    Apparently he is on the market, Thoughts ??

    From NRL.com

    NRL.com can reveal several clubs have been sounded out about potential interest in the Australian and NSW front-rower just six months into a four-year deal with the Bulldogs, including his former club the Wests Tigers.

    The Bulldogs insist they aren't actively shopping Woods around, however NRL.com understands the club would be open to discussions around allowing him out of his lucrative contract to ease their salary cap burden.

    Canterbury consider Josh Jackson and David Klemmer as the only two big-name players off limits to rival clubs, and are willing to consider any other offers that come their way in the coming months.

    We could do worse, especially if the dogs want to cover some of the cost.

    Here we go, the guys a bum, why he gets a rep jumper is beyond me, nothing but a pillow.

    Woods on the market.
    Yes please give him 500k, 600k he's exactly what we need blah blah blah.

    @rhugh89
    We would be silly to not throw our hat in the ring.
    140m a game and for many a year now.
    25-30tks a game for many a year now.
    Multiple offloads a game for many a year now.
    Plenty of work/leadership off the ball for many a year now.

    Id throw 700-800k at the dogs no problem at all.
    He aint a run flatout and try skittle the D line player, though he hits the line makes 3-4m more than usually gets a offload away or drops and gets a quick play the ball.
    Class new age prop forward.

    Keep in mind guys that the Bulldogs would be paying part of his salary

    I know some think he is soft or over-rated but his consistency and experience would be great for us

    157 NRL Games, 14 Origons and 15 Tests all by the age of 27

    He has cracked 100m+ every game this year and 150m+ 4 times

    To me it's about $. I don't think he is worth his market value. How much is he on at the dogs?

    Can you show me a prop in history that averages 300m a game and 50+ tackles a game?

    Ill put 2k on this with you right now, ill deposit it into @rhugh89 paypal account and he can deposit it to you if you show me 1 prop in history that does 300m 50+ tacckles for more than 10 games on average.
    Infact I'll exstand a Olive branch, find me any player in history to match 300m 50+tks and you get 2k.

    Otherwise you are being a trucking dipstick with nothing but sour chit talking.

    No you didnt, you showed you have zero idea of the current nrl system and future of a prop in the top tier of rugby league.

    Thanks for the chat, its been real.
