Serious Question - can Woods raise his running speed above jogging pace?

Post by stevied » Fri 19 May, 2017 10:12 pm

I don't know whether you guys have asked yourself the same question but do you think Woods is actually able to raise his running speed above jogging pace? I know I'll get slammed for being a constant critic, but, to me this guy is the most overrated prop in the game. Jogs to the line, gets caught in an upper body wrestle and eventually plays it 5 minutes later. Does he ever and I mean ever....bend the line with hard running then play the ball quickly?? I love someone's metaphor on the live thread. He reminds you of an elephant slowly sinking to the ground after being hit by a tranquilizer slug. Hilarious!

Can't wait to see our new, REAL, prop, Russell Packer smash it up next year.

To be fair I think he was carrying an injury tonight for sure.

It's hard to move fast running backwards. He turns his body at the line so regularly to get in position for an offload and then throws the bell out the back to someone to lose metres. The injury played a role tonight

Tied of him hitting the line and turning his back ,it is so annoying it happens on every carry, the club has certainly upgraded next year .

But tonight was typical. He just doesn't run the ball hard enough for a leader of the pack and my question is - is he able to run fast ever, at all?? He has to be the slowest running forward in the game.

Plus I don't like him at all after his selfish and brainless contract shenanigans, ha ha! Good luck to the Bulldogs paying 900k. Laughable really.

He needs a *truck reversing beep beep beep beep* sound effect played during each of his "runs"

Nah, half his runs are half hearted and soft....going forwards!

He has been doing this for many years now. I havent rated him since the days he was clean shaven with the buzz cut. He was good back then.

My question is, why don't opposition props belt him?
If he runs soft how come he doesn't get lined up and whacked.

I turned on him years ago... but i didnt recognise it myself first, I was told from those in the roosters system that video identified that it was best to concede tackles and hold him up. It allow the D line to set and it forfeits his run metres as we would need another pig to try and find a quick ptb to get set running. The person even joked he was so one dimensional that you would give him 15m a set and he would cost you 100's of metres a game.

I know it was brought to his attention by Taylor, but it never seemed to hit home. Best player loss in our history...

No one puts big hits on anymore. The attacker hits the ground and then bounces up for a quick play the ball and a defensive line that is not set. It is all about multiple men in the tackle and holding the bloke up so the line gets set

Agreed but at least them should be some fear by the opposition that it might happen. They have no fear that they will get swatted by running at Woods or any other defender in our team.
