Mitchell Pearce is expected to make a call on his future just as the NRL makes a determination on whether leading suitor Manly have rorted the salary cap. Pearce is believed to be leaning towards joining the Sea Eagles after the Roosters granted him a release, but will also consider pitches from Cronulla and Newcastle. The Sea Eagles hold appeal due to Pearce's respect for coach Trent Barrett, a bond that stretches back to their NSW halves combination from the 2010 State of Origin campaign.
The mentor guiding Mitchell Pearce believes the in-demand halfback will only get better at his new club and has the potential of breaking through the magical 400-game barrier. Pearce is in high demand, with his manager emailing all 16 NRL clubs at 6:32pm on Monday night to inform them he is officially available. Manly, having released pivot Blake Green to the Warriors, are the early favourites for his signature.
Rugby league coach Des Hasler has begun legal action against the Canterbury Bulldogs after being sacked by the NRL club just five months after a two-year contract extension was announced. Hasler's legal team have filed documents in Australia's Supreme Court with the alleged breach of contract case set for a directions hearing on December 1. If the Bulldogs are forced to make a payout, it could count against the new A$5.7 million (NZ$6.3m) soft cap on club spending, which has just come into effect.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
