Reynolds wins NRL Judiciary gamble to return for Origin II

NSW debutant five-eighth Josh Reynolds has rolled the dice and won.

The Bulldogs play-maker faced the NRL Judiciary last night, seeking a downgrade for a dangerous throw on Maroons winger Brent Tate during Wednesday night’s Origin opener.

Fox Sports reports, Reynolds was successful and will be free to play State of Origin II.


He pleaded guilty but sought to have a grade two dangerous throw charge downgraded to grade one and will be able to return for Canterbury in Round 13 next week.

Had Reynolds failed in his bid for a downgrade, he would have missed three games.
