Well said! Could Canberra have scored with another six? If they did would that have been an even bigger issue. The ball that hit the trainer probably saved Canberra from a certain penalty with the kicker having had his legs taken out late. That hit was much later than Cooper Cronk’s early tackle, perhaps Cooper was hard done by!
All I can say is, the NRL is not his dream now, it reminds me of Hayne. Any club he plays for he will be unsettled, he was unsettled as a winger wanting to play fullback, as a NRL player wanting to play NFL. Would any club want him?
Latrell Mitchell is a very good player and deserves to be on good money. He is on very good money for a centre, however there is generally more money on offer for the “Spine”. He needs to move into the “spine”. There are lots of rumours he wants to be a Fullback, in order for him command fullback money. At this stage of his career he doesn’t have the “motor” to play fullback and may never. Latrell needs to get more involved at centre before he could attempt this leap. Long term 5/8 is a better prospect as it is more explosive speed and less Aerobic. He needs to touch the ball more to justify more money. Luke Keary is learning from Cooper Cronk and is ready for the transition to half back leaving a spot for Latrell at 5/8. There are lots of rumours linking him to Souths but he doesn’t have the fitness to play fullback and they have established halves. If Latrell wants to take his game to the next level and create a lasting impression on the game then there is no better place than the Roosters with the No.6 on his back once Cronk retires.
