He made a impact straight away last week , not for long but he got the dogs on the back foot , not bad for a guy coming back from injury , this may play right into our hands as the season progresses , he gets fitter and faster as some of our guys may get injured or start playing with niggle injuries , don't write him off yet he could turn to be gold come finals time , yes we will play in the finals cause we can

In NZ when brooksie was coming through we were hearing that he was the next andrew johns.

I suppose anything can happen but looks like that calls gonna fall short of the mark.

Was there any credibility around this when he was 16-17 though? If so what happened?
I watched him closely for the Rhinos; SG Ball and U20s along with Moses and Siro and they were a cut above. I thought he had the potential to be like Johns. There was another player who was really talented too forgot his name he played reserve grade @ the eels now or recently. But I was always more excited to see Moses dominated in that SG Ball Granny against the Milf and Brenko.

moses was always more dynamic covering fullback both halves etc. Brooks was the steady solid player. I think they'll probably reunite later in their careers.

Then again I watched A LOT of TMM U20s and a bit Keebra too and he was very very good but hasn't done much in first grade either (except his debut vs Broncs).

I guess first grade is a lot tougher yard stick for grading talent than it is to see them in SG Ball etc

You may have opposed sessions during training, but they're nothing like the real thing.
Up quick, line speed, tackle, back 10...up quick line speed, tackle.... Repeat reoeat.
Bringing down front rowers and back rowers at full pelt can never be replicated at training g

Of course match fitness and a good run will help him.

The question was does he look to have lost some weight?

Suggesting that that could be why he has picked up an injury or two?

Golly gosh, you really need to spell it out some times.

I think he has lost some bulk both in the upper body and his legs...

Could be a new approach with all the hammy issues he's had to rehab and try something different..Reynolds mentioned that himself one night on 360..I'd also say with a fracture of the scapula he wouldn't have been doing much in the gym...

One thing is I think he will be good for us if he can stay on the park we certainly lifted I feel when he came on against the Dogs...can't really point out exactly why but there is a looseness to Reynold's play like even he doesn't know what he's gunna do...could come a cropper at anytime but also win us games...

Let's hope it's not to his detriment. As his fitness improves a slightly lighter Josh Reynolds could be a little sharper than the old one.

As suggested he may bulk up a bit once he gets more active

the year the sharks won the GF Barba (I think )was missing in the first part of the season. Then he was on the bench adding real impact against tired players.
I was doing a lot of long weekend drives down to Jindy that year and listen to Grandstand. All the Sharks games seemed the same. First half was an arm wrestle. Second half Barba would come on fresh and within 20mins they had the game won.
Hopefully we have great success with Josh coming on fresh in the second half.

Ok so 12 rounds in and we havent seen much of Josh.

No doubt he has played a big part behind closed doors but only the odd moment on the field.

A concern I have is he looks to have lightened off. His body doesnt look as robust as i did when he played Origin. Anyone else seeing this?
Could this be due to him not having the training facilities he had previously
