An awesome player and a genuine fighter - look at what he's had to struggle through over the years - he would be a great asset on our board.

"... confidence is the essence of a good team."

HIRE THIS MAN!

Honestly, this guy was one tough bastard on the field and, as history has shown, even tougher off it. Bloody legend.

Probably Cronulla's greatest captain since their inception.

My fav memeroies of "skipper" are not of him playing for us but playing for the Water Board in the old Public Service comp midweek in the Domain , their were some tough buggers running around in that comp I'll tell ya .

Can you imagine that happening in this day and age ? NRL skipper working Full Time and being allowed to play for his workplace midweek ???Ha ! Not bloody likely !

Oh and what about 78 talk about a rip off - considering it was the wrong guy he should have been exonerated but that was never going to happen was it ?

I agree we need to get this bloke back on board somehow - he's keen as... ( and he has the business smarts )

I'm sure someone will correct me but there was a newspaper article about 6 months ago where Pierce said he had applied for the CEO role and had not got any type of response from the club,

As I said he is keen as

All throughout this forum people state how we have to win back the shire etc etc. Here we have a bloke who is tertiary educated and has obtained a degree. A bloke who was in upper management within the COMMUNITY of Lord Howe Island. A former captain of Cronulla Sutherland playing over 200 first grade games for the sharks. Our first Kangaroo and our first test captain. A guy amongst 9 others on a print that hangs on my wall. A true battler and cancer surviver. A sharks legend, who wants a job back where it started, in fact he is probably one of a few who actually got our club into the hearts of those in the shire. We want to engage with community, make the shire proud ofthe sharks brand again. Is it just me or does something just doesn't add up here. It's not a hollywood fairytale but **** it reads like one.

What he said above :good::good::good:

He has what it takes - and he is a Shark through & through - as evidenced by his incredible battle with his health - I'll back this guy until death....
