After a brief VFA career with Oakleigh Peter Wood was recruited by Melbourne, but failed to advance beyond the reserves. The 1965 season found him at Fitzroy where he quickly established himself in the seniors and went on to play a total of 73 VFL games in half a dozen seasons, kicking 12 goals. Most of his football with the Lions was played at full back where he was solidly effective and hard to beat.
