Geez mate he looked like GI when he pulled the club polo on!!
A few journos are printing click bait rubbish about Latrells 16 matches at fullback for the chooks but casually forgetting to point out that he was 18.. in his debut year in the NRL.. relevant anyone lol!!
Reckon he feels a touch more at home in the NRL by now don’t ya reckon.

"I'm not GI": Latrell to blaze his own trail at the Bunnies

They would be deeply upset mate but what can you do? Can’t have the best fullback in the game and the next great fullback bubbling out in the centre’s both on marquee coin. Rock and a hard place for them really and money better spent elsewhere.
They can’t really be too gutted though.. with two premierships in the kit bag you couldn’t possibly get a better result. But uncle Nick just saw his threepeet wither and die on the vine.. for which we will hopefully get the opportunity to deliver the last rites to this year.

"I'm not GI": Latrell to blaze his own trail at the Bunnies

Mate don’t underestimate our pack with or without Arrow. Our biggest issue late last year was getting on the front foot early in our sets. Young Doueihi was just starting to make inroads but we were gassed by then.
Latrells ability to bust tackles will creat a lot of opportunity for Cooky to take control early and send his mobile pack up the field and seize momentum.
I like young Sua a lot and reckon he will light it up a bit this year with a permanent starting role. Two of the most improved props last year were Liam Knight & Junior Tatola! Turgess will take up a leadership role and be strong for us so there’s not much that needs to change there mate.
Of course Arrow would be sweet as but Titans just showing how amateurish they are by bringing a pocket knife to a gun fight.. I mean we already have Arrow boys, he is goooone so you want to waste a year of everyone’s time whilst blokes like David Fifita remains unsigned beyond next year..I mean seriously start planning for the year now where you are pulling the trigger on a top 4 finish. We can wait and for anyone that thinks Cam Murray is going anywhere ever, you are tripping. Souths Junior who grew up watching his old man play for the green & myrtle and already touted as future club captain. Foundation player who we will build our club around and he will go out like Sutto the club legend.

And yet I wouldn’t swap em for anyone else bro?

Amen champion!!

It's finally over: Latrell Mitchell officially has a new club

I’m so happy right now. Just an all round brilliant recruit for the bunnies and only a dribbler would say otherwise.
Bring on Arrow, we got a premiership to win.

Best winger in the game is Ado Carr

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

Different style of winger mate and to be fair this metre munching winger thing is relatively new to the “prototype” of a modern day flank.
Johnstone raw speed goes a long way to grabbing back some metres off kick offs similar to how young Ryan Pappasomething does at the storm with the Fox.
Just different styles is all but the number one criteria for a winger will always be catch, run and finish and he does that extremely well.

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

Definitely looking forward to another season of Cook, he is just about ready to explode I reckon.
You can beat us a hundred times but until you knock us over in a GF we will always have the bigger grin!

Souths to be the beneficiaries of Roosters' gamble on Latrell

Lol not many shows that night mate from anyone! Let’s not get started on the overrated Cleary thing again.
I’m not swapping Latrell and Cody for anyone mate. Cody getting better every year champ.

Souths to be the beneficiaries of Roosters' gamble on Latrell

Be nice if we can land Latrell and Arrow for 2020 huh!
Can’t wait to see this spine particularly the Cody/Latrell show! With Arrow and Murray eating up the yards and dominating the ruck speed I can see a Dally M for Cooky too.
Just get it done!

Souths to be the beneficiaries of Roosters' gamble on Latrell

Well at wing he was consistently leading try scorer or at the top in the greatest comp in the world in a comp where international wingers haven’t been able to cut it at all.
What would you call him?

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

And of course we add Arrow to the mix up front and we look strong everywhere.

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

Geez i reckon Johnstone and Gags on the wing would be definite concern for opposition teams mate. Both are outstanding dangerous ball runners and world class finishers. Nobody enjoys marking up on jimmy the jet either FYI.
I think people forget how great a winger Gags can be? Wish he would just settle there now but he knew his next contract would be winger money so probably not too keen there.
I get your point about our pack but I reckon Latrell bringing the ball back may counter our potential lack of go forward by bringing cooky into the set sooner similar to how GI used to get us on front foot early.
I reckon if we look at the modern day spine I genuinely wouldn’t swap any of em.. Reynolds, Walker, Cooky, Murray and Mitchell. I would of course consider Tedesco but I think Mitchell has potential to be as good. The rest of them I am sticking.

