As the Rugby League World Cup comes to a close, there is plenty of talk about player movement and now there is discussion over Mitchell Pearce.
It comes after Pearce returned to his former club the Sydney Roosters this week to talk to their up and coming young stars due to his friendship with Jake Friend who is still at the club.
Whilst in Sydney, Pearce spoke with Roosters chief Nick Politis.
With Pearce entering the final year of his deal at Catalans Dragons in 2023, it has subsequently been speculated by the Daily Telegraph that a return to the Roosters in 2024 would not be off the table with the publication suggesting that he could take up the number 14 spot at the Roosters in 2024 for one last hoorah.
Pearce won the 2013 Grand Final with the Roosters alongside James Maloney whom he replaced at the Dragons in 2022 after he moved to Lezignan in the Elite One Championship in France after guiding Catalans to the League Leaders’ Shield and an inaugural Grand Final appearance in 2021.
The Dragons have reportedly told Josh Drinkwater that he is welcome to find a new club for 2023 with a move to Warrington Wolves thought to be likely, which means that for now keeping hold of Pearce is a must for the club.
However, a move in 2024 allowing Pearce to have one last go at NRL glory is not off the cards. In fact, according to the Daily Telegraph it could be very possible.
