Wests Tigers five-eigth Josh Reynolds says his new team’s style of play suits him better than his beloved Canterbury Bulldogs where former coach Des Hasler had the playmaker confined to one side of the field.
Speaking on Fox Sports, Reynolds admitted there had been some teething problems in the black, white and gold.
“At the Dogs Des used to split the halves and we would control one side each. At the Tigers Brooksy has pretty much taken the role of steering the ship around, and I’m sort of playing out the back of him and popping up wherever need be,” he said.
“Playing on both sides of the field has added a new dimension to my game. I’m having a lot of fun.
“Don’t get me wrong, there’s been a couple of hiccups – I’ve missed being somewhere I’m meant to be. But I’m still learning and we’re still learning as a team.
“I think the structure suits my game a bit more than (the Bulldogs) did.”
Wests Tigers first assignment is a showdown with Cooper Cronk and former favourite son James Tedesco.
