Ex-Hull FC star Josh Reynolds NRL career “is over”

Big NRL signings don’t always pay off in Super League though we have seen success with Bevan French and Jai Field at Wigan Warriors, Paul Vaughan at Warrington Wolves, Sam Lisone at Leeds Rhinos and Curtis Sironen at St Helens work, they don’t all work.

Not every new recruit from down under is like Hull FC’s Jake Clifford and Hull KR will be hoping Brad Schneider can have similar success at the end of the season.

However, though fans will argue that fans are one extreme or another there is one man who had a very up and down spell in Super League.

Josh Reynolds had an up and down spell in Super League signing for Hull FC ahead of the 2021 season on what was reported as a major money move, before parting ways after just 18 months.

He was exceptional at first but absences took their toll.

On the back of that he returned to the NRL to try and find his enjoyment in rugby again and there was only one place to go, that being the club where he debuted in 2011, Canterbury Bulldogs.

The return wasn’t straight forward though as he signed on at Canterbury to a train-and-trial deal earning $1,000-a-week in stark contrast to the money he reportedly earned in Super League.

He would eventually earn a place in the top 30 and play seven NRL games for the Bulldogs but he is reportedly struggling with staying fit and now the halfback has given up his top 30 spot so the Bulldogs can sign Toby Sexton from Gold Coast Titans.

Thus, the Daily Telegraph has reported that his NRL career is over.
