What do you think the chances are of Woods coming back? Is it likely?
Hard to say. Possible not certain. Obviously that leaves a lot of space.
We need a quality back rower before a quality prop at this stage
Who do you have in mind?
Terepo , TPJ , Soliala , Rhys Martin or Bukuya not overly picky Yoss

Balmain 1994, but I assume you mean only Wests Tigers... you need to be more specific.

With Arthur on the skids at the Eels, the thought of an under pressure coach bringing in a high profile signing on a big contract will play out exactly the same as with the Dogs' debacle. I cannot imagine Woods agreeing to that destination.

I for one hope Ivan is not considering Aaron Woods at all. We have moved on now and we are trying to put the past behind us with a new culture and a fresh attitude. In my mind Woods rejoining the Tigers would be a step back and not be the right message. I actually think he could end up being disruptive. I am no great fan of his footy anyhow. We want a hard running mobile hard guy that will bend the line and get us some go-forward - and unfortunately, that is not the description describing Aaron that comes to mind.

The Woods situation will drag on a lot longer than the Ebye one. Unless some team gets an absolute bargain.
It will make great watching from where we sit.
So Moses was a E-bye?
Purchased on Ebay :lol:

Get Carney on minimum wage till end of year and partner him with Foran. Their problems are in the halves there forwards have been doing a good job.
Then they'd just have a pair of busted halves. Carney is hopeless now and has been for a couple of years...
Not suggesting anything than other for the rest of the season. He is not interested in money he just wants another crack.
Havnt seen him play of late, - like you - but he was a quality player and like Benji has something to prove.

I dunno, he's developed a good offload that would come in pretty handy, imo. Our current props are just bash and barge, which is fine, they are aggressive, but if someone like Thompson could tail Woods at speed waiting for the offload that would bring another aspect to our attack.

Matulino started the season offloading a bit, but it seems to have fallen by the wayside lately, whereas Woods' offloads are more consistent - the Dogs players are just too dumb to capitalise on them, they stand way too far back & flat footed!

I don't need to have seen him play recently. 0 tries, 2 linebreaks and 8 try assists in the ESL in 17 games in 2017 tells me all I need to know when his halves partner - Rob Lui - notched 6 tries, 23 line breaks and 23 try assists in 26 games. No clubs were knocking to bring him home. He never stood out in the ESL even in his time at Catalans. There is no reason to think he's suddenly going to turn it around and be a worthwhile NRL half.

He’d be swimming in stability at Parra. What a glutton.

Cant argue with stats!
Stop gap solution only. He is available, would play for next to nothing and might offer an alternative that would do both clubs a favour. Nothing more than that.
