Mitchell Pearce

Say of him what you will, but if you ask most Roosters fans if they are pleased with the re-signing of Pearce, they will tell you that they are – with the Roosters halfback signing a new long-term deal at the club, that will see him stay with the Tricolours until the end of the 2017 NRL season.

Pearce, who has been the Roosters halfback since 2007 and played in 130 games at just 23 years of age, is regarded as a future captain of the club and he cannot wait to get stuck into this season and future seasons with the Roosters.

“It’s an honour that I don’t take lightly to represent the Roosters. I couldn’t see myself playing anywhere else and I’m really happy to be contracted here long term,” said Pearce.

“There’s a fantastic team here at the club on and off the field and I’m so proud that I’ll continue to be a part of all this for the next four years,” added Pearce.

The club themselves are equally excited to have Pearce extend his stay at the club, with the Roosters Chief Operating Officer Brian Canavan, pleased to have Pearce well and truly a part of their future plans.

“Mitchell came to the Roosters as part of our pathway program and has been part of the club’s commitment to developing our young players for a number of years now, and to ensure that we have him here long-term is not only a major vote of confidence in where we are heading, but a wonderful coup for our club,” said Canavan.

Coach Trent Robinson was also pleased with the re-signing, in what is his first year working with the talented halfback.

“Mitchell is a big part of the future of our club. He is a significant member of our leadership group and a genuine person not only I but everyone at the club values both on and off the footy field as well.”
