Wests Tigers captain Aaron Woods says there's a lot of improvement left in his side this year as he seeks to lead the Club to its first finals berth since 2011.

As the Club prepares for a huge game on Sunday afternoon against the defending premiers at Leichhardt, Woods said he was pleased with the recent performances of his side to take them on the verge of the top eight, but said there was still plenty more work to be done.

Importantly, the representative forward said those areas for improvement were known to his team and things they were looking to work on over the final five weeks of the season.

"We've got a lot of improvement left in us this year," Woods enthused.

"We get a bit excited at times with the footy sometimes, instead of getting into that grinding style of play. You know, we'll make a break and then we'll try and score off the next play when we probably should build a bit more pressure, so that's definitely something we can work on.

"But at the same time, I think our goal-line defence has been really good. Our defence coming out of yardage could be a bit better, though, to put some more pressure on sides.

"So yeah, there's definitely a lot of improvement left in our side."
