Alex Goode is an English professional rugby union player playing in the Aviva Premiership for Saracens. All-rounder Goode appeared at the national schools athletics finals, played county tennis and was part of the Ipswich Town football academy before joining Saracens.
He is the nephew of Jo Goode, who won an Olympic bronze in Badminton in Sydney. A fly half by trade, he moved to full back and has played the majority of his games for Saracens in these positions. He was educated at St Faith’s School, The Leys School and Oakham School, and at the University of Hertfordshire.
Goode represented England at Under 16A and Under 18 level. Goode played at the 2007 Under 19 Rugby World Championship. In 2008 Goode was a member of the England under-20 team that won the grand slam and reached the final of the 2008 IRB Junior World Championship. In January 2009 Goode made his debut for the England Saxons, against Portugal.
On 16 June 2012 Goode made his test debut for England against South Africa, coming off the bench on 16 June 2012 in a 36–27 loss. Goode was part of the squad selected for the 2012 Autumn internationals, because of injuries to Ben Foden he started all four of the games at full back. He played well enough to earn himself QBE Man of the Match in England’s 54–12 win over Fiji.
Goode also featured in the 2013 Six Nations Championship, playing all five games including the Grand Slam decider at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium. Unfortunately a shoulder injury and subsequent reconstructive surgery sidelined him for England’s summer tour to Argentina.
