You realise that you just described 90% of pearce's career right? "Get to the 40 then put up a bomb pearce." One of pearce's worst aspects has been his inability to play what is in front of him, ESPECIALLY in origin. You make these comments about Cleary, yet you are Pearce's biggest fan ... lolz.@Oz Sport Mad wrote:
Absolute gun and refreshing to see a young half with the testicular fortitude to call the shots and play what's in front of him....rather than just rolling out set plays based on what they've practiced at training.
About the only risk I can see is that every boofhead keeps calling him the next NSW half.....
What is the risk in saying - IF he continues to develop the way he has been, he will play for NSW ?? Its the truth.
I think he has really benefited from not having an actual 6 outside him so far in his career too, he has been more in control than most rookie halves because he generally gets the ball when he calls for it.
Its odd that he wasnt really pumped up that much before coming into first grade - considering all the sucking off gus does of penrith players.
