Former Canterbury captain Michael Ennis has conceded the Bulldogs have lost out in signing Aaron Woods at the cost losing iconic figure James Graham.
The retired hooker said running metres and other statistics wouldn’t be enough for Woods at Belmore.
“(Graham) has been the heart and soul. Paul McGregor has been treasuring what James Graham has brought to that club,” Ennis said on Fox Sports.
“Aaron Woods, there is so much focus on Woods being a front-rower.
“We know what we get from David Klemmer. He’s aggressive, he welcomes the contact, he takes personal battles against opposition front-rowers.
“Aaron Woods stepping into Graham’s shoes, in the opening two rounds and it’s only been two rounds, let’s not go too hard, he’s been a shadow of what James Graham has done at the Dragons.
“For me Aaron Woods at the moment is just knocking out his numbers but in terms of really leading this Canterbury-Bankstown forward pack, I haven’t seen that yet.”
Woods’ former side Wests Tigers are also 2-0 while the Bulldogs are yet to claim a win in 2018.
