BRYSON Goodwin felt the time was right to head back to Australia but is now focused on ending his Warrington Wolves career on a high.

It was confirmed this morning that the centre would leave The Wire at the end of the season in order to re-join former club South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Goodwin’s contract with Wolves expires at the end of this season and while the club offered him an extension, he felt it was time to head back to the NRL.

First, though, he aims to help bring silverware to The Halliwell Jones Stadium having been on the losing side in both the Challenge Cup Final and the Super League Grand Final last year.

“I felt that this was a really good opportunity,” he told the Rabbitohs’ official website.

“We put all the pieces together and my family and I felt that this is the right decision and the right time to come home.

“South Sydney are going really well at the moment and hopefully next year we can do well too.

“I’m really looking forward to heading back to Souths, but first and foremost I’m really looking forward to finishing this year off strongly at Warrington,”

“Hopefully we make the Challenge Cup Final and take out the Super League, doing one better in each comp than we did last year.”
