I am confused.
I know aarons dad from when I was at balmain. Aarons childhood hero was nik kosef and cliff lyonsHe was, I have a friend (Manly fan) who worked for the Tigers Physio (prior to Farah family taking the contract). When Sharon went in to see the Physio he said he always wanted to play for us!
Woods does get good post contact metres.
Look he's passed his best. But I am glad he finally gets to play for us apparently he was a manly tragic as a kid.
But if the carrot was immediate first grade , which two of the current players would you personally boot to see them get their debut ??Woods is mud, no leg drive, no shoulder in defense, no urgency, no quick play the ball.
He used to have a great late offload, but he can’t be bothered even doing that any more
I agree with shifting the squad power base if that’s what needed to happen.
I don’t agree with promising juniors getting so annoyed with lack of opportunities or their place In The pecking order that they ask for a release, especially when it’s clear that they deserve a chance far more than some of the ones “above” them.

Ben turbo.Oh and it’s not just a game they’ve probably been promised first grade permanently, so who are you off loading to accommodate them ??
I still think that was a good move imo, our pack dynamic wasn't great. Too many big forwards, where they tended to go alright for stints but get tired and fall out of games. Him and Taupau were good at their peak but they were never going to be long-term/sustainable options for us. AFB is still good to watch but we were good to move him on imoIs it any worse a deal than letting one of the then current top props (AFB) walk for nothing ?
