    Take off the Knights goggles. He has been average or below each and every time he’s played for NSW.

    His mates in the media have actually tried to defend his poor performances.

    I think Pearce has probably always been a 6.5/10 player at Origin with the odd real good game (Game I 2017). It's the fact in the key moments of the close games he hasn't been able to come up with the big play. The 2017 series was the one where he really should have won, but the entire side went to sleep.

    As for Dan I'm surprised he got picked I thought they'd look elsewhere TBH but good on him, looking at our bench it's clear Freddy wants mobile defenders so I think Dan will play 20-30 minutes tops, probably in there to damage some canetoads in the first quarter of the match.

    Great news for Knights Pearce is out of Game II, now he'll definitely play against the Broncos and is very unlikely to get picked for Game III so he'll be there for the Warriors game where we might be missing Dsaf, Klem, KP & Glasby !!!!

    Having Pearce there for the Warriors game lets us keep our shape, if he were out we'd likely have to play Edrick at fullback with Lino & Mann in the halves

    So never played terrible, just wasnt able to put the nail in the coffin against the best team in history.

    I expect nothing less of fans that use to bag the guy to still bag him.

    So, how are the contract negotiations with Dan going?
    I suspect the numbers are rising pretty quickly, and two good origin games will add 200k a year for the big guy.

    He played terrible a number several times for NSW. The fact someone has sighted Game 1 2017 as his strongest performance is telling considering he got knocked out early in the 2nd half and then NSW kicked on and won.

    I love the bloke for what he’s done for our club and the passion he’s played with but he’s been a total failure at Origin level.

    I hate Paul Kent. He’s been one of the blokes trying to make out that Pearce hasn’t been an Origin flop.
