Woods was relieved to make a successful return from a fractured foot after 11 weeks out but didn't hide his frustration about the Sharks' calamitous 14-12 defeat to his former team.

Furious Cronulla coach John Morris labelled the match "one of the worst performances I've seen from this club" and accused his senior players of failing to step up when it counted.

Sharks add two years to Nikora NRL deal

Sharks add two years to Nikora NRL deal Briton Nikora's first 13 games of NRL football have been enough to win an extension with Cronulla until the end of 2022. The rising New Zealand star has added two further seasons to a deal that wasn't set to expire until next year. Athletic performances in 13 games on the right edge have convinced Sharks bosses of his talent, surging to the top of the competition for line breaks by second-rowers, level with the eight of Penrith powerhouse Viliame Kikau. Less was expected from the 21-year-old, who impressed in the pre-season and bonded quickly with compatriot Shaun Johnson both on and off the field.

Front-rower Aaron Woods will make a mid-season switch to Cronulla Sharks from Canterbury Bulldogs . It is understood the Bulldogs , Sharks and Woods 's management came to an agreement on Tuesday morning and Woods is believed to have taken a pay cut to join the club for the remainder

The Cronulla -Sutherland Sharks are an Australian professional rugby league team based in Cronulla , in the Sutherland Shire, Southern Sydney, New South Wales.

Woods, 28, admitted the Sharks underestimated the last-placed Bulldogs and said the entire team was caught napping.

"You can probably say a bit of complacency slipped in," Woods said at training on Thursday.

"But if we're going to be honest with ourselves, it's the whole group. It's not just a couple of guys.

"We were disappointed in the way we played. It wasn't like we were throwing the ball around, it was simple errors in the play-the-ball.

"If you want to be a top four side, you've got to be a lot better than that."

Cronulla completed their sets at a dreadful 62 per cent against Canterbury and produced 16 errors.

The experienced Woods declared those statistics are completely unacceptable for a club tipped to contend for the title.

Sharks v Broncos: Josh Morris publicly calls out Cronulla’s goal kickers after loss

Sharks v Broncos: Josh Morris publicly calls out Cronulla’s goal kickers after loss The Sharks slumped to their third straight loss after the depleted Broncos scored a comeback 24-22 win on Sunday.

Aaron Woods (born 13 March 1991) is an Australian rugby league footballer who plays as a prop for the Cronulla Sharks in the NRL and Australia at international level.

Aaron Woods is set to play for Cronulla this Friday night after completing a mid-season switch from Canterbury .

"If you want to win a game of NRL, let alone park football, you've got to complete at more than [that]," he said.

"So, if we do that to Brisbane, the same thing's going to happen again. We need to hold the ball."

Though the Broncos are struggling badly, Woods believes the Sharks are set for a thorough test up the middle at PointsBet Stadium.

And the NSW and Australian representative insisted Cronulla won't replicate the fatal mistake of expecting a cruisy victory.

"We're not taking these guys lightly at all," Woods said.

"They're a really good young squad coming through and they've copped a bit of flak over this season [but] there's been games that they've been unreal."

Finally fully fit, Woods is named to start in the front-row this weekend with Andrew Fifita unavailable through suspension.

Woods was personally elated to punch out 49 minutes and run for 139 metres versus Canterbury after a long rehab period.

Sharks' major dilemma as star recruit benched Cronulla coach John Morris must decide whether to back his club's star recruit or return to an in-form youngster to arrest the Sharks' slide.

AARON Woods began the day training with the Bulldogs , by the afternoon he was in Cronulla kit, as the mid-season deal is signed. Woods would know. The former NSW and Australia front-rower saw out barely eight months of his four-year contract with the Bulldogs after joining from the Wests Tigers.

"The result was pretty poor but just to get through the game and get rid of the head noise, just to know you can get through a game now is pretty good," Woods said.

"I was pretty excited to come to training this week and sort of make amends for what we did on the weekend.

"You can do all the preparation but it's not like playing a game. You've got to get out there and throw your body around."

He praised rising forwards Braden Hamlin-Uele and Jack Williams – who have both re-signed with Cronulla – for their tremendous growth in his absence.

"They've been playing some enormous footy ... To come back and hear how vocal they were on the field after 10 weeks, it was unreal. It sort of lifted myself," Woods said.

"They've come leaps and bounds from where they started and it's a credit to them because they've worked so hard.

"I'd hate to be the coach now because it's going to be a tough selection for him, who he's going to pick in the 17."
