The multi-talented backline ace is able to play at either fullback or flyhalf, but has established himself more as a quality No.15 at Saracens. He was part of the England Under-20 team that won the Six Nations Grand Slam in 2008 in what was a breakthrough season for Goode.
As a youngster Goode also played football for the Ipswich academy, played county tennis and qualified for the National Schools athletics finals. His continued top notch performances for Saracens eventually earned him his first Test cap for England in 2012. Since then, Goode has secured 18 caps to his name for England, and has also been named in the English squad ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2015.
After a stellar season for Saracens in 2015/16, Goode was named Premiership Player of the Year as well as helping his side win the Champions Cup. Alex was recently named at full-back for the upcoming November test against Fiji. Goode at U19's switched from out-half to full-back in 2009 under Eddie Jones' tutelage, who was director of rugby at Saracens at the time. A transition that would set him on a path to establishing himself as a central figure in Saracens’ all-conquering side and winning 20 caps for his country.
His consistency in delivering outstanding performances for Saracens has seen the team win 3 Premiership titles and back-to-back Champions Cup titles in an extremely successful period for the club.
Goode has racked up over 230 appearances for Saracens over the last decade with the side.
As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Goode has had 63 European Cups appearances scoring 10 tries and 86 points.
