The new deal is a significant boost leading into this weekend’s NRL Auckland Nines tournament and secures the prop forward until the end of the 2017 season with the option of a fourth year (2018) within the contract.
Woods made his NRL debut in the 2011 season and has gone on to play 64 matches for the Wests Tigers, already establishing himself as part of the Club’s leadership group at just 22-years of age.
An impressive run of form, including winning Wests Tigers’ Player of the Year Award in 2012 led to Woods playing two matches for New South Wales last year.
“I’m really happy with the new deal, it’s great to get it out of the way before the season starts so I can concentrate on footy,” Woods said.
“As a local junior, all I wanted to do is stay with the Club so I’m really excited.
“We have a good platform for the next couple of years with talented young guys coming through and that is one of the reasons why I wanted to stay.”
