It was a successful 2015 season for Wests Tigers prop forward Aaron Woods who achieved many milestones and personal achievements throughout the year.

The Leichhardt junior played 20 games for the Club during the season, and only missed four games due to a minor knee complaint in Round 4 plus his representative duties.

Representative jerseys came thick and fast for Woods who, after making his international debut late last year, appeared once again in the green and gold during the ANZAC Test.

Following on from that, the 24-year-old chalked up another three State of Origin games — scoring his first try in Game II of the series — as the Blues eventually lost the series 2-1.

Stepping up to captain the team four times during the year, Woods also notched up his 100th appearance in the NRL against the Melbourne Storm at his local Leichhardt Oval. 

He crossed for his first Club try of the season in the final game of the year against the Dragons, and ended the year on a high — winning the 2015 Dally M Prop of the Year Award, and finishing equal second in the overall voting behind Jonathan Thurston.

Best Game — Round 2 vs. St  George Illawarra Dragons

In a little over 50 minutes, Woods produced an incredible 271 metres from his 25 carries against the Dragons, as well as 34 tackles and two offloads, as Wests Tigers cruised past their opponents to emerge with a 22-4 victory from their first home game of the year. 

 

Season Highlight — Round 21 vs. Melbourne Storm

In a year full of highlights, the stars aligned for Woods to notch up his 100th NRL match at his local ground of Leichhardt Oval. While there was difficulty running through the milestone banner before the game, the Wests Tigers had no problems running through the Storm, as the side delivered Woods a memorable win in front of the Leichhardt faithful.

The prop forward led from the front with 180 metres from his 19 carries, as well as an offload and 27 tackles, as Wests Tiges emerged with a surprise 34-16 victory.
