Woodson wants Hamilton

JIM BENDER -- Winnipeg Sun

WINNIPEG -- Just two weeks ago, Sean Woodson enjoyed his finest hour in a Blue Bombers uniform.

The import linebacker recorded six defensive tackles, one special teams tackle, a quarterback sack and a knockdown as Winnipeg whipped his former team, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, 44-14.

"Sean Woodson had his best game of the year against his previous team," Bombers head coach Jim Daley said after that match. "I told him we're playing Hamilton again this week, next week and the week after."

NO PRETENDING

Well, Daley will not have to pretend this week as the Bombers will indeed play the Ticats again in Hamilton tomorrow night.

"Woodson thought we were playing Hamilton last week because Hamilton was practising here all week," Daley joked yesterday. "I walked him down every day to the locker-room to tell him we were playing against those guys. I told him we're saving Ottawa the travel cost, that's Hamilton we're playing again.

"So he'll be ready this week, too. He played an outstanding football game against Hamilton. He didn't know we weren't playing Hamilton last Friday and he is playing Hamilton this Friday so he's in for a good run."

Woodson, however, was a little sheepish when reminded of Daley's jabs.

"I don't necessarily know about that," said the 6-foot-1, 240-pounder, who is tied for second in the CFL with 46 defensive tackles. "I had a pretty good game but, defensively, we all had a real good game. And offensively, we had a real good game. It was one of the few games this year that we put in 60 minutes in all facets of the game and if we can do that again we'll be coming out with a W.
