League Central

Joel Reddy (born 8 October 1985 in Sydney, New South Wales) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer for the South Sydney Rabbitohs.


Having played his junior football with the Yarrawarrah Tigers,[1] Reddy made his debut with Parramatta in 2005, scoring a try in his first game. In his first 2 seasons, he played 6 games, playing as a fullback.[2]

Reddy's usual position has been either on the wing or in the centres. With the departure of Brett Finch in the 2009 season, the Eels moved Reddy into the halves, playing him at Five-Eighth for one game but moved back into the centres when Daniel Mortimer moved to the five-eighth position.

Unveiled in The Daily Telegraph's exclusive fan poll on 23 September 2009, Reddy was chosen as the most under-rated player in the NRL.

In 2010 Reddy was selected to represent the City Origin side after an injury to Braith Anasta.

A torn pectoral muscle in round 10 saw Reddy miss the rest of the 2011 season.[3] Two months later he signed a 2-year contract with the Wests Tigers for the 2012 and 2013 seasons.[4] "It was pretty tough but when the Tigers came knocking I knew they were a really good club," Reddy said. "I enjoy my defence so I think that was one thing Tim was looking at when he bought me. I’m ready to do the hard work, the tough stuff and leave the fancy stuff to Benji."[5]

Despite scoring tries in his first two appearances in 2012, Reddy managed just 14 games for the season and was not chosen for first grade after round 20.


Reddy is the son of former International and Dragon forward Rod Reddy, and the brother of Central Coast Mariners footballer Liam Reddy. He is also the brother of Bianca Reddy who plays netball for the Adelaide Thunderbirds. He is married to South Sydney centre Bryson Goodwin's sister, Rearne and is the brother in law of the St. George Illawarra winger Bronx Goodwin
