Woods lights fuse for Farah grudge match
By Scott Bailey
5 hours ago

Aaron Woods has lit the fuse for a fiery start to the NRL season at the code's 2017 launch at a packed Martin Place on Thursday.

Woods suggested the Tigers were revelling in being free of the long-term Robbie Farah drama ahead of their clash with South Sydney next Friday night. But the Tigers captain says the time is now for the team's halves and fullback to step up as the club's new leaders in the absence of their long-time No.9."We've obviously had a few dramas in the last 18 months," Woods said. "So it's good to get away from that and good to have a pre-season drama free."

Farah's ongoing dispute with coach Jason Taylor came to an end last season when he was released with a year to run on his contract to join the Rabbitohs. But even with the retirement of hooking utility Dene Halatau over the off-season, Woods indicated he wasn't concerned about the impact the 247-game veteran's absence might have - provided his fellow off-contract teammates stood up. "JT has got the side that he wants now," Woods said. "There are some young blokes like Mitchell Moses, Luke Brooks and James Tedesco that have grown of age a little bit. "They're going to have to show a bit more leadership qualities without Robbie Farah being there this year. So we're going to have to step up and deliver."

Meanwhile, South Sydney captain Greg Inglis said Farah's arrival at the Rabbitohs had been nothing but positive after his difficult end at the Tigers. "He's a different voice around the group," Inglis said. "Him and (Damien) Cooky have been training really well together, they've been terrific. Bouncing off each other and getting ideas, which makes our forward pack a lot better."

The comments from Woods headlined the NRL's public event, which included the NRL's new "Let's make history, let's make it together" slogan. Exiled Cronulla fullback Ben Barba appeared in a number of highlights packages prior to the main event, while round one's opposing captains each walked out to meet each other on stage. "When I look at the group of leaders ... I am heartened to know the game will have a very strong season," NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg said.

Hahaha yep he must of missed that stuff.
Woods just doing his bit to ensure a bumper crowd.
The whole league world knows that at this point in time the Tiges are weak in the no.9 position.

The only thing I can see Woods lighting a fuse on is a joint, because the bloke is mellow to the MAX.

Well the boys certainly have something to prove early on in the season after that Raiders game last season - will be heart breaking for Teddy and Moses if they don't stand up.

Put Georgie or Sam on their backs early. They'll forget about footy and get grubby.

The Burgess boys all have poor ball control, just make first contact under the ball and they will drop it.

A drama for the two players involoved, but it doesnt seem to have bothered anyone else. Has either even been a disruption?
