Mitchell Pearce has stood down as Knights captain following the scandal around his text messaging of a female club employee, effective immediately.

Pearce informed his teammates of the move after meeting with Newcastle hierarchy and coach Adam O'Brien, addressing the off-field incident that saw his future at the club called into question.


A replacement as skipper has not yet been determined, with a leadership shake-up already under consideration before Pearce dominated headlines over the Christmas period.

Pearce will front the media alongside O'Brien on Thursday to address the matter ahead of his return to pre-season training.

More to come

With any luck this derails their season which gets us one spot closer to the 8.

Sad to say but it’s becoming increasingly obvious that young Mitchell is a ‘lad’ and still fairly immature. He really needs to grow up.

Bit of a one trick pony, they had our measure but I can see them regressing this year.

How such an idiot can be raised from such a legend is baffling.

Abdo believes new Transfer System will be different in 2023.
Whilst he didn't elaborate on how the transfer window will work, he did say the new system was targeting the unacceptable situation of several players playing for a club knowing they wont be there the following year, ahla Lucy.
