I imagine there's a great deal of schadenfraude being enjoyed by the old Wests fans here.

Oh well Pearce doesn't have to change his jersey colours, just the design.
Also doesn't have to repaint his dog kennel.

Newcastle fast becoming the place where all old Roosters go to die!! At least the Sharks didn't get Pearce as that would have made a mockery of the so called cap being in place to spread the talent.
YES!
I am just so glad a struggling team gets a chance at the 8. Sure it's not us but Newcastle has been kicked in the guys year in year out.

Hmm I wonder what Brock Lamb or Hodgkinson are doing. I expect Manly to push to sign one of them.

Manly missing out after shedding a player to accommodate him.

Just looked it up, nothing solid about Hodkinson signing anywhere, just rumours to have been looking in the ESL.
I would take Hodkinson off their hands! He and Reynolds were a great combo, could be good for us I reckon.

I agree but I do think, with the Pearce signing, Newcastle have bought better than us overall. I don't rate him at SOO level but I believe he's a very good first grade half and will lift Newcastle next year. If they click next year they'll be strong contenders for the top 8.
I think they could be a quality team who could really push for the 8. I'm not confident we will push for the 8. Next year is going to be interesting because there have been a lot of changes.

Not just Pearce now, but Ese Ese, Guerra and Moga are all quality players in their prime and Ponga & Watson are touted for big things. Not that 'potential' always manifests, as we well know, but regardless, I think they have definitely bought better than us.
And?

Even if that is correct, which is debeateble, why does that have to reflect on us?
It reflects on us in that, not only did have they picked up some quality players: but now have
strengthened their team even more with the signing of one of the best club halfbacks in the game. Before this, theymay have moved up a couple of rungs on the ladder next year, now with a top halfback ,they are a real possibility of at least getting close to the 8.
They certainly have a better half than we do, (at this time).
Every team that can genuinely have a crack at the 8 makes it harder for us to get there.
Simple arithmetic.
Remember. This crew have had the wood on us moretimes than not recently, without a decent halfback

Not with his "dickie" legs he wouldn't be good for us.

Their chances have certainly improved, but they have to make it work on the park, so do we for that matter.

Each season has its twist and turns. But not sure if we can say they or we have bought better.

True but I'm waiting for Brock Lamb to ask for a release to join Manly.

As far as I know we didn't go after Pearce but I do think Ivan is a pretty good judge of a footballer and comments that he made last season indicate that he rates Brooks pretty highly. For me that's enough to support his decision to go with Brooks and Reynolds in the halves in round 1. After a proper off season with Cleary, Reynolds and Marshall on his case I'm hoping to see Luke Brooks 2.0 take the field next year with a pretty fair pack in front of him.

At my ever advancing age, I shouldn't say this but I really wish it was round 1 2018 already!

Matty Johns revealed part of the conversation he had with Pearce when trying to convince the halfback to join Newcastle.

“I said to Pearcey when you win at the Roosters these days what do you feel? Do you feel elation or do you feel relief?” Johns told Triple M.

“He said to me I feel relief, and I said that’s not good. Relief is not a motivating factor, and that’s not good.

“I said to him it’s time for you now to start to enjoy your football. I said come to Newcastle, I know you’ll enjoy it there.”
