    Was a bigger threat in just about every attacking aspect than Buhrer. Runs a good line, decent offload and obviously one of the fastest backrowers going around. Barnett was on par but missed a fair bit of footy (as did Buhrer).

    I thought he had good games scattered throughout the season, but overall was disappointing compared to what we saw at the back end of 2016. Looked like he was ready to have a breakout season. For me, his game wouldn't even be a huge concern if he didn't get concussed so many times. His form can get better with age, experience, better players, more or less weight. But the concussions are something that needs to be fixed quick smart or he'll be an even bigger scapegoat for the fans than now but more importantly his career might be over.

    We have so many forward options next year I wouldn't say any of them are 100% certain starters next year - especially since Dan and Barnett are both getting over surgery for most of the off season and in some doubt for round 1.

    They could have a leadership group which keeps everyone in line and self disciplines for Brown. I’ve heard that to be quite effective.

    Pearce, Buhrer, Lillyman and Guerra. That’s a lot of experience and leadership right there for the young guys to keep them in line and consistently doing the right things.

    Pearce he will be moving the side round the paddock and calling the shots. Anything else is just BS PR to keep the local home grown products happy.

    If Cogger continues to kill it during the preseason, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him captain the first grade side from NSW Cup lol

    You are a serial pest. Give it up. Go and choke on the supercoach.

    We have a couple of posters on here who’s only purpose is to hang sh*t on Billy. They contribute next to nothing and only wish to start arguments. It wasn’t particularly funny to begin with and now it’s just childish and boring.

    and the amusing thing is I've had them both on ignore for almost 2 years I think it is now, and with the new format, if you guys didn't mention them, I wouldn't know they are here, so it's only you guys who have to put up with them.

    Leadership guru to help Newcastle Knights rebuild, captaincy call


    David Riccio, The Daily Telegraph
    December 9, 2017 8:00pm



    THE leadership consultant who has engineered AFL premierships, netball gold medals and cricket dynasties has been recruited by Newcastle Knights to help guide their rebuild.

    And that includes deciding whether Mitchell Pearce or Jamie Buhrer captains the club next year.

    Ray McLean has worked with AFL clubs Sydney, Hawthorn and Adelaide to develop their premiership-winning leadership structures.

    The Australian cricket team, Australian netball team, NBL’s Sydney Kings and NRL clubs Melbourne Storm and St George Illawarra have also employed him.

    McLean is headed to the Knights this week.

    Over the next few months, with the tools and guidance of McLean’s leadership and management company, Leading Teams, Knights coach Nathan Brown will determine if Pearce is made captain.

    Brown is a big fan of Buhrer, who led the side this year, and the respected forward may retain the C beside his name next season.

    However, Pearce’s evolution as a player must include stepping up as a leader and a natural progression is the captaincy.

    A major lure for the star halfback to join the Knights was his ability to use his experience of 238 NRL games to lead many of the young Knights players.

    Recently, Pearce said: “I see myself at a point of my career where I am excited to take that leadership role.”

    Over the next two months, we’re about to learn if that includes the captaincy.

    I tried this but couldn't get it to let me read the articles. Is there a trick to it?

    Anyway, Pearce has to be captain, he has been brought here to lead the club, told he can make this side his own. He will be on the field for the 80 and responsible more than any other player with the direction the team is going. No brainer really.

    Kurriboy you can only access those articles á lá Telegraph if you are a paid up contributor and I refuse to give that so and so anything!

    After Uncle Rupe's $68 billion for 21st Century Fox he really does not need my miserable few dollars to read his crap!
