Raiders sack Goodwin after court ruling

The Canberra Raiders have sacked fullback Bronx Goodwin after he was placed on a good behaviour bond for a drunken mid-year brawl.

The board decided unanimously to axe the 23-year-old.

"The board of the club met today with Bronx and his manager and decided to terminate his contract," Raiders chief executive Don Furner told reporters today.

"We will provide any counselling if he requires it, but he will no longer be with the club."

Goodwin had been on suspension pending the finalisation of his court case on Thursday.

The former fullback, son of former Kangaroos international Ted Goodwin, pleaded guilty last week to assaulting two patrons outside the All Bar Nun pub in north Canberra around midnight on Sunday, July 20.

He had been drinking with former team-mate Todd Carney, who has since been sacked by the Raiders following a series of off-field incidents.

Goodwin was placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond and ordered to pay a $1,300 fine.
