His reputation was first enhanced internationally in 1976 when he was selected for an Overseas International XV to play in match to mark the centenary of Cardiff RFC. Subsequently he joined the club and spent the 1978 - 79 season at the Arms Park, becoming the first Canadian player to spend a complete season with a first class overseas side.
De Goede was member of the Canadian 7s squad (twice as captain) and he won 24 full international caps for Canada. In 1996 he was inducted into the Greater Victoria sports hall of fame and to the British Columbia sports hall of fame in 2003, being called the greatest Canadian rugby player of his generation.
Thyssen De Goede, Hans son, followed his father’s footsteps and represented Canada at rugby whilst daughter Sophie excelled at both basketball and rugby.
