Round 26 KIA Play of the Week

Josh Reynolds 75m effort is this week's KIA play of the week.

The Bulldogs had two chances in the space of three minutes to get back in the contest but were twice denied with Josh Morris failing to collect an Mbye grubber, before his centre partner Kerrod Holland bounced the ball as he attempted to ground a kick on the other side of the field. 

It would be third time lucky as the blue and whites pounced to finally score off a kick; albeit from the boot of South Sydney as Reynolds blocked a kick by John Sutton and regathered the ball to sprint 75 metres and score despite the best efforts of Damien Cook.

Following his amazing effort, Channel nine commentator Ray Warren praised the efforts from the local junior.

“He’s always contesting the game. He’s always somewhere near the football,” Warren said.

“A number of times he has come up with the effort you have just seen and it happens far too often.

“It only happens I guess, for people that keep persisting and playing the game for its full 80 minutes.”

Meanwhile, Peter Sterling added that when the Bulldogs need someone to lift them, they turn to Reynolds.

“If anybody is going to make it happen for Canterbury, it’s Josh Reynolds,” Sterling added.

“We’ve seen it countless times over the past seasons, but when they need a lift through energy, enthusiasm and desire, he’s going to provide it.

“He played at the ball deliberately and he made it happen.”
