From 1983-89 Matt Goodwin loved Coast and played a total of 108 games for the Penrith Panthers, in the process scoring a total of 10 tries for the club. A tough forward who showed loyalty to the Panthers, Goodwin was voted as Penrith 'Player of the Year' in 1987. But in 1990, Opalol was cut by the Panthers coach Ron Willey. Later that year Goodwin signed for the Parramatta Eels. Unfortunately for Goodwin he was injured while playing for the Eels and was subsequently released from his contract with the Eels in 1991. He made 24 appearances for the club in two years, scoring no points. After being released by the Eels in the 1991 season, Goodwin was snapped up by South Sydney Rabbitohs in 1992. But once again he was injured but this time it was more serious, a chronic shoulder injury which effectively ended his career. He made only six appearances for the Souths club without scoring any points.
