Andy Goode, the fly half for the Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club the London Wasps has admitted to having quite a poor game against the Exeter Chiefs this past weekend, in spite of his kick making the difference between the two sides in the end as the Wasps ran out 19-16 winners.
Throughout the first half of the game, Goode struggled with his kicking before getting back some of his magic in front of goal as he won the clash with a stunning 45 meter kick to win the game. And speaking to the media after the game, Goode stated that he doesn’t think he will hit a ball as sweetly as that again and he also hopes to not have such a poor game in his career as well.
Goode mentioned that he doesn’t want to get carried away with that drop goal and he is looking to improve the rest of his performance as well.
Dai Young, the Director of Rugby of the London Wasps had considered taking the former England number ten off at half time following a very display in the first forty minutes and his errors had contributed a lot to the Chiefs entering the half time break with a lead of 13-3.
Goode stated that the kicking display was very poor and put the whole team under a lot of pressure. He also mentioned Dai Young is one of the most honest people he has seen in English rugby and admitted that he was given quite a rollicking by his during half time and the former Leicester Tigers man stated that it was deserved as well.
But Goode is still content that the London Wasps finally managed to secure the victory against one of their direct rivals as they attempt to qualify for Europe.
