Attending Geelong Grammar School on a cricket scholarship, Wood came to the attention of Bulldogs recruitment manager Scott Clayton after his performances in school football as a medium-sized running midfielder with a strong leap.
Wood made his debut for the Western Bulldogs against the West Coast Eagles at the Etihad Stadium. He had 14 disposals. He went on to play the next week against Brisbane but was not selected for finals matches.
