Pearce's road to recovery

If you haven't already subscribed to LVL Up, this is definitely the week to do it.

The documentary series, brought to you by Isagenix, brings you the behind-the-scenes, fly-on-the-wall access into the Knights inner-sanctum that can't be seen anywhere else.

This week, the series takes a look at Mitchell Pearce’s two-and-a-half month road to recovery following the pectoral injury he sustained against the Dragons back in April.


After sustaining a similar injury in 2018, Pearce immediately knew that the injury was serious after attempting to make a tackle on Tariq Sims.

“The last time I had a serious pec injury I had a similar feeling,” Pearce said.

“It wasn’t as bad at first contact so I was hopeful that I might have just strained it or something but as the set went on, about 2-3 minutes later I started to feel it expanding a bit and that’s when you know you’ve had a rupture and it’s kind of serious.”

Pearce was rushed into surgery as quickly as possible, with his rehab journey beginning soon after.

“I was really lucky I got in pretty much within two or three days so once you get the surgery you are recovering for a week or so,” he said.

Following surgery Peace was quick to build into his training programs, including doing some one arm weights and a lot of aerobic fitness on the bike.

Other than Pearce’s previous pectoral injury, the only serious injury he had is a ruptured hamstring in 2015 during his time at the Roosters.

“Any time I’ve been injured I just try and take the time to see what I can work on to come back better,” Pearce said.

“I’ve sat back and tried to see the game from a different perspective and see where I can help the team and then personally what I can add when I come back.”

This is just a snippet of Pearce's journey.
