After spending half of the opening part of the season on the side-lines through injury, Rabbitohs halfback Adam Reynolds is ready to tear in as his side prepares to take on Manly-Warringah at ANZ Stadium in Friday Night Football.
The Souths Junior was a late inclusion in the Rabbitohs’ starting side in Round 14 after being sidelined with a broken thumb, and with a bye following in Round 15, Reynolds is pleased about the condition of his body leading into this weekk's game.
“The body’s feeling good,” said Reynolds.
”It’s obviously been good to have a few days off there. The thumb is feeling good – I‘ve got the tick of the doctors and the physios.
“It’s going to be an exciting back-end of the year for me and I’m looking forward to just getting back out there and stringing a few games together.”
With the benefit of watching his team play from an outsiders perspective in recent weeks, Reynolds – a veteran of 86 games in the top grade thus far - says that he will benefit from the experience while also stressing that it will all come down to hard work at training.
“It’s pretty easy to spot things from the stands, but in saying that it’s all about transferring it out onto the paddock at training and trying to replicate that in games,” said Reynolds
“It starts on the training paddock. The boys are really good at training – we put in every session in trying to replicate games. It gives myself the best opportunity to get back in the swing of things."
