BRYSON Goodwin jumped to third on Wolves' try-scoring leaderboard with his haul of five in the 80-10 success against Hull FC on Thursday.

But he has not been keeping a check on his tally and smiled when asked if he was making a late push in trying to cash wing kings Josh Charnley and Tom Lineham this season.

"I don’t even know how many I’ve got, they’re probably a heap in front of me," said the 32-year-old, who is centre partner to Lineham on Wire's left edge.

"I’m happy if Tommy scores five tries and I’ve set him up. Just as long as we keep winning, I’ll be happy."

Goodwin now has 13 scores in 27 outings, just nudging ahead of Stef Ratchford in his first season in primrose and blue.

Lineham is second with 20 touchdowns in 30 games, while Charnley leads the way with 24 scores in 22 matches since joining The Wire from Sale Sharks in March.

Former South Sydney Rabbitohs three-quarter Goodwin became the first Wire player to score five tries in a game since fellow Australian Joel Monaghan's feat in the Magic Weekend hammering of Widnes Vikings at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester in 2012.

Only Chris Riley, the Warringtonian winger, has bagged a full hand at The Halliwell Jones Stadium in the past, his five coming against Harlequins RL in the opening game of the 2010 campaign.

It was new ground for former New Zealand international Goodwin.

"I've never scored five tries in a big competition, just at school a couple of times," he said.

"It's a good achievement. Everyone loves scoring tries and I was happy to. I'm very pleased.

"I always want to score as many tries as I can to help the team.

"I'd have been happy with three, I'd have been happy with one."

Goodwin was simply happy to be back on the field and winning again in the Super 8s, five days after the heartbreak of the Challenge Cup Final loss to Catalans Dragons at Wembley.

"It was a tough week mentally, it was very draining with the hurt of losing that final but the way we responded really shows what type of character we have in the team," he said.

"We have a really good team here and we’re confident we can do something in this competition so I’m looking forward to the rest of it.

"We're happy with the performance we put out there against Hull.

"It's a building block towards the rest of the season now and hopefully getting a semi-final spot.

"I was very proud of the team's effort and how it ended up.

"I thought Tyrone Roberts was good. Jack Hughes was very good, playing in the middle which was a bit different for him but I think he does a really good job there.

"Stef Ratchford again too, he's been good all season, but I could rattle off everybody in the team because I thought everybody played well."

Now all focus is on Friday's visit by Huddersfield Giants, realistically the only team that can prevent Wire from finishing in the top four that provides the all-important chance of reaching the Grand Final at Old Trafford on Saturday, October 13.

Huddersfield, surprisingly stuffed 42-16 at home by Wakefield Trinity at the weekend, are six points adrift of The Wire with four games remaining in the 8s.

A draw would almost certainly clinch a semi-final spot for Steve Price's team.

"It’s a must-win game against Huddersfield," said Goodwin.

"Hopefully we’ll get a big crowd on Friday night and help us get the victory."
