Local junior Aaron Woods says he can't wait for his first Leichhardt Oval game of 2015 when Wests Tigers take on the Canberra Raiders this weekend.

Woods, who grew up playing his junior football on the turf at Leichhardt and has quickly become a favourite son of the area, said he always looked forward to running out on the ground, but even more so this weekend for a Sunday afternoon game of football.

"It's always a massive confidence boost," Woods said. "I grew up down the road, so I don't need much more of a lift than to say that we're playing at Leichhardt Oval this weekend.

"I know the boys really love playing there, and you don't understand how ridiculous the atmosphere at the game is when you run out on to that field.

"The people are literally right on top of you and it's just an unreal experience.

"To be a part of that, it's just the best ever."
