I’m going out on a limb here and say we should never have signed Josh Reynolds (thanks Ivan), especially on the marquee salary and the term (4 years).
I mean full credit to Josh for his unrivaled passion for the game and his team, but that wears thin if not backed up by performances. Yeah I know he’s only played a handful of matches for us, and I’m sure he will improve, but he really offers very little above his unbound enthusiasm. Yesterday I saw his defence and tackling technique which consists of jumping on players to tackle them; common Josh this is not U9’s; I also watched him throw wobbly, inaccurate passes to his team mates, passes that are momentum killers not the starters to an attacking raid. Sadly, Benji is not much better, when will he learn not to kick into the feet of other players??!!!.
I’m sure for $750k p.a. we could have recruited a much better 5/8 than Reynolds….now we are stuck with him for 3 more years…sigh…
I really hope he makes me eat my words, but I doubt it very much…enthusiasm needs to be matched with some ability and as a marquee player, in a key position Josh does doesn’t have the ability required or we desperately need… feel sorry for Brooks!
