Adam Reynolds suffers major blow for Brisbane Broncos ahead of new season

NRL Round 15 Preview

Adam Reynolds – Brisbane Broncos’ most important player – faces a race against time to be fit for round one after missing all of the club’s trial games through injury.

The Courier Mail has revealed that Reynolds has “general soreness” that will see the $2.4 million playmaker rested to ensure his fitness for Brisbane’s round one clash against Souths on March 11.

“At this stage, Adam won’t play next week,” Walters said.

“We will see how he goes but he is not 100 per cent over the line.

“If he’s not OK next week against the Cowboys, we’re OK with that, we’ll just make sure he is fully fit for round one.”

He had already signed a three-year deal with the Queensland outfit, but even though the Rabbitohs wouldn’t give the halfback longer than a year, Reynolds is already thinking of extending that deal even further.

“My goal is to push on for longer than three years at the Broncos,” Reynolds told the Daily Telegraph.

“I have to take things a year at a time, but I don’t see this as a short-term thing. I want to repay the Broncos for the faith they have shown in me at this stage of my career.

“Obviously I get niggling injuries every now and then, but if you get caught up listening to the haters and the people trying to bring you down and telling you that you are no good, you will only fall into a trap of being no good.

“Overall the body is feeling good. I’m 31, I’ve been in the NRL for a long time, but to be honest I believe I can sign another contract with the Broncos after this one.

“That’s my plan. I have two years after this season and I believe my body will hold up for the three years or I wouldn’t have signed for that long.”

Reynolds, who has represented New South Wales five times during his career, is currently 31 years old which will mean he will be 34 when his current contract ends.
