Canterbury Bulldogs confirm big opportunity for former Hull FC halfback but it’ll be tough for former Wests Tigers star

In the NRL clubs are beginning to confirm their squads for the 2023 season.

Canberra Raiders did as such last week naming 29 out of the 30 players permitted leaving open a spot presumably for former Huddersfield Giants hooker Danny Levi to take over.

Today, the Canterbury Bulldogs have followed suit naming 29 of their top 30 squad for the 2023 season as their pre-season preparations begin.

The available players within that 29 have also been joined by the NSW Cup players at the club as well as the train and trial contracted stars including former Wests Tigers and Hull FC star Josh Reynolds.

The Daily Telegraph today revealed that the halfback was earning $1,000 a week on this contract compared to the $16,500 he earnt a week at Wests Tigers.

However, with the confirmation of these 29 players, it underlines the opportunity in front of him as he certainly has the chance to claim that last spot within the 30 and earn a bigger deal and settle his place as his beloved club where he started his career.

However, to nail down that spot, Reynolds will have to fend off the other players on train and trial contracts at the Bulldogs.

Perhaps this opening would not have been available but for the decision of Josh Jackson to retire.

This has lessened the pressure on their salary cap and could also see former St Helens star Luke Thompson appointed captain in 2023.
