Is Josh Reynolds an Five-eighth to me he doesn't suit it lol?
idk guys , he doesn't seem to play like one, to me he is like a Jamie Buhrer (Lock) , just my thoughts idk what you guys think?
I would want to try Reynolds as a lock though.but I love how he plays his heart out

Cant defend so no chance in the forwards. Beginning of year and previous 2 years definitely worthy of team selection. Ever since origin has dropped his game considerably

Like I said in a different thread, when we're behind he tries too hard and overplays his hand, I would keep him at Five Eighth.

He is the nsw 5/8 in case you forgot. That 3week suspension killed any momentum he may have gained from the SOO.
He'll come good again if he's given free reign like
was at the start if the season

Cant defend. Rushes up way way too much.

Eastwood, Finnucane are excellent defenders, they should be our rotating locks

In many respects defending at 6 or 7 can be more challenging than in the forwards. Less tackling, of course; but more decisions to be made, more space around you, but less big men around you helping.

Look at the games where Ennis played halfback, for example.

Ennis is a renowned defender - when he is around the ruck. However, when he was playing halfback, he got caught out on numerous occasions.

I'm not saying Reynolds should, or shouldn't be at 5/8; but it's a conversation worth having.

Cant pass, can't run, cant kick, can't tackle... But he plays his little heart out..... I have said it a number of times, his passion blinds us from how below average he is. I would prefer mbye in the 6, he is a raw instinctive player.

Don't rate him. But he does play to his ability unlike some others.

Hooker or some bench utility.

6 isn't his game.

Not a five eights arsehole. Does not get his hands on the ball enough, Trent included and definitely can't kick for shit

I agree with u. Personally id prefer mbye at 6. Love reynolds but in all honesty isnt nsw or bulldogs best 5/8th.

Omg finally! other people are finally starting to see what i see in Reynolds. Mbye will be our long term 6 and i can't wait for him to push Reynolds out. Hodko also needs to step up and take control and get his hands on the ball as much as he can and not play second fiddle to anyone else.

How many games have you seen him play lock? How can you prefer him in a position you've never seen him play
