Woods started his professional career at Newcastle Falcons in 2003 but suffered a badly broken leg at the end of his first season and was sidelined for 18 months. On his return to the game he quickly made his mark on the Falcons first team and earned a call up to play for the England Saxons in the 2006 Churchill Cup.
He captained Tigers for the first time in the vital LV= Cup win at Harlequins in 2011/12.
On 5 September 2012, Woods announced via Twitter that he would be retiring from rugby due to a wrist injury.
