Blake Green has officially been released from Manly.

Hopefully:

They would only release a contracted player if they could sign a better player, that better player is Pearce, better players cost more money meaning less cap space to buy other players, Manly have less room in the cap to buy other players because of this, if Joel Thompson wants a release, then Manly would almost certainly be out of the race since they have little cap room, Tigers have the space in their salary cap to sign him, Wests Tigers officially announce the signing of Joel Thompson.

Wherever Pearce goes I hope he lands into a good team culture. I have no doubt his off-field issues were not helped by the Roosters culture.

Might even get him playing his best footy if they can sort his off-field problems.

He is off to Manly, with Green released as well.

Apparently the timing is just coincidental ;)

Pearce/ Cherry Evans - who runs the team? Both great players on their day. Will be interesting to see how they go together.

Can Robbo actually coach? I guess at the end of the day the record will say so many finals appearances and x amount of premierships, but the question of if he can really coach may always be a mystery.

Theres a lesson for rookie NRL coaches, don't start until you can get the Roosters or Broncos gig.Potter and Robbo both came back at the same time, one had infinite resources ( and still does) the other, well, lol, he came to us. The truth is the one that came to us is probably a better coach, just under resourced.Its a strange old world.
Robbo went into the final against the Cowboys with 2 backrowers in the centres & a winger on the bench who got 14 mins at the end of the game . How he has escaped scrutiny about that is amazing .
Possibly the worst coaching decision I've seen.
I raise you Lovett to centres on Whare.
That trumps everything!

Not only has he asked for a released, the Rorters has signed his released paper .. he is now free to negotiate with clubs .. Manly are odds on fav's, with Cronulla circling .. !!

I'm told it's not the done deal it might appear to be... Nothing is certain at this stage.

I’d have Pearce in a heartbeat. Gives us a quality half now with good depth as an alternative when needed.

We're one of the last clubs he would consider.

Not certain he will go to Manly. Apparently Sharks were a possibility, then Manly. It could still happen but nothing is certain .

I'd suggest we're long odds...

This whole scenario is just so bleeding obvious. I don't know why they pussyfoot around, playing games in the media and when Green gets released to go to the Warriors and Pearce signs with Manly everyone will be like 'oh wow, didn't know that was gonna happen!' - yeah right!
