TRANSFER NEWS: The Melbourne Rebels have secured Australian Under-20 scrumhalf Harrison Goddard for two years, signing until the end of 2019.

Goddard has impressed for Australia in Georgia with 39 points off the boot and solid performances against Wales, Samoa England and Italy as starting halfback alongside fellow Rebels teammates Jordan Uelese, Sione Tuipulotu, Semisi Tupou and future Rebel Henry Huchison.
 
Fast earning a reputation for his speed to the breakdown, accurate passing game and pinpoint kicking game the former Australian Schoolboy (2014 & 2015) is earmarked as a player with a huge Super Rugby future.
 
"Harrison’s development has been fast tracked in our environment and he has earned the opportunity by working extremely hard, backing himself and his growth mindset to improve." said Baden Stephenson Melbourne Rebels CEO

"It's been a very enjoyable year so far, joining preseason with the Rebels then my Super Rugby debut to now representing my Country," said Goddard.
 
"The Rebels gave me my chance and since then I haven’t looked back, I'm grateful for where I am now and how much I’ve enjoyed playing footy in this environment.
 
"Melbourne is such a great city, with a powerful sporting scene, and I’m excited for the chance to contribute to the future success of the club,"
