    ​​​​In spite of this Pearce still had plenty of opportunity to make up for his mistake and be the match winning hero but failed with three field goal attempts (one off a four tackle set and one off a seven tackle set).


    Ponga almost won the match with two try assists and two goals for all the Knight's points but if anyone was single handedly responsible for the loss it was Pearce.

    R6 is amazing at being able to dig out scapegoats, instead of seeing that gigantic elephant in the room that everyone else can see. Pearce just doesn't have it in him to be composed in the big moments. I wasn't surprised that he found some form last year, when there was no expectation on the Knights. What we are seeing now from him when there is pressure to perform, given their roster is exactly what we got from him, apart from some rare moments for a decade.

      Single handedly is a bit of a hyperbole but his service in those last 10 minutes was horrendous. Some of the worst service you'll ever see out of dummy half.

      My bigger point was that this kid showed so much potential but doesn't seem to have progressed at all.

        An elephant in the room is something people aren't willing to talk about. Pearce has never been an elephant in the room, he's probably the most talked about halfback in the game.

        Pearce is another example of a player who has deteriorated at the Knights. Watson too, he looks so uncomfortable in that Knights team.

                Watson's problem is that he is a number 14 but he doesn't want to play there. He has no passing game at all so there is no other position for him.

                  Spot on! Thatís why he left the Roosters and went to the Knights. He wanted a starting spot, preferably at fullback which he considered his best position. I will never understand why guys donít appreciate what they have and always think they are better than what they are. If he had stayed with us he would have a premiership ring on his finger to show for it. Now heís fighting to keep a spot at the Knights.

                    I don't think you should be critical of someone for having ambition and dreams. It's not like he was being completely delusional or unreasonable.

                      It was the Ghost of Brett Finch for a long time.
                      Now only if the Chookpenne Ghost of Ron Jones could come back
                      Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe

                          Regarding Watson, and it could also include Pearce and any other quality player at the knights, I cannot see what good Brown has brought to the club with his style of coaching. He seems to be too much of a nice guy and maybe the slapping incident may have forced him to be more like that. I feel Watson, Pearce, SKD and even Klemmer are going backwards. I have said it before that I donít think heíll be at the knights in 2020.

                            If they lose their next couple he might not be there in May 2019!

                              I think they're a little too forgiving up Newcastle way.
