it's pretty poor squad management if they lose Pierce. He's basically a ready made replacement for Patty T game style wise and has shown in his Super chances he can seriously foot it at this level.
He seems to have all the attributes to be a very good Super Rugby player, it's strange why he didn't get more starts especially in the SRA when Patrick was injured. Off field/attitude issues?
Good to see Patrick has signed to 2025, first AB to sign for that long. You could argue he was the difference between the Blues success in SRA to SRTT. He's a big hole to fill.
