Maguire: Origin Reps Back in Red & Green
Rabbitohs Head Coach, Michael Maguire, says that both of the Club’s State of Origin representatives, Adam Reynolds and Greg Inglis, are looking forward to getting back into their Club colours this weekend in Perth against the Titans.
The two players will combine in the halves this week after being named by Maguire on Tuesday to take on the Titans.
“He was really excited to get back to his players,” said Maguire in reference to Reynolds.
“One thing about Adam and Greg – they understand that they get these opportunities of playing at Origin due to the players they’ve got around them at Club level, so they’re looking forward to getting back in and seeing the boys.”
Maguire has been particularly impressed by Reynolds’ enthusiasm to get back into Rabbitohs camp ahead of this weekend’s game, noting that the Souths Junior will have learnt much from the Origin experience.
“He was really excited actually. To listen to him talk and the experience that he’s got from that Origin, I think it’s definitely going to grow him as a player.
“He was obviously disappointed that they weren’t able to achieve the win, but I think he’s going to come back a much better player from that experience, and to see him go out in the arena, I thought he fit in really well.
“He’s a quality player and obviously the kicking off the back of any set is a major key. I thought he was composed.”
