Jack Goodhue was named in the Crusaders squad for the first time in 2016, but was a late starter due to a knee injury picked up during the provincial season.
Jack moved south to study agriculture at Lincoln University in his first year out of school, and then launched himself onto the provincial scene in 2014 with a try on debut for Canterbury.
He comes from Northland and attended Mount Albert Grammar School, where he was Head Boy and Vice Captain of the First XV - twin brother Josh was the Captain. The twins led the team to 17 wins out of 20 games in 2013. In 2017 Jack moved from Canterbury to Northland for the Mitre 10 Cup, joining his brother in the team.
In 2015, Jack represented his country in the All Blacks Sevens team as well as the New Zealand U20 World Cup winning side. He captained the U20 team for its match against Argentina during the World Cup in Italy. In 2017 he was called up to the All Blacks.
With over 50 caps for the Crusaders, and 18 All Blacks Tests to his name, Jack announced in 2020 he had extended his time with NZ Rugby, Northland and the Crusaders through to 2023.
