    Drums beating louder for fan favourite

    Josh Reynolds is one of the most loved players in the game, but his future at Wests Tigers could be in jeopardy. The talk is growing louder that the Tigers would let him go if there is a suitable offer from another club.

    Reynolds has been hampered by injury since he arrived at the Tigers and has had to deal with tragedy in his personal life in recent times.

    On the face of it, the Tigers have not got value for money. Reynolds joined the club last season on a four-year deal worth about $750,000 a year after he was forced out of the Bulldogs, but has only run out nine times for the joint venture.

    This news would not be a surprise to Reynolds, who is said to be nervous about his place at the club. The key would be finding another team to take him on.

    Player agents are talking about Reynolds being traded out of the Tigers, but when I spoke to his manager, George Mimis, he said he had not heard from the club.

    The rumour has been around for the past few weeks, but is certainly gathering steam.

    ....

    I'd take him back if Tigers cop $500k a year of his salary.

    I'd take him back for the remainder of the season only forking out like 150k give him another farewell and then fuck him off again... at this point I'd try anything to dodge that fucking spoon. Leave him on the bench in 14. Really though, the boy should get his manager to call Wigan Warriors and ask for a gig, if Austin can carve up over their then Josh will have success also.

    Poor Josh. Couldn't have happened to a nice bloke. At least he's getting paid either way. That offer from the Tigers was always insane.

    Love it when ex bulldog players struggle. Let's get him back to play hooker at a fraction of his salary.

    I’d love to see him back, tbh. Doubtful we could afford it even if the tigers pay some of his freight, though.

    The only Bulldog who plays with his heart on his sleeve. The rest of this current mob could at least learn from that.

    Offers something that we're definitely missing since he left..... Love for the Jersey. Most of the 17 don't hurt when they lose games.

    for say 150 for the balance of 19 and 350 for 20 with tigers paying the difference I think he would add a bit to this group.

    So, we just keep passing him back and forth with the Tigers and see how much percentage of his salary the other has to pay?

    If this some kind of Salary kicking duel?

    The only negative discussion points about having Reynolds back is his health and his asking price.
    Having him back is a no brainer.

    Tigers would need to cough up 40-50% of his salary.

    No brainer in bringing him back in

    He was always a true bulldog, I mean it would be nice to have his passion back, and if he came back, he would play his absolute best to pay back the opportunity given. I’d say he will be home sick and missing his beloved bulldogs..!!

    He would love being back home, I mean if it was a good deal an it happens it’s algood.

    I could see him coming back.

    Anything more than $300k is over-priced though, and even that's pushing it.

    Knowing our board, we'll sign him to a million dollar a year five year deal. Or just pick up his full contract from the tigers
