Wests Tigers Prop Aaron Woods was straight to the point when asked to describe the teams performance in the opening round loss to Newcastle.

The way we played, it wasnt up to first grade standard. It was very poor, Woods said.

We have watched the video and seen the areas we need to improve on. We will fix it up and be better for it this week.




This Sundays clash against Penrith Panthers at Campbelltown Sports Stadium marks Woods 50th NRL game for Wests Tigers. Since his NRL debut against the Bulldogs in the opening round of the 2011 season, Woods represented City Origin and the Prime Minister's XIII in 2012.

He is set to start the game off the interchange bench with Coach Mick Potter sticking with Jack Buchanan, who played 41 minutes in an impressive NRL debut in the loss to the Knights.

Its nice (to reach 50 games) but I just want to play week in, week out and do my job for the team, Woods said.

Penriths forwards played really well last week and got some good go forward with their two hookers behind them.

We cant give them any opportunities. We must be ready to play from the very first minute.

Wests Tigers will be hoping their good run against Penrith will continue on Sunday, having won five of the past encounters between the two clubs. Wests Tigers beat Penrith 26-18 at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in round 19 last year.
