Last time I saw Reynolds with any serious time on the field was the trial, he was very loose...playing his own game.
I have my doubts about what he can provide for us...hope to be proven wrong...win the ruck and we can judge

And his cardio is way off.
Wouldn't make it through a half for mine.
Agree - hasnt played much footy for a long time.
Yep,

Ballin 2.0
Knew he had bad hammys and is pushing 30... Signed him anyway.

Im desperate to be wrong about this guy.

Off the field he seems to be awesome in terms of attitude and work ethic....

If he is played at 6 I think he will make a BIG difference.

I'm worried about him playing 30 at hooker.

We need his energy out wide...in one on ones in attack.
I think that's one of my points - yeah Reynolds was blowing in his first game, but he was defending like a lunatic at hooker. Different proposal having him play and defend at #6.

I suppose the point I was making originally is Reynolds was bought to be the starting #6, he was the Dogs long-term #6 and also played Origin there.

Unlike Benji who was almost on the scrap-heap when we bought him, only a glimmer of some good value from his Broncos finals campaign, and yet as a backup halves option he's proven quite good, even with the recent losses in consideration. Compare to the backup halves options at other clubs and how inconsistent some of those have been - Frawley, Douehi, Jack Bird, Brock Lamb, Moylan, Sam Williams etc.

Hopefully he can make a difference after about 3 or 4 games, I'll admit I'm skeptical as to how much and I'd rather he had a few games in Reggie's first but we'll see. I can't see him doing much if he plays 9, gotta be better than ET there though.

No doubting the guy is a good personality and all that.
Does really well on fox too.

I too hope he doesn't turn out to be a dud buy but we have to wait and see.

Can not see him having a impact for a month. Although with most games being stop start these days his fitness should not be a big issue as it would have been in the past. My main concern is we lack any real attack, speed, and power and I just dont see him changing that

would rather he came back in ISP and played 2-3 games, think he will get caught out in defense as he tires.

He doesn't have to be a game changer, all he has to do is direct the game better than Benji and we're in an infinitely better position. Hold the pill, kick to the corners, limit 7 tackle kicks, no loose passes and commit in defence.

I can see him making a difference, just not sure it will be positive.

As a dummy half, his service is slow and he does not run much.
In the halves his kicking game is poor and he lacks creativity, which means the dogs will be able to focus more pressure on Brooks.

The positives are that he will add enthusiasm which should improve our line speed.
He is less likely to over call Brooks or look for miracle plays

Reynolds creates points when he is fit. Good speed and great at reading numbers. He is no good at hooker running 5/8 is his only position. I believe he can be our most important player by the end of the year.

Got to hand it to Reynolds been training with both the NRL sqaud and the ISP team to increase his fitness. ..

Now we just need Ronnie to remember to pack the magic fairy dust.....

Yeah that's my concern about him. I think returning against his former club, which he loved so much and didn't want to leave, is a big mistake. If he'd been playing for most of the season then fine, but he's not match fit and has had no time to to learn combinations and fit into our team structure on the field - it will still all be new to him in many ways.

Against the Bulldogs, I reckon he will try too hard and as you say, if he tires the temptation to stick the leg out for a trip might be too much. I'd hate to see him end up looking like a goose in front of his former teammates and fans. I was really hoping he would've already been an integral part of our team before this game.

That is my take on him too, not a 9 but a running 6, good support play, I think to get value out of him, Benji has to play 9 or play ISP.

Eventually bloke has had terrible luck two unrelated injuries and played for 20 minutes.
