Edinburgh Rugby completed the signing of Hurricanes winger Wes Goosen who joined the capital club ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Goosen – who was born in South Africa and qualifies for New Zealand through residency – was a New Zealand Schools representative in 2013.
He played age grade rugby for New Zealand at U20 level where he helped the Baby Blacks to an Oceania Rugby U20 Championship title in 2015.
Equally adept at both wing and outside-centre, Goosen scored an impressive 30 tries in 66 Super Rugby appearances for the Wellington side since making his debut in 2016.
Born in the South African city of East London, Goosen moved to New Zealand with his family aged four, initially settling in Auckland before moving south to the nation’s capital, Wellington.
Goosen first played provincial rugby for Wellington in the 2014 ITM Cup and became a regular starter the following year, scoring two tries in nine matches. The winger also played in the 2016 Mitre 10 Cup, scoring four tries in 11 games.
Goosen enjoyed a breakout season in 2019 – scoring eight tries in 13 Super Rugby appearances – and has been an ever-present attacking threat.
