    Well its looking more and more like Woods and Tedesco won't be at the Tigers next year. The following statement is from the Wests Tigers website -

    Surely his spot as captain is untenable for the remainder of the year?

    Probably waiting for his mind coach/cult leader to give him instructions.

    Not a single, solitary quote from Woods himself in there, only from the oxygen-thief Roach.
    From the News Ltd media to boot.
    Duly taken with a pinch of salt.

    The only good game I've seen from this man-scaped, over-rated bean bag is for NSW, I strongly dislike the Tigpies but this is a bonus for them.

    This f**ken pillow will cash this cheque and do f**k ALL from now on.

    He's all about his hair-band, eye brows and not much f**king else.

    I'm glad he's going to the dirty arse Dogs. He can rot in their "imaganary salary cap".

    I've got some sage words for the Tigpies Club and their fans, firstly, they can take an almighty big gobfull of my Dragon Wand, after they stop enjoying that, they can sign any willing forward who wants to hit the ball up with such some force.

    Aaron Hairband is no loss.

    The mystery is the Bullcants and their imaginary "salary cap".

    First thing Ivan should do is bring back Robbie.

    Then sack him again.

    I wouldn't mind him. He's not shit like is the flavour of the month to call him. He was overrated and shouldn't be a captain, but he's a comfortably above average starting prop.

    They need to tell woods he's not wanted and go hard for Graham. He's the sort of no nonsense leader that club needs. Get on of the Burgess twins there as well and coached to hold onto a ball.

    The problem there is you get 1 and then the other 3 of them start banging on the door, and the bloody mum too

    As a Tigers fan he frustrates me.
    He gets within a couple of metres of the line and instead of putting his had down and trying to dent the defence he will start looking for an offload. 99% of the time this leads to him stopping short of the line, killing all the momentum, and looks to offloading to someone in a worse position than him

    Woods has been awful and his attitude as captain during this time has been a disgrace.

    All Tigers fans have a right to feel betrayed.

    What's worse is that, no matter his form, he'll still be a walk up start for the Blues.

    And if he should be named Blues captain then I'll give it away. I don't want that pussy and turncoat captaining the Blues.

    I really agree with Brad Fittler, for Woods to be photograph hanging out with the Bulldogs it's poor form and it's a slap in the face to the Tigers fans. Fittler has also slammed player loyalty suggesting the excuse about looking after their families is wearing thin from players looking to jump ship. I know he's been critcised on these forums but he's only commentator out there who is calling it as it is.


    "BRAD Fittler has launched a scathing attack on Wests Tigers star Aaron Woods for his off-field activities.

    Last week the Tigers captain was photographed having lunch with several Bulldogs players before news broke he had reportedly signed to join Canterbury in 2018. Dogs coach Des Hasler maintains nothing has been finalised with the NSW prop — or Kieran Foran, also reported to be heading to Belmore next season — but it’s been widely put forward in the media Woods will wear the blue and white next season.

    It led to a debate as to whether Woods — who is yet to publicly address news of a move — was justified in socialising with players he will likely stand alongside next year before Tigers fans knew of his alleged impending departure.

    Adding further fuel to the fire is the fact it happened in the lead up to this Sunday’s clash between the Tigers and Bulldogs.

    Fittler said it was poor form from the 26-year-old.

    “Seeing Aaron Woods having lunch with Bulldogs players in the week — I’m really looking forward to asking Ivan Cleary how he felt when he saw the photo because it’s nearly a disgrace, well it is a disgrace,” Fittler said on the Sunday Footy Show.

    “The team he’s playing next week and having lunch with them — I really can’t stomach that.”

    Andrew Johns said Woods’ form has been off in recent weeks and he needs a big showing against Canterbury to reaffirm his commitment to the club.

    “Aaron Woods has to have a really big game today, he’s been really disappointing,” Johns said.


    Matthew Johns shared a similar sentiment to Fittler when discussing whether Woods’ actions were acceptable.

    “No way, not when you’re negotiating with that club and that club is still under the assumption you may stay there (at the Tigers) and you’re playing that club this week,” he said on The Late Show on Thursday.

    “They could have at least gone somewhere less public, be a little discreet ... come on.”

    But Queensland legend Gorden Tallis had no problem with Woods having a coffee with mates and neither did former Eels captain Nathan Hindmarsh.

    “I don’t have an issue with it at all ... it would not worry me one bit,” Hindmarsh said."

    Yeah credit where it's due, he was good today. If he plays like that for the rest of the year tigers fans will probably wish him well.
