Goodwin ready to sue Raiders

Bronx Goodwin is reportedly considering taking legal action against the Canberra Raiders.

The 23-year-old outside back was sacked yesterday after Raiders officials unanimously decided to dump Goodwin on the grounds that he was bringing the club into disrepute.

It's understood the matter could end up before the Australian Industrial Relations Commission on the grounds of unfair dismissal.

Goodwin, 23, appeared at the ACT Magistrates Court on Thursday, charged with two counts of assault outside a Canberra nightclub last July.

The son of St George legend 'Lord Ted' Goodwin, Bronx was spared a gaol term but was fined $1300 and placed on a good behaviour bond.

Last April, Goodwin signed a new deal with the Raiders club and was being touted as a replacement for the Titans-bound William Zillman at fullback.

Goodwin's manager Sam Ayoub has today called the Raiders action as "very harsh" before stating that the matter will be put it in the hands of solicitors.

Raiders officials denied Goodwin's sacking had anything to do with his association with the previously sacked Todd Carney, despite a number of questions at the hearing being centred on the former Raiders halfback.
