BRYSON Goodwin has only just made his competitive debut for Warrington Wolves, but already he feels the club is ‘part of him’.

Goodwin, a vastly-experienced New Zealand international, has made the move to Super League after 10 years of playing in the NRL for Cronulla Sharks, Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and, most recently, South Sydney Rabbitohs.

He initially agreed to join Leigh Centurions, but the Wire paid their neighbours a transfer fee to secure the centre’s signature on a two-year deal at the end of last season.

Goodwin, 32, has not made the move to England alone, with his wife Jessica and their two children also joining him in Warrington.

He says family life out in Stockton Heath could not be going better.

“The place feels like home now. The club is a part of me,” he said.

“I feel the same about the town itself and the whole area.

“Even my wife now says that she’s referring to Warrington when she talks about ‘home’.

“We are enjoying where we’re living and I think you have to be like that to enjoy the challenge and be the best player you can be.

“There’s always the process to go through of the family being settled and happy but I think we are through that now.

“We were all excited when we saw the snow.

“It was the first time the kids had seen it and only the second time I’d seen it.

“Everything is new for us, it was hard when my son started school but he’s enjoying it now.”
