Corey Thompson will shift back to fullback, Pita Godinat has been dropped and Alex Twal will come into the starting side for the injured Russell Packer.

While he has yet to wear the black, white and orange in the NRL, Reynolds has already made an impression on his teammates.

“He’s a great bloke to have around the joint,” said Wes Naiqama.

“He’s played a lot of games, played in a grand final and heaps of semis football, so he brings a lot of experience.

“He’s always full of energy, Joshy. He’s great to have for the team morale, he brings everyone closer. He’s been really supportive even though he wasn’t playing. He flew with us to Melbourne, he’s always there on game days trying to help out and just be around the team.”

Tigers forward Josh Aloia added: “Off the field, (Reynolds is) one of the most lovely people you’d love to meet, kind and genuine.

“On the field, super competitive, enthusiastic. Great leadership qualities. He’s a great person.”

Reynolds is the highest-profile of the Tigers 10 pre-season signings but it remains to be seen how he, Marshall and Brooks will rotate through the spine when all are match fit.

“Quality player coming back, any team would be excited to bring Grubsy back,” said teammate Michael Chee Kam.

“From day one, his talk and his energy, whenever he is around the boys he lifts everyone up and is positive. He is one of the great blokes too.”
