    The fact that he's performing while most of our games the last few weeks are season defining I think says enough.

    All you panthers fans willing to let Cleary play now that the NSW clean out has begun?

    Yes. He appears far too composed for it to rattle him. He has a history of stepping up while maintaining a certain level of performance.

    You're going to regret that comment.

    Not as much as you're going to miss Pearce.

    He might not be going anywhere yet.

    Never underestimate the stupidity of the NSW hierarchy. They will find a way to justify his selection. I'd consider Boyd Cordner on more shaky ground than Pearce.

    Am I saying that because I believe Pearce deserves to be there? Hardly. I just have an unshakeable faith in idiotic decision makers in Blues high places.

    I'll never underestimate their stupidity.

    But someday pearce's origin career will be over. And I'm sure you and a lot of other qlders will mark the day with a quiet tear.

    Pearce is probably going to get a statue erected outside of Suncorp in recognition of services rendered.

    Mitch just keeps grinning and smiling through it all. I probably wouldn't leave the house if I was him.

    Well the April 2012 'book under the bed' predictions sure turned out to be as dependable as a politician's promise. What else does the book under the bed predict? A NSW win in 2018?

    Honestly as a Roosters fan I think there are at least 4 better options than Pearce out there right now.

    In no particular order:

    - Chad Townsend (If they pick Maloney next year you've got Townsend who is solid and wouldn't let anyone down)

    - Matt Moylan (Is now playing in the halves week after week. Did play a game with Maloney last year and won)

    - Mitchell Moses (Has played well for Parramatta all year)

    - Nathan Cleary (Might be too young but if he's consistently playing well next year then he definitely needs a look)

    Yet: despite all that, watch how Pearce manages to be the man for the job in 2018

    There's also other guys coming through that look really promising.

    Clint Gutherson - would have been close to winning the Daly M had it not been for the injury.

    Brock Lamb - he's been brilliant in a shit knights team.

    Connor Watson - why tf did the Roosters let this guy go?

    Carried Parramatta in 2016 and much of 2017. Got a touch of Elvis about him too.

    There was a reason he was regarded as a better fullback than Munster or Holmes through the junior grades.

    They should have f**ked off one of the halves before letting him go.

    Agree totally.

    In fact one more series from him & I'd say they should remove Wally's statue and put Pearceoff up in bronze. Or maybe even gold.


    Just how f**king stupid are the bloos selectors?

    Lol yeah let's f**k off the best 5/8 in the NRL this year in Luke Keary.

    Or maybe our organising halfback. That way we can have two off the cuff attacking 5/8s in our team with no direction.

    Brilliant.
