I’ve been a dumb footballer: Reynolds

Canterbury five-eighth Josh Reynolds admits he’s been a “dumb footballer”, and now needs to smarten up in the absence of cool halfback Trent Hodkinson.

Three suspensions and separate arm and knee injuries have limited the 26-year-old to just 15 games this NRL season.

And after his on-field antics cost him his beloved NSW Origin jumper earlier in the year, Reynolds feared his inability to stay on the park might also have lost him a spot in this week’s qualifying final against St George-Illawarra.

“For me, if Trent was still fit, him and Moses (Mbye) would definitely be the halves,” Reynolds said on Tuesday.

“And whether I was going to come off the bench, or even be in the side, was the question.”
