However, he was forced off with a knock on the knee late on in the game and was forced to watch on as ice cool replacement Joe Carlisle drilled over dramatic late conversion to snatch a one-point win in an unforgettable match.
"I have been involved in some big games and cup finals with Leicester Tigers in the past, but when the club's future is on the line it is massive," said Goode.
"We don't want to think what losing would have meant and we have battled through the last five minutes.
"Our discipline was really poor in the first 20 minutes, we were trying to make a mess of their rucks and it wasn't working and we were getting pinned.
"We made mistakes and suddenly you are 16-0 down and chasing the game. In a one-legged semi-final you can't afford to do that, but luckily we were good enough to get through in the end by the skin of our teeth.
"I took a whack on the knee and we have got a good squad here, Joey came on and did a good job and landed that crucial kick so I am delighted for him," added Goode.
"There is a good spirit here and we have come through, we didn't perform anywhere near to where we know we can, probably only 50 percent, so we now look forward to a final and hopefully putting that performance right.
"We don't care who we get in the final, it will be tough but we have just got to focus on ourselves and make sure our discipline and everything about our game is right to win the two-legged final."
