Sea Eagles sign Aaron Woods for rest of 2023 season

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have today signed experienced prop Aaron Woods for the remainder of the 2023 season, effective immediately.

A former NSW and Australian representative, Woods has played 252 first grade games since making his NRL debut for the Wests Tigers in 2011.

The 32-year-old forward has also had previous stints at Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks, and St George-Illawarra Dragons.

Sea Eagles Coach Anthony Seibold welcomed Woods to Manly.

“Aaron adds experience and depth to our middle forwards,’’ Seibold said.

“Competition for spots is something we have worked really hard on over the pre-season and ‘Woodsy’ will certainly add to that.

“He has played for Australia and NSW and he brings that wealth of experience.”

Woods said he was looking forward to joining the Sea Eagles, a club he proudly grew up supporting.

“It’s a strong club Manly. I’m very excited to be playing alongside the likes of Jake and Tom Trbojevic, and Daly Cherry-Evans, the Qld Captain and Australian vice-captain,’’ Woods said.

“And then there is some exciting young players there in Haumole Olakau’atu and Tolu Koula. If I can pass on my experiences to these young guys, then I will be happy.

“I just want to buy into what Anthony Seibold wants to do and help drive the culture and standards at Manly.”

The Sea Eagles can also confirm the Club has officially released forwards Viliami Fifita and Alec Tuitavake and wish them well in their future endeavours.
