The Triple M Grill Team tackle all the big issues from the weekend's footy with the Coates Hire NRL Recovery Session.
Will Mitchell Pearce be in the halves for NSW?
Matty Johns has told the Triple M Grill Team he believes the Blues will give him another chance this year.
“I think he and [James] Maloney, if they just hold their form I think they’re absolute certainties,” said Matty Johns, on the Triple M Grill Team.
Mitchell Pearce returned for the Roosters over the weekend, leading the team to an impressive 38-nil win over the Knights.
Playing against the NSW incumbent Trent Hodkinson, Mitchell Pearce was at his dominating best.
“He was the main reason they won. It’s not the fact he was the best player on the ground, but the fact he makes other people around him look better,” added MG.

Earlier, former Origin player Ryan Girdler told Sunday Triple M NRL Mitchell Pearce is probably the best halfback NSW has at the moment.
“His kicking game is first class and he has a really good running game, but he’s also got a really good defensive and passing game,” said Girds, on Sunday Triple M NRL.
Mitchell Pearce was banned for eight weeks after his drunk Australia Day antics. But Girds believes he will come back with a new motivation and different attitude to what he’s taken into footy in the past.
“I believe one of the things on his list will be to win an Origin series for NSW,” he said.
