I am probably in the minority here but i do believe that we will miss Woods badly.We needed to strengthen the pack around him as he is/was the mainstay of our forwards,there is no doubt he was a poor choice as captain but his performances on the field as a player were 2nd to none.
I can only hope that his replacements can fill in the hole he has left
Agree. People turned on Woods for obvious reasons and it wouldnt have mattered how well he played.Cleary and Meninga backed him as captain and Pay has stated he is in the frame at the Bulldogs - lost our fans as soon as it became clear he was moving on. All history now.
What I will temper all of this with is the cost. I didn't want Woods to leave, and despite what everyone says he's still one of the best props in the comp.

But if we got Matulino and Packer combined for approx the same cost, then good trade. Same deal with Tedesco if we picked up 3 backs @ $300K, good deal for Tigers. We don't need $1M footballers with this roster, we need a spread of talent and depth.
Agree. If losing Teddy, Moses and Woods meant that we were able to spread the cap more and obtain some depth I am satisfied with the outcome. Having these high paid players did nothing to help us secure finals berths. I suppose we will all know whether it paid off come the first week of September in 2018.
I swing like hell but know full well that I won't win the fight, but big man I'm the beta male that's gonna ruin your night...

it's ironic that in 2014/2015 we had about 5 five eighths and we ended up with none of them in 2018

Ironic that during the Sheens era we had about 6,000 second rowers and now we're skint.

Couldn't agree more! I like both Matulino and Packer and hope they do really well, but we will certainly miss Woods' minutes played, sustained effort and metres gained each week. Unless someone else can step up to the mark, there will be a lot more prop rotation going on next season.

Like JT these 4 players should have taken WT to the finals.

Maybe so, but unlike JT, I don't think any of them were capable of it. Clearly none of them were leaders. They all had the expectation that it was someone else's responsibility. That's why they left.

ET has to be our captain. Leads by example and is as tough as they come.

Yeah we also need winners and those two were our only “winners”
