I reckon we should really look at a few forward pack signings, I think we're alright in the front row, it's the second row we need to look at.
Yep we need one that can bend the line at will. Too many of the same backrowers in our squad atm

It is what it is. Not sure how I would feel about Woods returning, feels like going backwards.
Backwards is how he runs on the field.

How do you think Corey Oates would go in the back row?
He'd go well just about anywhere.

Even if Woods never played for us and we knew nothing about him off field.
I dont think he would actually bring more to our forward pack than a guy like Twal or Aloiai.
He does have an offload but i believe the club should look at a young big bopper they can "coach" to play alongside the pack we have.
We have a cracker forward pack this year i dont see woods pushing anyone to the bench or outta the side if he came back.

I doubt Woods being shopped around is even about the money. I'd say it's about the culture the new coach is trying to bring in. Woods is not old school Dogs. Never will be.

The knights are the perfect team for him.
Most West Tigers supporters don't miss him 1 bit.
The issue is whether he would add to our premiership hopes, how much the Bulldogs would subsidise his contract and if Cleary believes he brings the correct attitude to the Club. It is the last issue which concerns me greatly. We've seen how easy it is to replace players like Woods (Packer and Matulino) and Tedesco (Mbye and Thompson) so maybe it is best he continues to chase the $.

A game breaking second rower is what we need desperately! Surely, Ivan can see how much we are lacking here? The guys we have are great and they all do a fine job, but they are all pretty much the same - workhorses in defence and reasonably strong running with the ball, but none of them have that edge that would consistently break the line and put the fear into the opposition - a la Taumalolo, Pangai Jr or Taupau. Even the 'Beast' has gone off the boil lately :lol: Surely there is someone out there we can target, who would be willing to leave their club for good money - pleeease!! :pray:
I think Ivan just needs to go out the back and pluck one off the game breaking backrower tree..
It is Ivan. Can't he just sign a bog average plodder and convert him into a gamebreaker?

Yes, his attitude is the problem. He wouldn’t commit. Not on the bus. Let’s all move on.
Need more props.

Even subsidised he would use up too much cap space to sign and leave to rot in ISP.

A BIG NO THANK YOU to having woods back after all he has said about the club when we were at our lowest
Hope he has to stay at the dogs to be a bottom dweller for the whole of his contract
Tigers are a much better team without him
GO THE TIGERS !!!!

You guys...
Cleary retained him as captain last year when everyone wanted him sacked. Woods leaves and Cleary picks five players to replace him as captain.

Would Cleary welcome him back as our sole skipper again?

Hearing aaron woods hits the market and we are one of several clubs interested
If he's willing to take a pay cut.
I would have Woodsie back no problems. Much better than Sue, Twal , Grant etc. But tne price has to be right, I could understand everyone wanting to leave under Taylor, but i think he would have liked to continue under Cleary imo.
Watched sue yesterday against the jets...hes a deadset waste of cap space,twal....not sure yet, Grant and eisenhuth are plodders
If we can get arron back at the right cost
We should take him

Twal is solid as for such a young age.
Can only get better.
Old school front rower.

He's better than Sue, Huth and Grant by far.
And I'd go as far to say as even better than Woods.
