They have both performed admirably this season in light of a huge injury toll in the forwards for the Wests Tigers, and now, both Aaron Woods and Andrew Fifita have extended their contracts with the club.
For Woods, his new deal sees him remain with the club until the 2014 season, whereas for Fifita, an option was exercised for Fifita to remain with the club until the end of the 2012 season.
In what is his debut season, Woods is playing very well, as he makes himself an important part of the Tigers pack, with 7 games to his name to date.
“I feel very privileged to be playing first grade and being surrounded by all of these great players.
“Being a local junior I’m extremely proud to be now playing for the elite squad, it’s a dream come true really,” the Balmain junior said.
Stephen Humphreys, the Wests Tigers Chief Executive, says that the re-signing of two promising youngsters, is an important piece to the puzzle for the club.
“Aaron and Andrew are showing maturity beyond their years and are perfect examples of the depth we now have throughout our player roster,” Humphreys said.
“They’ve both had a lot more game time this year which will only benefit their development and the club in the long run.”
