He was given a roadside drug test and failed.

He was then taken to Sutherland Police station for a secondary oral fluid test which has been sent to a laboratory for analysis.

The Daily Telegraph understands two tests were done - one returned a positive result and the other negative.

Reynolds is now awaiting the result of a laboratory test to confirm which was correct.

Reynolds’ manager was contacted by The Daily Telegraph but did not respond. An NRL spokesperson said in a statement: “The Wests Tigers advised the NRL Integrity Unit of the matter. The Integrity Unit are working with the club and NSW Police to determine the full details.”

The incident comes after a rough year for Reynolds mostly because of a public breakdown with his now ex-girlfriend Arabella Del Busso – who is alleged to have faked several pregnancies while they were together.

Police hauled him before the courts on a domestic violence charge related to Ms Del Busso but it was ultimately dropped.

Just one week ago she broke her silence on 60 Minutes with shock revelations about her deceptions.

If he’s tested positive for drugs, that has to be a grounds for termination of his contract. Negative press is a bad thing, but if he gets sacked for this it’s great news for our salary cap.

Good one Josh. Not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Damn j had him on my bench for energy

Caps off a rotten weekend for the club

Kick him out …wait …yeah …nah

Trying to get a gig at the Roosters or Sharks obviously

If guilty, he has no place in the game.

However

…he should be presumed innocent until proven otherwise.

1 positive, 1 negative, wait and see, but still driving with expired licence. Stupid!

Damn, expired licence and failed roadside drug test…

Maybe drug test will come back negative, if so, driving without a valid licence is stupid but not sackable.

For his sack, hope it’s a negative result.

He’s the gift that keeps giving.
