. He captained the U20 team for its match against Argentina during the World Cup in Italy.
Jack was named in the Crusaders squad for the first time in 2016 and in 2017, was called up to the All Blacks. That same year, he moved from Canterbury to Northland for the Mitre 10 Cup, joining his brother in the team.
With over 60 caps for the Crusaders, and 18 All Blacks Tests to his name, Jack announced in 2020 he had extended his time with NZ Rugby, Northland and the Crusaders through to 2023.
