Since Josh Reynolds left Hull FC mid way through the season, there has been a lot of question marks over where his future lies.
Some expected him to retire whilst others presumed he’d have another crack at the game down under. It seems as though those who predicted the latter are right.
According to Sky Sports Radio new Canterbury Bulldogs coach Cameron Ciraldo has handed the former Hull FC halfback a three month train and trial contract for 2023.
The opportunity will see Reynolds strive to cement a spot in the Bulldogs’ top 30 for next season where he may be an important asset as a option in the spine should the likes of Kyle Flanagan suffer with injury.
Reynolds is well loved at Canterbury after making over 100 appearances for the club from 2011-17. However, he was less successful following his departure to Wests Tigers in 2018 making on 22 appearances.
That’s a few less than he made at Hull FC where he initially shone alongside Marc Sneyd before injuries derailed his Black and Whites career but the 33-year-old now has a chance at one last hoorah back where it all started.
Reynolds has reportedly been training by himself recent and will continue to train through the off-season so he is ready to have a good crack at making the Bulldogs’ team in 2023.
If Reynolds can remain injury free and capture a fraction of the magic we know he is capable of, he could be quite the asset for the Bulldogs.
