    Obviously Mullo has fallen off the radar, does anyone know how he's been tracking?

    More to the point, if he takes his time off to fix his hamstrings up and is keen to make a comeback (he could still have a couple of seasons left in him) would we take him?

    Think he done his dash unfortunately. Sucks to say as I had him always on a pedestal.

    Pearce is without a doubt the better half, and that's coming from a huge Mullen fan. Regardless of how good Mullen could of been, injury always halted his progress. Anytime he found form, he'd get injured within a couple of weeks. Saying that, when he had his good days, he was brilliant to watch.

    His mug getting clawed by Matt Cooper was my profile pic on here for years and I had to take it down because of the feels. Bloody disappointed but you win some, you lose some. We got Pearce for only 150k extra or thereabouts so in the end it turned out alright I guess.

    Mullen had all the skills but too much noise between the ears. As Billy said I would take Pearce for his game management/coolness under pressure

    Pearce is/was a better player than Mullo

    Yes they would have been a great halves pairing

    I disagree with Billy, if Mullo was fit we could have had both. For an experienced half Mullo was on a fair wage. 650K ( according to reports ) that’s fairly cheap.

    No chance Mullen returns to NRL or even ESL. Might come back to the REAL NRL if he wants to have another run, still has over two years to serve.

    I was only thinking the other day how great it would have been to have had both of them out on the paddock.
    I really don't think we ever got to see Mullo's full potential and that's a shame.

    It's was backended to be eventually like 850k, which is crazy money for his achievements.

    Mullens last play options were putrid! Couldn't get us a repeat set to save his hammy, Pearce is 10 x the player Mullen ever was
