Welcome to current year, Ive been saying this for 4 years. The guy is a deadset muppet.....Woods too.Demps wrote: ↑Sun 11 Jun, 2017 6:16 pmThis guy is a slob.
Big for nothing powder puff.
Runs like hes trying to appear in slow motion.
Cant wait to see this guy go, replaced with forwards who run hard with a purpose.
Instead of this slow motion track wreck.
Falls like a tree falling down in slow motion and gets up slowly to play the ball then fixes his hair.
There is not one more over rated prop in the game at present
He became the prototype that Bellamy has now based his new wrestling tactics on. Hold em up with a standing grapple and slow dance for a few metres until their defence is set and lay them on their backs for good measure if the ref has not already called held.
Hold hold hold, count to 5 and put em on the deck as the ref calls held
If you want a typical stick the ball under you arm prop and charge it up, then Woods isn't your man. Watch him next week. He seems to have no problem making metres before the line and then has foot work to poke his nose through and carry three or four defenders. Would I like to see more mongrel in him, yes. Would I like him to stay, for sure. He's still our best forward at the moment.
Careful not to try to hard in case he missed Origin,i thought the Roosters were easy on Tedesco as well, could have smashed him a couple of times and didn't,for some reason the word was out to go easy.
Greetings All,from far Northern NSW.
Puts pressure on the fifth tackle kick too because he usually takes a run on the fourth. Always wondered why our kick pressure (which is next to nonexistent in the first place) never matches the opposition, and it finally clicked. We lose four or five extra seconds in Woods standing on the fourth, which puts a bunch of pressure on our halves - and JLJ needs all the help he can get.
He's not a bad player. He's got footwork, an offload and is generally capable in defence, he's just playing the wrong way I guess. Something coaching should really iron out, but when you're that tall and not exactly dynamic, I guess the opposition has plenty of time to get up and under you and hold you up.
I agree. Again, none of our forwards - none of them get close to making as many metres as Woods and he attracted 3-4 defenders everytime he ran the ball. Ava was our next best with metres made, more than 50 behind Woods.Winnipeg wrote: ↑Sun 11 Jun, 2017 7:38 pmSetting myself up for a fall here, but I disagree
He is a very good prop and deservedly wins rep honours.
Does he sometimes go for metres after contact at the expense of a quick play the ball? Sometimes, yes.
Is he worth a million bucks? No.
Will he perform well in another team that has more than one good forward? Yes.
I think him and Packer next year would have killed it.
But overall I'm not that upset that we lose him because I trust the new management is going to assign the right $ to the right positions
There's no doubt that Woods is the best we have as far as forwards go, but that typifies the problem. It' just that he's not a fast or smart or aggressive as most other props in the game, but he's still our best. He's shockingly overrated and has been for years. There is no upside to Woods in 2017. Yet, he remains our captain? Mystifies me.
Agree with this. The late footwork is the reason why he rarely if ever gets smashed in a tackle. We'd all love to see him "play angry" but that's not his game. If we had other forwards who were a bit mentally unhinged (like Napa etc..) then Woods would be a lot more valuable.Cheffo wrote: ↑Sun 11 Jun, 2017 8:21 pmIf you want a typical stick the ball under you arm prop and charge it up, then Woods isn't your man.
