Blues origin star Mitchell Pearce’s playing future is under a cloud.

He was arrested following an altercation over the weekend.

Mitchell Van Homrigh reports.


The Rooster’s Halfback was staying away from the media this morning.

His immediate playing future is in question following a late-night incident at a Kings Cross nightclub.

It is unlikely that he will be considered for Origin.

Vox 1: “Hopefully he does, I don’t know what is happening.”

Anthony Minichiello, Roosters Captain: “Don’t know anything about it mate and I can’t comment.”

And St George coach Steve Price was upset with his team, after it suffered a 38-6 defeat to the Bulldogs.

Steve Price, St George coach: “Very soft performance, no excuses that was soft.”

St George are planning on bringing in late signing Benji Marshall, for the clash against Parramatta next weekend.
