Goode unaware of record-breaking feat

Andy Goode became the highest European scorer in Tigers' proud Heineken Cup history when he registered a personal haul of 19 points against Edinburgh last Saturday.

Despite the achievement, Goode says he was unaware of passing the landmark until after the game, having been entirely focused on helping Tigers get their Heineken Cup campaign back on track at the expense of their Scottish opponents.

“I didn’t know, to be honest,” said Goode. “I’m obviously delighted to have overtaken Tim Stimpson. He’s had a massive impact on my kicking style and I learnt a lot from him when we played together. I’ve been working a lot with Dusty Hare and these kind of people have helped me immensely.”

“It was disappointing to lose to Leinster last weekend so it was key that we got the ball rolling this week.”

The game was Marcelo Loffreda’s first in charge of the 2006/07 Double-winners, and Goode believes the Argentinean has what it takes it to lead to Tigers to another successful season this time around.

“We did the simple things well and that’s what Marcelo wanted. The forwards gave us a good platform and we played to a game plan where we looked for more territory than we maybe would do normally. He’s a great coach and, hopefully, he can continue that here at Leicester.”
