The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs will welcome back Josh Reynolds for his final match for the club, when the Bulldogs take on St George on Sunday at ANZ Stadium (4pm).
Reynolds, has missed the last two matches with a calf injury picked up in the game against Souths, but returns for a final time for the club that has always embraced him as one of their favourite sons.

- 197 Club Games
- 137 NRL Games
- 40 tries
- 4 Origin Matches, 2 City Origin Matches
It will also be the final match for the Bulldogs for Sam Kasiano. The big forward, who is moving to the Melbourne Storm next season, has been a popular member of the team and someone who has proven to be one of the most skilful 'big men' in the game.
Kasiano's record is:
- 171 Club Games
- 139 NRL Games
- 15 tries
- 6 Tests NZ / 4 Tests Samoa, 2012 Dally M Prop of the Year.
