The captain and halfback, Pearce is the architect of the team.
Having joined the Knights in December 2017 from the Sydney Roosters, in what was a huge signing for the Club, Pearce made an immediate impact when he kicked the match winning field goal in his first game in Round 1 of the 2018 season.
He went to another level last season, winning six straight man of the match awards on his way to a return to the Origin arena, where he was a major catalyst in a NSW series victory.
Pearce made his NRL debut with the Roosters in 2007 as a 17-year-old and won a premiership with the team in 2013.
The playmaker has some big game experience playing not only Origin, but also NRL All Stars and NSW City.
He became the youngest ever player in NRL history to play 200 matches in the top grade.
The son of Wayne Pearce, he has an exceptional kicking game, is a great competitor and possess strong leadership qualities.
