South Sydney skipper Adam Reynolds has shown the club what they can miss, as he inspired the Rabbitohs to a comfortable 35-6 victory over the Broncos at ANZ Stadium.
Reynolds’ contract stalemate with South Sydney threatens to see fullback march towards rival team, but watching it on Thursday you’d be hard pressed to feel any trouble in the ranks.
The playmaker ended his night with a try and a sack of assists, but maybe it was his solo effort when he threw the very first two-point basket behind the 40 who had pandemonium fans. .
“It was good, I said to Cooky, ‘It doesn’t matter where we are, give me the ball,’” Reynolds told Nine.
“These are things that we are working on in training. It’s a little tactic that we use and I’m glad we did it.”
James Bracey of Nine added, “We saw the story here tonight.”
Latrell Mitchell capitalized on the spoils of his thriving fullback career, making a few tries in his name. While Benji Marshall found himself in front for his first four points for South Sydney.
