Josh Reynolds leaves Super League Hull

Hull have introduced the rapid departure of their marquee Australian signing Josh Reynolds.

The 33-year-old stand-off signed a two-year contract with the choice of a 3rd season when he joined Hull from Wests Tigers in December 2020 and is believed to have been the highest-paid participant within the membership’s historical past.

But his type has slumped this marketing campaign and Hull say they’ve agreed a mutual settlement for his launch.

A press release on Wednesday stated: “Hull FC can confirm that Josh Reynolds has left the club with immediate effect.

“Both events have mutually agreed that the Australian won’t be staying with the membership for the 2023 season.

“As a result of that agreement, the club has further agreed with the player that he can depart immediately to open up pathways for future talent in the squad.

“The membership wish to thank Josh for his efforts, while wishing him luck for the longer term.”

Reynolds, who also played for NSW in State of Origin and in the NRL for Canterbury Bulldogs, made 25 appearances in his 18 months with the Black and Whites, scoring seven tries.

Hull are thought to have lined up Castleford stand-off Jake Trueman as a replacement for 2023 and are also expected to part company with skipper and scrumhalf Luke Gale, whose contract runs out this year.

The departure of Reynolds leaves a hole in coach Brett Hodgson’s squad for Friday’s game at Warrington, with Ben McNamara still recovering from a back injury.

Hodgson has included Jacob Hookem, Aidan Burrell and Davy Litten in his preliminary 21-man squad for the journey to the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
