Josh Reynolds is back at his hometown club, the club that he made his named with and the club he wishes he never left.
He’s not guaranteed to play and is striving to earn a place in their top 30 for next season and 30 is the magic number for Reynolds who revealed that, despite stints at Wests Tigers and Hull FC, he tried to return to Canterbury “about 30 times.”
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, he said: “I’ve dreamt about this. I’ve tried to come back to the Dogs about 30 times and it just hasn’t worked.
“To be given this opportunity honestly, you could pay me a $1 a week and I’m not just saying that, it’s just how I feel.
“I’m at a point in my life, I’ve got other things going on and I just want to play.
“I want to represent that emblem, it’s just what I want to do.”
He also reflected on the moves in his career saying that his move overseas to Hull FC “didn’t really work.”
He said: “I’ve had a lot a of deals where, where they have tried to make me the marquee guy, at the Tigers it didn‘t work, it was a dud.
“I went overseas and it didn’t really work either. Now I come back, first of all, it has nothing to do with the money. Money comes and goes.”
Hull FC have brought in some quality to replace him signing Castleford’s Jake Trueman, Newcastle Knight’s Tex Hoy and are rumoured to be signing Jake Clifford.
