    It will be interesting to see what impact, if any, this latest failure has on Pearces club form.

    Kimmorley admitted he was shot after the debacle in 2005 and it sunk the Sharks season.

    If Pearce had any brains he would be shot too; but I think he is too dumb to carry that weight.

    I think his actions at the end blaming fifita for dropping a shocking pass tells you as much as you need to know about how much personal blame he will shoulder!

    Interesting comments considering the 5 year plan worked minus a good coach and we produced Cleary.

    Here's the funny thing. Pearce is probably in the form of his life in club football. Adam Reynolds is having a poor year by his standard. Yet, compare their stats for NRL 2017 (according to Fox Sports):

    Pearce:
    14 games, 6 tries, 12 try assists, 7 linebreaks, 27 tackle busts, 11 linebreak assists, 8 forced dropouts, 39 avg run metres, 21.1 avg tackles, 2.2 avg missed

    Reynolds:
    14 games, 1 try, 12 try assists, 1 linebreak, 23 tackle busts, 8 linebreak assists, 16 forced dropouts, 35 avg run metres, 18.1 avg tackles, 2.6 avg missed

    Other than Pearce's far superior running game (which seems to get shelved in SOO anyway), the rest is pretty much the same. I think this shows Adam is worthy of another shot at NSW halfback, as long as the five-eighth is someone who will run/take on the line, and let Adam do the kicking/organising.

    f**k me!

    yet another deluded gomer.

    mccrones is surely worth giving a shot at origin.

    he's been pretty good so far this year.

    It's a shame that the legend Pearce was let down by poor service from the dummy half, inept forwards who were dominated and a backline that was simply out played.

    Next year I hope that the team selected to compliment Pearce will actually do their jobs so that he's able to shine.

    It will be interesting to see how he goes at the RL world cup when he's got some decent players around him.

    If Meninga brings him along it should only be to carry the bags...

    Pearce has never once been critical of his own origin "performance".

    Only way Piss is going to the World Cup is if dad slips him some free tickets.

    I was waiting for this... most Roosters fans have turned on Pearce but rain or shine he can always count on BHP for love and support.

    Cleary looked good last night. Keep that up and he could overtake Pearcey

    If he was dunking the tea bag he could see just fine.

    The dunkee is the issue.

    They likely swap it around because they are considerate lovers.

    Indeed. SSS is the tea bag dunkee hence his vision would be impaired.
