The truth behind Adam Reynolds’ exit from South Sydney has finally come to light with new details from behind the scenes.
Adam Reynolds’ true feelings for his former club were revealed after his dramatic exit from the Rabbitohs.
The midfielder masterfully controlled the game like his Brisbane Broncos beat South Sydney 32-12 Thursday night in his first game against his former team.
The 31-year-old was famously forced to drop out when the Rabbitohs refused to budget an offer to extend his one-year contract last year.
He said last week that he knew it was time to leave his boys’ club when he said the Rabbitohs attempted to find a second club to offer him a contract after another season with the Rabbitohs.
He left without a bad word about the club he grew up wanting to play for.
But now an overwhelming report has emerged as to how he really feels about how he was treated.

Radio personality Mark Levy said so nove.com.au Reynolds’ family is “privately seeing” how Reynolds was treated before he eventually agreed to a $ 2.4 million three-year deal with Brisbane.
The Rabbitohs promoted Lachlan Ilias to wear the no. 7 jumper with the belief that the rising star is the right man to lead the club for the long term.
The club’s decision – in the short term – appears to have been a disaster with the Rabbitohs on Monday hiring former Warriors director Kodi Nikorima as a point guard and utility option while Ilias and Cody Walker struggled to click.
Levy says Reynolds’ departure is “the biggest mistake in the club’s history”.
“I’m also a friend of the Reynolds family who are still privately dating things after the club declined to budget for its one-year extension when Adam helped guide them to another big final appearance, not to mention the fact that he was living his childhood dream of playing for South Sydney Rabbitohs, “he said.
He wrote that the club’s senior officials, including CEO Blake Solly, should “shut their heads in shame” at how it has unfolded.
Last week the Daily Telegraph Phil Rothfield also told Fox League NRL 360 the Rabbitohs had made a big mistake.
“It was completely disrespectful what they did to him,” he said.
“It was disrespectful to let him go.”
Reynolds, meanwhile, was nothing but class after tearing his former team apart in Round 9.
“I’m glad the week is over,” Reynolds said.
“I’m sick of seeing my head in the titles and my name in the stories.
“The fact that we are improving as a team is more important than my performance. I’m just excited about what we’re building. “
The Broncos are building around him while the Bunnies are collapsing without him.
