“I’m really excited for the next few years," said Wood.

"I’ve enjoyed my time here so far. We’ve got a great squad and we’re playing well, so it was a no brainer to sign.

“To keep people like Dave [Fifita] at the club is great and we just want to keep building.

"The aim is to be playing in semi-final rugby and, for myself personally, I want to be playing in a Challenge Cup or Grand Final.”
