How did Reynolds Play today?



  • Did anyone see the game and can give update on him? Also I see Packer didn’t play and asking if anyones know update on him?
    Cheers



  • @hsvjones he showed his class but late in the game was put on report for a lifting tackle. The attack was better running off him



  • @CarltonDry how about the rest of the players?



  • @Madge they all played very well. Madden was ordinary in the 1st half but played better in the 2nd. The forwards had a real go which allowed the spine to cause havoc. The only reason the Knights were kept in the game was the ref giving the home side b2b penalties for off side, even the locals were laughing. Saifiti was strong for them
    As for standouts in an overall good team performance
    Reynolds
    Liddle
    Smith
    McQueen
    Siolo
    Rochow
    Jennings had a bit of a dig this game but still looks like he destroyed the canteen before the game and Talau will be a beast next year



  • Reynolds contract situation could have been handled better: Mbye

    Wests Tigers captain Moses Mbye has questioned the timing of the club’s decision to allow luckless playmaker Josh Reynolds the option of looking elsewhere following the June 30 deadline.

    Reynolds’ long-term future at the club is uncertain after Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire confirmed he had given the former Canterbury five-eighth permission to begin talks with rival clubs despite a further two years remaining on his current deal.
    Mbye’s own future was at the forefront of a salary cap storm midway through the 2018 season before his exit from the Bulldogs, and he told a media session on Monday he felt Reynolds could’ve been given the option to assess his short-term future earlier this year. “He’s been very limited to display what he can do,” Mbye said. "I really felt sorry for him, to be honest. The situation probably wasn’t handled as good as it could’ve been but at the end of the day it’s such a tough industry and that’s the drama of having the salary cap. "Probably just the timing of it in terms of the June 30 cut-off date and things like that, it wasn’t too convenient for him. I wish it got handled a bit better.

    "But in saying that, that’s more me thinking about a friend rather than the club, footy is a game we’re forever in debt too but sometimes it’s hard to take the emotion out of it when it’s such a close friend. “Everyone has been supportive of him and he’s a strong-minded person.”

    Mbye said Reynolds still had plenty to offer a NRL club despite a string of injuries since joining the Wests Tigers. The 30-year-old has managed just nine NRL appearances games in 18 months since departing the Bulldogs in 2017. “He’s got his body right and played on the weekend and from all reports did well,” Mbye said. "He’s definitely got something to offer but this time of the year is very tough for clubs because of salary cap and things like that. “I’d love to see him fight his way back into the Tigers side but I just want him playing footy. He’s a selfless bloke, the reason he gets this support is because he’d be doing the exact same thing for you.”

    Meanwhile, Mbye insists he’s relishing a new-found love for the game after making a switch to the centres in June. “It’s been really enjoyable, I’ve probably played some more consistent footy over the last few weeks,” Mbye said. "I’ve been that utility guy for such a long time now, chopping and changing, and it’s helped my footy. You learn the game from different views. “We just weren’t getting the results when I was at fullback here. We tinkered with a few things and are still a bit clunky but I think we’ve found a brand that suits out side.”

    He probably feels Grub deserves a shot at 6 in our team, as do I



  • Flipping hell! Robbie Farah, the king of inappropriate comments is walking out the door and our current captain says this. WHAT PART OF ‘KEEP IT IN HOUSE’ DONT THESE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND?
    I’ll say it another way - don’t air your dirty laundry
    Or this: don’t throw your club under the bus
    Or maybe: don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
    What about: don’t crap in your own nest.
    Far out Mbye - just shut it! We don’t need another basket case season.

    Bye Bye Mbye. He wasn’t moved to centres as our captain and highest paid player for nothing.

    I’m great!
    Just don’t like players commenting publicly about in house processes. Makes the organisation look fractured and give the press ammunition to spread gossip. Not good practice and coming from the mouth of the club captain, quite poor.



  • Reynolds should be given a chance, asap I we are out of the semi race , we know what Benji will give in 2020 but would love to see Josh put a few games together especially if he is staying in 2020 as per his contract



  • I only saw the highlights but Reynolds seemed to be involved in a few plays that led to tries.
    Liddle scored a good try but let in one with a weak attempt at tackle. Madden so far hasn’t been that impressive in any areas of the game - doesn’t look anything but average even at CC level.
    Defense in reserves is often very poor - it always looks like their attitude is “we’ll score more tries than them so let’s not waste too much energy on defending”!

    That would be the logical and smart move, so that won’t happen, or they will try him on the bench at hooker, which is just a waste of time
