I let Bulldogs down, says Josh Reynolds

A disappointed Josh Reynolds says he let his teammates down after a double dose of madness in the Bulldogs' 41-10 defeat to Brisbane on Friday night.

Reynolds eventually finished the game in the sin-bin for multiple indiscretions after he collected Brisbane’s Alex Glenn high. He had already been put on report for lashing out with his foot on Sam Thaiday while Thaiday laid on the ground costing his team possession while on the attack.

Then he tripped former teammate Ben Barba in an incident which could have seen him sent off.

All three indiscretions could see Reynolds spend an extended period on the sidelines. He has just returned from a three game suspension for a shoulder charge in Origin III.

Reynolds said he was disappointed.

“I might have the nickname “grub” but I don’t go out there to do those things,” Reynolds told the Bulldogs website.  “If anything I felt like I let the boys down. It’s hard, if the fans feel like I let them down then so be it.

“I don’t go out there to do it on purpose. Sometimes the way I play passion comes out the wrong way. I don’t mean to do that. I go out there to play my game.”

Any suspension to Reynolds would come at a cruel time to a Bulldogs side who are now battling to stay in finals contention. Their loss to Brisbane was their fourth in a row and they play an inform Eels side on Friday night with Sam Kasiano (ankle) and Dale Finucane (concussion) are in doubt.

“Very disappointed with the result of the game and what happened to me at the end of the game there,” Reynolds said.  “It was one of those things. I was involved in three incidents. These things happen in rugby league.

“I am sorry and I hope those two guys are OK and with the match review committee there is nothing I can do. I’ll get some advice from the club and go with that.”

    • Even worse - Daley will pick him for SOO next year.

      At least with Pearce and Maloney we looked capable of scoring points.

      This bloke can't attack or defend. Is there a coincidence between his return and the Bulldogs plummeting form ?.........you bet there is.

        • As one of the prime members of the NRL's grub squad, I suggest Josh Reynolds has spend a good deal of his life letting people down.

            • The biggest mistake the NRL made was not giving him a proper suspension during the Origin series. He got away with a lot then and thought it would continue. The club needs to take some responsibility for not reigning him earlier as its been going on for a few seasons.

              • This is wrong. Up until his Origin citation Reynolds had a clean record and got the benefit of having a clean record.

                There has to be some incentive for players to play and stay clean.

                That said, being placed on report (and clearly guilty) of several offences in \short period of time means that now is the appropriate time to throw the book at him. numerous incidents on report in one match and one season and having just come back from suspension I'd be surprised if he plays again this season and I doubt too many would argue.

                The big issue no one seems to be discussing is why wasn't Reynolds automatically marched for tripping?

            • He's a really difficult player to like, or admire.

              No, let me correct that. He's an impossible player to like or admire.

              Go the Rabbitohs!!
