Reynolds cops three-week ban
New South Wales and Bulldogs five-eighth Josh Reynolds will miss three weeks for a shoulder change on Queensland winger Will Chambers having taken an early guilty plea to the Grade 2 charge.
Reynolds’ 33rd minute hit in his side’s 32-8 Game Three loss left Chambers dazed, and the winger left the field for a concussion test before returning to play out the remainder of the game.
Reynolds will miss the Bulldogs' coming clashes with the Storm, Tigers and Cowboys, but will be available for their blockbuster Round 21 match against Penrith at ANZ Stadium.
Reynolds was one of four players charged in the physical encounter. Queensland interchange forward and Rabbitohs back rower Ben Te’o will miss one game with or without an early plea for a Grade 1 dangerous contact charge arising from his 23rd minute hit that collected Blues halfback Trent Hodkinson around the head as he put a kick in.
Blues lock Greg Bird faces two games out for a dangerous throw on Titans teammate Nate Myles, while Myles can escape a ban with an early plea for his raised forearm – coincidentally on Bird.
