Andrew Ettingshausen – Aaron Woods has been a Godsend
The Cronulla Sharks secured their maiden premiership in 2016 and tonight, they continue their charge towards another NRL Grand Final.
Tonight the men from the Sutherland Shire play a sudden-death semi-final against the Penrith Panthers at Allianz Stadium from 7:40pm AEST with the winner going on to face the Melbourne Storm next Friday Night at AAMI Park.
Mark Levy and Mark Riddell caught up with club legend Andrew Ettingshausen on Macquarie Sports Radio Breakfast to preview the game.
Ettingshausen says “Our forward pack is incredibly strong and Aaron Woods has been a godsend and I think he couldn’t have come in at a better time for the Sharkies.”
It’s a huge wrap for Woods whose has a turbulent year of late. The former NSW and Australian big man was forced out at the Bulldogs only 6 months into a 4 year big money deal to join the Sharks mid-season.
Ettingshausen heaped further praise on Woods, telling Mark Levy and Mark Riddell “If you look at our bench it’s incredibly strong with Segeyaro also there but Woodsey, when he comes on he makes such a difference.”
“I think he’s turned his career around in a very short space of time. At one stage there, clubs weren’t that impressed with how he was playing and now he’s just really turned it on and I think he’s been close to the Sharks best the last few weeks.”
