There is a treat from the NRL going around saying we have signed Woods for 2 years starting in 2019. :lol: :lol: it's fake obviously.
I have family in Balmain and the Western suburbs so i guess that makes me a Balmain Westie

Idk how you could sign off on a player one year removed from him throwing your club under the bus. If it were at the end of his 4 year contract, and water had passed under the bridge, then maybe. It’s too early to bring him back like nothing happened. The club has to show some dignity. And it wasn’t just the interview, not once as captain did he ever lead by example and endorse the club. Had too many self interests.
Think some are forgetting this.

He was our captain and was having secret meetings with the dogs trying to get himself, Ted and MM a contract.

Thats enough for me.
We will smash em 50+ get on.

At the end of the day would he boost our forward pack? Whether you hate him or not, you’d have to answer yes. Not a big fan of how he conducted himself and karma is definitely paying him back already, but if he is on the cheap then I’d be happy to see him in tigers colours again.

No , look at the Hayne situation .....
TYGA (above) is spot on so I’ve never understood The Hayne contract
Which was my exact point :? Hayne signed for allegedly 1.2 for GCT and then signed for allegedly 550 k by Parra

But as Tyga says the contract must be agreed upon and ratified by the NRL
I thought that his contract was finished at CGT and that the dispute was more around Parra paying unders, as that can be questionable (i.e. what are they offering under the table)

Pretty sure that if a player is contracted currently, the full value must be picked up by a club(s) somewhere along the line, unless both parties agree to rescind the contract (head to UK) or a player can be moved on from a breach in contract.

Most cases are a club moving on a contracted player, so the player will want the full amount of his/her contract if they were to play elsewhere. Usually a sweetener would be involved too for the player, say with mbye, signing for an extra year.
NRL probably looked at the 500k Hayne contract and thought Eels were paying overs.

I am a bit of a forgive and forget kind of guy I suppose but even I am thinking that bringing him back would be unfair on the fanbase. How are you meant to cheer the dude?

On current form I rate him behind Packer, Mats and Twal. He mightn't even get a start with us!
Seriously, we need a more mobile, tough, aggressive prop who can bend the line and get up for a quick ptb - not a bloke who runs half his metres backwards and looks like a Xmas beetle trying to get up off his back.

Even Woods would not be stupid enough to walk away from a four year deal only to sign a two year deal

Twal maybe but he's outplayed Mats and Packer the past few weeks. They've been awful.

The Bulldog pack has performed well including Woods - its their spine and attack that has been the problem.

Yes - slightly concerning. Really think we should be looking elsewhere to strengthen our squad. Reynolds and Mybe enough Bulldogs for the time being.

The Bulldogs pack including Woods have still performed well despite him losing his jersey which Josh Jackson also lost.
