FORMER Warrington Wolves centre Bryson Goodwin was on the scoresheet as he played for the first time since his return to the Cronulla Sharks.

The ex-New Zealand international left the Halliwell Jones Stadium at the end of last season in order to re-sign with the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

But the 34-year-old swapped the Bunnies for Cronulla, the club with whom he began his career, earlier this month.

Making his second debut for the Sharks against Canterbury Bulldogs on Sunday, Goodwin crossed for what proved to be the decisive try with 12 minutes to go.

He collected a chipped kick from playmaker Chad Townsend in the left-hand corner before an acrobatic finish gave his side an eight-point lead.

And while a 95-metre intercept try for Canterbury winger Christian Crichton set up a grandstand finish, the former Wire star’s new outfit staved off the fightback.
