“After using Pure Sport CBD I found a big difference in my sleep quality. Not only was my sleep better, I found I was recovering quicker from long days out on the training field and not aching as much. I look forward to seeing the long term benefits.” – Jason Woodward
Woodward played for the Upper Hutt Premier team and was a regular in the Upper Hutt Leader.
In 2010, Woodward made the New Zealand U20s and represented New Zealand at the IRB Junior World Championship in Argentina, helping the team to win the competition undefeated.
Woodward played his first provincial season with the Wellington Lions in 2011. On debut he scored all of Wellington Lions’ three tries to beat Taranaki 23–5 in the 2011 season’s opening game.
Woodward joined the Melbourne Rebels following a strong 2012 ITM Cup campaign with the Wellington Lions. However an injury sustained pre-season delayed his debut until round six of the 2013 Super Rugby season. Woodward made his debut in an unfortunate 64–7 belting from the Sharks in Durban.
Back in Australia for round eight in Perth, Woodward started on the right wing against the Western Force. He scored his first and second tries in Super Rugby and helped the Rebels win 30–23.
June 2014, Woodward joined the Hurricanes after signing a two-year deal to return to his home franchise. The then 24-year-old returned to Wellington at the end of the 2014 Super Rugby competition ending a two-season stint with the Melbourne Rebels. Woodward’s Super Rugby season would be soon over after he broke his ankle playing club rugby in Wellington. He suffered the injury when he was caught between two defenders while playing at centre for club side Upper Hutt against Oriental Rongotai at the Polo Ground in Miramar. Woodward had been used only sparingly by the Hurricanes throughout the 2015 season with just three appearances, but had been in good form since starting the opening two matches in South Africa against the Lions and Bulls. With Nehe Milner-Skudder and James Marshall also used at fullback, Woodward’s only other appearance had been against his former team the Rebels at Westpac Stadium in round seven.
On 12 September 2016 it was announced that Woodward had signed a two-year deal with Aviva Premiership club Bristol Rugby.
Following Bristol Rugby’s relegation at the end of the 2016-17 Aviva Premiership season it was reported Woodward had a relegation clause in his contract, which was reported to be activated by Gloucester Rugby, where Woodward would link up with some of his former Hartpury College friends.
