I don't want him. His disrespect towards our club to me means we shouldn't even consider him.

I look at it this way Earl , if he disrespects our club at least he knows our faults

If by the 10000-1 chance he came at least he knows what he is in for

It'll be Manly though , Green to Warriors

Going to be a few years before we have a marquee player signing on the dotted line, said it a million times, the so called top players are lured to a club for more than money.

Woow, not saying that we should have a crack at Pearce .. but we must be spending way too much money on players, as look at the clubs who are saying they could fit him in their cap:

Manly - Cronulla - Melbourne - Brisbane - and the only one i can believe, Newcastle

Probably why when those windows of opportunities arrive for a premiership (2010-2012) that we grab them with both hands Ink or at least make a GF )

Never in the race mate, yet Newcastle always manage to be. Perhaps we should've won the wooden spoon 3 years running - seems to be an attractant to marquee players :roll:

I wouldn't have thought it necessary for WTs to bid? If we chased anybody young Adam Doueili would have been my pick based on his versatility and talent.

Newcastle have a lazy 1.5 million that they MUST use to make them fit in the cap regulations

That why every player coming up is being linked to them , someone will finally want them to "show me the money"

Knights may have $1.5m left in their cap, but aren't they still about 8 players short of the full compliment of 30 that they require?

Last thing they need is a Cronk-like player and 7 more reserve graders.

Pearce would be a waste of money...

In my opinion, Brooks has more potential upside than Pearce. Pearce has played his whole career surrounded by good, experienced players, he is never going to play any better than he played at the Roosters or in Origin... Just because a player is successful in a strong club, doesn't mean that success will be transferred to a battling club...

If Brooks is going to realise his potential, it will be in the next couple of years, he has played for about 4 full seasons now, has an experienced halves partner and a well balanced side at his disposal...