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

Latrell will be fullback mate guaranteed.

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

Souths using what roosters have already paid him for 2020 season ($116k) towards his contract under the cap which leaves Souths to just make up the difference.

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

Again mate, young Alex wants to play fullback not wing. Therefore if his desire to do so outweighs his personal commitment to the bunnies he will have to look elsewhere. We gave him his shot and he didn’t cement it.
If he is happy to accept that he is one of the great wingers in the world there is no way Souths letting him go and I hope he doesn’t.
So what happens here is Souths are shopping him around as a fullback right, not a winger, so Alex will get more coin and Souths will help boost his next contract.. IF he definitely wants to be a fullback.
Gags is the same mate, he wants to play centre but we now see him as a winger after we gave him 2 seasons worth of cementing his spot. We now have two young blokes showing massive potential in the centres in Burns & Graham who are defensively much harder to get past than Gags. I think Gags is awesome and if he goes on the other wing I would be stoked.. reality is he is on world class centre coin and doesn’t want to play on the wing. What do ya do?

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

What?? You probably said that last year too mate. On what planet aren’t we top 4 minimum expectation? Add Latrell and Arrow mate and you would be some kind of hillbilly stupid not to rate us.
Also once and forever Latrell wants to play Fullback.. not at the titans or tigers where no chance of success short term, but at a strong club. You all keep sinking the boot in on the young man and painting this tainted picture of the boy but reality is he has backed himself to play and learn fullback and has sacrificed coin to do so?
Pretty admirable I reckon so please stop slinging mud on the kid. And for all y’all who think he won’t make it or he isn’t as good as he thinks… then you havebt been watching. Kid is going to be a superstar who just wants a lot more than 5-6 touches a game and under Robbo life as a centre is boring as hell!
The crap you blokes make up is hilarious.

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

Not gonna trade our Cody for anyone mate not even Keary (legend).
Just having good thoughts about Murray, Crichton and Arrow as our back row combination with Latrell chiming in.. that would be serious carnage right!!!

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

You are talking about one of the best forwards to ever put on a boot JA? Nobody can doubt big Sams attitude and ability to put his body on the line for his team and mates.. to the point where I don’t even need to say anything else except I can wholeheartedly assure you that we will get a lot more value out of him than sorting paper clips… guys a dead set legend mate?

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

Oh I get it now.. roosters are negotiating around the $120k they’ve already paid Mitchell as it will be included in their salary cap but not Souths… which means Souths effectively:
A. don’t need to find much more space in cap to pay him
B. Can use roosters coin to justify the offer meeting market value to auditor to register contract.
Sounds like just a fair dinkum business deal between the suits now. A fair negotiation requires both parties to feel a touch hard done by but happy to move on.

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

I was deliriously happy with the SMH article until the TELE article came out saying Latrell knocked us back?? Noooo
I haven’t heard anything at all about this, not even a whisper but if Toronto Wolfpack just paid $10m for Sonny Bill surely there’s a few million USD for Latrell in the kitty?
Anyways something weird is going on with SMH reporting roosters to kick in $120k to boost Souths offer and Tele saying they want $120k back from Latrell?? I dunno fingers crossed as I truly believe with Latrell at FB coupled with our community programs in the aboriginal space would be a perfect fit for him and for us.
Next year we bringing Angus back too ????????????????????????????????????

"My stay at the Roosters has come to an end": Mitchell confirms he's flown the coop ahead of likely Souths move

I get it mate but reality dictates the reasons behind the medical retirements were genuine and passed muster.
Contrary to popular belief we aren’t treated preferentially to any other club. If there was any favouritism it would’ve been player related not club, i.e 2 bona fide absolute legends of the sport accorded a touch of leniency for services rendered.
The rule is there to protect the game and it has been applied quite evenly. So let’s not sweep the process under the carpet and please stop banging on about it. Can you imagine the kind of legal action the NRL would face if it was a stitch up or extreme due diligence wasn’t followed, not to mention the fraud by the independent doctors involved.
It’s just not plausible to think it’s anything other than legitimate reasoning from medical for which neither GI or Sam need to disclose. Like I said the earth is round, we don’t live in a Truman show, please let’s move on!!

Arrow will be at Redfern in 2020 when the Bunnies make the Titans a decent offer

I can guarantee that wasn’t the case mate. Gus grew up supporting the Rorters which is one of his very few character flaws…the other one being a Rugby Union player. Absolute shame though!

Titans shoot down possibility of Arrow moving early

Sigh
