Hull FC halfback Josh Reynolds’ next move reportedly confirmed

The Daily Mail had reported yesterday that Hull FC halfback Josh Reynolds wanted to stay in the UK and presumably end his career in Super League.

However, there have been conflicting reports in the Australian press which suggest that he is heading back home to Australia.

In Fox Sports’ ‘transfer whispers’, Reynolds was headlined as saying ‘Reynolds Returns Home.’

May 1 has been and gone, so wheeling and dealing by Super League clubs is very much underway as teams aim to go one better in 2023, but it doesn’t appear as though Reynolds will be one making the move to a rival.

For Hull FC, they haven’t hit the heights expected of them in the Super League era, but under head coach Brett Hodgson, they look to be building something different at the MKM Stadium.

However, if rumours are true about Jake Trueman joining Hull from Castleford Tigers for 2023 and beyond, it left a question mark over the current halfbacks’ futures at the club.

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 has once more been in and out of the team as the likes of Joe Lovodua and Ben McNamara impress in the halves.

Reynolds isn’t getting any younger at 33 and has been confirmed to be heading for an immediate exit in recent days.

It would bring an end to a nightmare spell in East Yorkshire with the halfback reportedly Hull’s most expensive player ever in their history.
