-NEWS- Ikin to Broncos: sign Reynolds

Wayne Bennett's estranged son-in-law Ben Ikin has some free advice for the Brisbane Broncos. It involves trying to pair yet another halfback with Anthony Milford:

“The Broncos should absolutely sign Adam Reynolds. Reynolds is on the market and he might be keen to come to Brisbane and could potentially form a great halves combination with Anthony Milford. Given the state of the Broncos, they should be considering signing any quality player at the moment.”

Calm

“I like his calmness. I like the detail in his game, he is a first-class goalkicker and excellent general-play kicker. Reynolds hasn’t got as many brilliant moments in him as some of the other playmakers in the competition, but the gap between his best and worst performance is pretty small and he knows how to manage a team. He has played in a lot of big games at the Rabbitohs, he has won a comp, he has been in a stack of preliminary finals. I know it has been a criticism the last few years that he hasn’t been able to take them to the next level, but there is a whole lot of tools that Reynolds has got that would be very useful at the Broncos right now.”

Reynolds’ manager Steve Gillis says:

“Adam is open to all offers. Adam has made it clear he won’t be accepting a one-year term and if things don’t change I don’t expect him to be at Souths. That’s the bottom line. In a perfect world, Adam’s preference is to stay exactly where he is. He is the captain, he has won premierships there and has mates and family there, but if things don’t evolve from Souths’ end, he will have to step up the process with other suitors. Adam will investigations all options. I believe he has another three years in him. If he signed a three-year deal, he would be 34. Benji Marshall (fellow Souths playmaker) is 36 this year, so there’s no reason Adam can’t play on beyond another 12 months.”

Let me just tie this off with a conspiracy theory,” Ikin said.

“(Pitt) said the Broncos might be looking for a halfback, (Kent) said on Monday or Tuesday night that Wayne Bennett has started talks with the Brisbane Broncos so (Hooper) has put it all together.

“Wayne goes back to Queensland next year, potentially in a role at the Broncos and the South Sydney halfback might go with him.”

There would be absolutely no reason to keep Milf. Croft is on 400k from memory, so not bad for a back up half and Dearden is the long term option and could easily play 5/8 while developing as a playmaker. Give him 500k or there about and give Milfs money to a proven playmaker who can control a game, pass a ball and kick a footy. Milf can only do one of those things once a month. His time is up.

I’m souring on the idea to be honest. Too sus that South is only giving him 1 year. Very strange way to treat a one club legend and captain. This smells fishy.

Have Souths got any young halves on the way up?

I don't like this idea AT ALL. Reynolds is a good player who looks great bcos of the players around him, he doesn't make the players around him better. He is also 31 with an injury record, 3 years is not a good idea. I just get a feeling he would look a lot worse with a worse team around him...
