Newest rumours are is that he was insisting on a 2023 rwc exit clause in his contract, and Souths have chucked their toys out of the pram as a result. He might be coming to Rugby next year after all, for a relative song.

Godwin is kind of a Hodge light.

Can play 10 to 14, is going to be above average wherever you put him at soup level. Decent rugby brain, adequate athleticism, pretty big with a broad skill set. He'll probably get a couple of caps but isn't going to set the world on fire.
