Josh Reynolds has a new club following his exit from Hull FC!
It may come as a surprise to many, but Reynolds will be a Canterbury Bulldogs player in 2023 with Fox Sports breaking the news.
“He is a Bulldog. It’s a strange decision. I thought when he left the NRL that’d be it,” NRL hero Gorden Tallis said on the show.
“I haven’t watched him over there (Super League). Maybe he’s been setting the world on fire and he comes back with that energy we all know he’s got. The crowd loves him and those young kids at the Bulldogs will follow him.”
Reynolds joined the Black and Whites from NRL side Wests Tigers ahead of the 2021 season and started that year like a house on fire.
Unfortunately, a serious injury cut his stellar season short – as did Covid-19 which hit Hull at just the wrong time as they were building form – with Reynolds working hard in the off-season to get himself right.
Due to injuries and suspensions, the outspoken Aussie was once more in and out of the team as the likes of Joe Lovodua and Ben McNamara impressed in the halves.
Reynolds isn’t getting any younger at 33, but his experience could have proved vital at another Super League club given the opportunity.
Of course, having been on a marquee contract at FC, it remains to be seen whether another rival side could actually afford to pay for the halfback – unless the Aussie took a substantial pay cut.
Having said that, Reynolds has been linked with a move to the Mount Pritchard Mounties – the Canterbury Bulldogs feeder team – and the noise surrounding that potential move is getting louder.
Of course, Reynolds has often been labelled a hero at Belmore with the Bulldogs and was even named in the team of the century last week.
