Ben Woods has sadly had to accept that is career is finished. Woods has a wrist injury which has proven impossible to recover from. Woods originally suffered the injury against Newcastle almost 3 years ago. There have been several abortive attempts at a come back but now that the pain is so much that he can barely button his shirt he has decided that his race is run.
Woods enjoyed a good career at Leicester playing 70 games including a winning Premiership final, against London Irish in 2009, and scoring a try, to put Tigers 7 points clear, in the ultimately unsuccessful 2009 Heineken Cup final against Leinster.
Woods went to QEGS Wakefield, Durham University and Hughes Hall, Cambridge so post career employment shouldn't be too hard to find. He was also the Leicester representative for the Professional Rugby Players Association.
Woods started his professional career at Newcastle Falcons, playing 64 times, before coming to Leicester at the same as Toby Flood. He also represented England's second team, the "Saxons" 8 times including once at Welford Road against Ireland 'A' in 2008.
