Fair point, comparing Pearce as an Origin player to Webcke or Lockyer is apples and oranges. I thought Pearce was solid in Game 1 and did his job. He has been very good this season and hopefully he gets what he deserves tomorrow night to add along to the Grand Final he has won.Maybe, but they were 2 great players at that level, winners or losers. Pearce for the most part has been a rubbish Origin player. Still find it hard to believe that after winning in'14 without him they went straight back to him.
Nobody with a brain is doing that it's the stupid people who probably don't even know what shape the ball is that is doing that. The amount of stupid posts on facebook and comments on the street I see and hear during Origin from people of both sides of the fence is crazy. Neighbors of mine's daughter is such a proud QLD fan and thinks that Jarryd Hayne is the QLD captain and that Thurston is a centre.**** me, people are actually comparing Pearce to Thurston and Locky on social media...If in 10 years time he's dominated the sport I could understand the comparisons, like the Johns v Locky stuff but seriously... He wins 1 fucken game and everyone's forgotten about his other 'outings' in this arena. **** I hope Thurston tears it up tomorrow night!!!
