    From the Herald

    Newcastle coach Nathan Brown is poised to break from his own tradition and appoint Mitchell Pearce as sole captain of the Knights next season.

    It will be the first time since Kurt Gidley skippered the side in his final year at the club in 2015 that the Knights have gone into a season with just one player at the helm.

    Not really surprising in the least, but Pearce having the C next to his name doesn't mean other guys like Buhrer and such won't be leaders. People will still look up to the other senior players for leadership.

    Buhrer will C the reggies and be a great mentor to young guys coming through.

    The playmaker is always the leader.
    Everything else is nonsense.
    Joey was always the boss and calling the shots - even as a rookie teenager.
    Doesn't matter if you call Pearce the captain - everyone will know he is in charge anyway.

    No brainer.

    And given our other options for captain are likely going to be battling to be in first grade, or not on the field for the 80, Pearce is the logical choice.

    Imo this is a much better idea 1 captain and a player that's on the field for 80 min.

    Good idea, no point of gossiping anymore without any other legitimate sources or anything else coming to light

    Don’t wanna spout rumours but I’m pretty sure Mitchell Pearce is responsible for Josh and Austin’s rude behaviour on MKR. Minimum 6 week suspension imo.

    Good in him. Seems like he’s grown up a lot over the last year. I’ll be sure to have a few drinks for him today.

    Booze ban number 17 for junior.

    Just after his last article about giving up the drink he broke up with his missus and was getting into scuffles at weddings.
