    I really hope the Roosters can convince Pearce to stay with them.

    Scared of Brennan.

    He is an absolute disgrace. Weak as ****. Besides his huge season and a few stand out origins he's been a flop overall. He won't even do a pre season whatever new club he turns up at.

    So very typical and some thought he should come here.

    And what a tragedy Uncle Benny is upset Bird won't fly for round one and attacks the Sharkies over his surgery. Another good miss, thanks Browny

    As long as Moylan shrugs off his poor attitude as of late I think the sharks are getting the better end of the arrangement. Without the captaincy role he never really wanted it should alleviate some of the pressure and result in an overall improvement in his efforts and performance.

    Maloney moving to his 6th club in the manner he's gone about it just to increase his take-home isn't a good reflection. If he was patient and rode out his current contract while maintaining good form the sharks would probably give him the sort of deal he's chasing. They've said as much previously. It's another reason why I wouldn't want him in red and blue, he would need to genuinely want to be here.
