Queensland prop Matt Scott says he is very familiar with the threat posed by NSW debutant Aaron Woods because of how prominently he figures on the tip sheet for NRL games.


Asked for his reaction to the selection of the Wests Tigers prop for State of Origin II at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday, Cowboys co-captain Scott replied: Im not surprised hes there. Im probably surprised it took so long hes been knocking on the door for a long time.


Hes a quality front-rower and I know when we play the Tigers we look at Robbie Farah running off the momentum Woods creates when he takes the ball up, so thats going to be a danger for us. Hell certainly add something to the NSW pack. Weve really got to stop his momentum.


Woods and Blues hooker Farah will obviously be trying to use the combination they have developed at club level when NSW attempts to clinch the series by winning Game Two. The Blues won the opening game 14-6 at ANZ Stadium on June 5.
