South Sydney Rabbitohs 2022

Post by greeneyed »

Squad Game: Rabbitohs 2022 roster changes and best 17

The departure of captain and halfback Adam Reynolds will leave a gaping hole for new coach Jason Demetriou while Origin star Dane Gagai's experience and finishing skills will be sorely missed in the backline.

Possible best 17
1. Latrell Mitchell, 2. Alex Johnston, 3. Campbell Graham, 4. Isaiah Tass, 5. Jaxson Paulo, 6. Cody Walker, 7. Blake Taaffe, 8. Tom Burgess, 9. Damien Cook, 10. Tevita Tatola, 11. Jacob Host, 12. Keaon Koloamatangi, 13. Cameron Murray, 14. Jai Arrow, 15. Mark Nicholls, 16. Liam Knight, 17. Siliva Havili/Peter Mamouzelos

Su'a and Gagai are big losses for them. As is Bennett. He was always able to get a 'no-name' forward pack playing consistently to their ceiling. Will be an interesting season for them.

Whilst they may miss them in the short term you can understand why they didn’t keep them. Gagai isn’t getting any younger and wanted a payday in what is fast becoming the least important position on the field. They have some youngsters with plenty of talent coming through who will do an adequate job.

Su’a they got on the cheap after he didn’t live up to expectations at the Broncos. Bennet appeared to get the best out of him at times but even he struggled with consistency. His price would have gone through the roof but I’m not sure you get a good return on the investment.

Tough decisions but I believe the right ones unlike our club with Croker and Whitehead.

Don’t forget Reynolds.

Oh yeah, he's gone to the **** Broncos so he's already dead to me.

He will be a big loss. He isn't a creative half, moreso a good game manager and very good kicker. Hard to replace that skillset.

Reynolds isn’t a top tier half of a Cronk or Thurston, but he’s certainly in that bracket of extremely influential half at the NRL level.

What Reynolds provided for the Bunnies was control and direction. Allowed Walker to play with freedom. How they go without him is the big query.

When we were looking for a half I was dreaming about getting AReynolds.

He’s exactly what we need.

I’ll back the Fog to death but hey there was Reyno available and I believe he didn’t even cross the radar.
