AARON Woods has only been at Belmore for three days, but he is already looking comfortable in the blue and white.

The former Wests Tigers skipper, who was raised above a newsagent on Norton St and dons a tattoo of Leichhardt's postcode on his arse, has officially moved on from his seven-year tenure at the Tigers.

Woods is excited about his fresh start at Canterbury alongside close friend David Klemmer.

He is equally pumped about playing under new coach Dean Pay - the former Dogs prop turned man mentor.

Pay has vowed to bring back the Bulldogs' bite in 2018 and Woods believes this aggressive mindset will suit his game.

"It's a good thing. Even the style he wants us to play suits us front-rowers a lot more," Woods said.

Woods also spoke about why he won't have to change his style at Canterbury and why he can't wait to work alongside Kieran Foran this season.
