Reynolds vows to make Blues return

Josh Reynolds has vowed to return to the New South Wales (11/8 to beat Queensland) side after being dropped from the State of Origin decider.

Reynolds was back on club duty on Sunday for the Canterbury Bulldogs and he played his part in their 39-0 win over the Melbourne Storm.

A foot injury to Paul Gallen means Reynolds misses out on the series decider as Blues coach Laurie Daley has opted to draft in an extra forward with Boyd Cordner taking his place on the bench as Daley looks to give the Blues the upper hand over Queensland (4/7 to beat NSW).

Reynolds failed to make it off the bench in the first game of the series and had a limited spell on the field in the second. The Bulldogs star admitted that the news was hard to take but he is adamant he will return stronger.

He said: “I’ll be honest, it killed me, I wanted to be out there with the boys. But things that happen like that make you stronger. But Loz wants me back in camp and I’ll go back and hang out with the boys tomorrow and still feel part of the team.

“It was tough news to take and no coach wants to do it. But he explained to me he needed someone to play the minutes for Gal and obviously I am a utility and he’s a front-rower so Boydie got the nod.”
