    Would laugh if the ARU actually bit. They have enough issues without adding an over priced Latrell to the equation.

    I hope he signs for my local team because it seems the NRL has lost its appetite for overpaid centres.

    The Roosters would have kept Pearce if he'd been prepared to change position for a couple of years.

    i have a gut feeling NQ is going to get him. Not sure how I feel about it if it eventuates, he seems like a complete pain in the ass off the field and some of his ’antics’ on the field are rubbish.

    Tahu said that back in May. I also think he is right. I think Latrell would tear up in Rugby at fullback or centre, it would be made for him. low workrate, weak defences.

    TBF, the Tahu column was back in May (before he bombed in Origin?) Be interesting to see what Timtah thinks now.

    who knows wtf LM is thinking letting these clowns managing his contract. Maybe they're literally trying to deliver 1 mil-a-season promise at all cost

    Warriors have loads of money. We should make an offer. Surely LM could be the next guy to reject us.

    haha.. You really think the Roosters thought Pearce would hang around? After telling him his new position would be bench hooker lol.. and that in a couple years time when he is 30 years old and learns from Cronk how to play halfback, he might be able to have the position back.

    The Roosters put Pearce in a position where his only realistic option was to leave, but they didn't want to straight out ask him to leave so they would have less of a bargaining position with other clubs hoping they would chip in to take him. They played the situation well.

    Another one goes to Union. So that’s Tepai Morea, Kata, Chambers and maybe Mitchell. Yet we again take nobody from super rugby or wallabies.

    That's because the Australian Union players are shit.

    Tepai Moeroa will probably get a gig for the Wallabies lol

    Best prop in the game on 500k. You guys truly are the benchmark of cap management :)

    No way they would have shifted Keary. None.

    Exactly.

    And there was no freaking chance of moving Keary to accommodate Pearce.

    Did you watch the spuds that we have playing union during the WC? I tried for half a game and could not force myself to do it again.

    The skill level in that code in this country has fallen to an epic low.

    It is appalling to watch. Just bloody awful.
