Canterbury five-eight Josh Reynolds says he has no issue being the elder statesman in his new playmaking partnership with Moses Mbye. Former halfback Trent Hodkinson is now at Newcastle and Reynolds is ready to take on the extra pressure.
“I like that; you can’t stay young forever,” Reynolds told foxsports.com.au.
“You’ve got to be the one that stands up sometimes and takes the brunt or makes the big decision or when someone says stand up (you) stand up.
“I don’t mind that. It doesn’t really daunt me because I like doing things like that.”
Meanwhile Hodkinson says it’s still baby steps while he recovers from injury but is finally back on the paddock.
“I’ve been isolated on my own for a fair bit fitness wise,” Hodkinson told newcastleknights.com.au.
“It was good to get out among the boys and get into the mix of things in attack.”
