Born on the northern beaches of Sydney, Jordy Reid joins the RaboDirect Rebels as part of the Club’s Extended Playing Squad.Jordy is a traditional openside flank, which many refer to as a hybrid version of George Smith and Phil Waugh. With his long dreaded hair, flair and aggression at the breakdown it’s hard to argue with the comparisons.Having the same grounding as Waugh at Shore in Sydney, Reid quickly became a standout, although he marched to the beat of a different drum. Upon completing his HSC, Reid spent 6 months abroad, before returning home to purely focus on his Rugby Union career with the Manly Marlins.After a season of dominating the colt competition, the transition was a swift one for Reid. He was noticed by Rebels and ARU scouts, and given the opportunity to travel south to Melbourne.Jordy resides in Melbourne with Manly Marlins teammate Cadeyrn Neville and is currently studying a Bachelor of Business, majoring in Sports Management. He previously worked in sports memorabilia, before joining the Club in October last year.
