The club’s decision — in the immediate term — appears to have been a disaster with the Rabbitohs on Monday signing former Warriors playmaker Kodi Nikorima as a playmaker and utility option while Ilias and Cody Walker struggle 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 seething after the club refused to budge on its one-year extension when Adam helped guide them to another grand final appearance, not to mention the fact he was living his childhood dream of playing for the South Sydney Rabbitohs,” he said. He wrote the club’s senior officials, including chief executive Blake Solly, should “hang their heads in shame” about how it unfolded.Last week The Daily Telegraph’s Phil Rothfield also told Fox League’s 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 he tore his former team to pieces in Round 9.“I am glad the week is over,” Reynolds said.“I am sick of seeing my head in the headlines and my name in the stories.“The fact we’re getting better as a team is more important than my own performance. I’m just excited about what we’ve been building.”The Broncos are building around him while the Bunnies are crumbling without him.
