If reports are believed, it seems Wests Tigers pair James Tedesco and Aaron Woods are a packaged deal.

It has been reported by multiple sources over the last week that the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have tabled four-year deals to the Origin pair hoping to convince them to make the move to Belmore.

The latest twist comes today with reports by the Daily Telegraph that Sydney Roosters are just keen to sign fullback Tedesco but are also keen to sign his Wests Tigers captain Aaron Woods.

It seems likely now that where ever they sign in 2018, Tedesco and Woods will be playing together.

The package deal is understood to be around the $2 million a season mark and surprisingly to many, Woods is getting his fair share of it.

There is no doubt that James Tedesco is a superstar. He'll be one of the first picked by Laurie Daley when it comes time to name his NSW Origin side and rightly so. He's a game changer and a match winner.

Woods on the other hand, not so much. He solid, without being spectacular.

With rumours that the Bulldogs might be looking to move on their club captain James Graham to accommodate him, many pundits have been left scratching their heads.

While James Graham is making try-saving tackles on the wing, Aaron Woods is getting trampled like a halfback by opposing forwards.

If the Bulldogs were to let Graham walk, 15 clubs would be on the phone within minutes to his manager looking to sign him.

There is no doubt that signing Tedesco would be a massive upgrade for both the Roosters and Bulldogs but if Woods is part of the deal, at what expense?
