We dissect the performance of the players that lifted the Rabbitohs to become champions of the 2014 NRL Telstra Premiership. Today, we look at halfback, Adam Reynolds.
Since making his debut in round one of the 2012 season, Adam Reynolds has cemented his place in the number seven jumper, and in 2014, the Souths Junior took his game to new heights with a Premiership win.
Pin-point general play kicking coupled with a cool head and sound judgment made the 2013 NRL All Star a vital cog in the Rabbitohs machine. When it came to the side’s all important halves combination, Reynolds was a constant feature in 2014 – pairing with Dylan Walker and John Sutton early on in the year, before the return of Luke Keary from injury saw the two forge what would ultimately become a premiership-winning formula.
Reynolds led the red and greens around the park in 26 matches during 2014 – missing just one match owing to suspension.When it comes to points, Reynolds managed to write his own bit of NRL history. now holding the record for the most consecutive NRL games in which a player has scored points.
Reynolds’ record is 76 consecutive matches, with the run stretching between round one 2012 against the Roosters (Home) to round 25, 2014 against the Bulldogs (Away). The little halfback achieved the record in round 17 against the Gold Coast Titans at ANZ Stadium, eclipsing previous record-holder Jason Taylor with 68 consecutive matches.
Reynolds also broke through the 600 career-points mark in round 25 against the Bulldogs, and broke through the 200 goals mark in round one against the Roosters.
