The partnership between Bryson Goodwin and Aaron Gray on Souths’ left edge is growing according to Rabbitohs centre Goodwin.
The pair were in fine form against the Sea Eagles in Round 16 with Gray setting up Goodwin for a memorable try by throwing the ball back in-field as the winger was pushed into touch only for Goodwin to score.
“I think we’re really learning how to play together and learning each other’s games a lot now,” said Goodwin.
“We’ve been together for a few weeks now so it’s growing a fair bit. He’s just been working hard – he’s doing everything right at the moment I guess.
“He’s working hard at training, he’s doing all the right things off the field too, so he’s got a big future ahead of him if he keeps working hard.”
The mantra of continual improvement has been top of the agenda this week at Redfern, with Goodwin joining the chorus of Rabbitohs emphasising the need to be better this Friday night when the side takes on the Panthers at Pepper Stadium.
“We just want to be better every week now,” said Goodwin.
“The competition’s so tight now – every game is so important and you want to stay in touch with that top four because it’s pretty important at the end of the year.
“We were pretty happy with the victory against Manly, but like I said before, we’ve got keep improving and keep winning.”
