Some reports suggesting even closer to $1.2m a year. Incredible. And they would say that Cronk is on less (although I bet he gets more).

I did read that they may have bonuses for Pearce at Knights if he helps them win the GF. If he can do that, I reckon they should rename the city after him.

Have to laugh at Manly - released Green on the expectation they would get Pearce. Now they only have DCE in the halves.

Brock Lamb may ask for a release so Manly could look at him as an option.

It'll be interesting how Newcastle go next year. They look to have a decent squad with a lot more quality players than what we have. I still think we may go better than them because I think our side will hopefully be tough and have plenty of depth.

Cooper Cronk really screwed us over. If he hadn't been so secretive and announced he was playing on and signed with the Roosters back in April, then we could have had a red hot crack at Pearce. Really poorly timed for us.

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.

Raiders, Titans, Warriors, Bulldogs, Sharks, Dragons, Panthers, Rabbitohs.

I don't see the above teams performing consistently throughout the whole year. We just need a little bit of luck and to perform every week.

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.

Great recruiting by Newcastle. They have certainly strengthened their squad and real smart to go after the Roosters. Its going to be interesting.

Thanks, and yes the genetics are pretty good for him. Used to watch Trevor at Lidcombe Oval. He was a very talented player but possibly a bit of a lair and could have done better with more dedication but he was very loyal to the Magpies and I rate him highly for that. John was an honest toiler.
