If Mitchell goes on the open market he may end up at the Knights, he has some connection with either the club or the area..read something earlier in the year that Newie were interested in his services
He's from Taree. Bedsy has some association with him. Not sure how deep it runs though.

If Latrell was to go on the market, we wouldn't be the only club looking closely at him I can guarantee you that.
Of course but we would be the only one with a clear vacancy at fullback, money to spend, not far from where he lives now, good coach, no one in front of him.

Unless that market was a swap for Teddy... then we could be the only ones.
Honestly I might get laughed at, but I reckon Mitchell will be better than Tedesco. Mitchell is 19 and he is providing with solid performances. He isn't showing glimpses of "potential" he's putting out consistently at such a young age.

Imo sign Cronk at 1.1-2 a season for a season with an option in our favour for the next, pending a coaching role. Having Cronk guide Mitchell will be so influnicial in his mental state of the game. Sign Nathan Cleary after Cooper retires and you've got someone who could replicate Cronks style of play.

As for Watson, he should be second option if we can't sign Cronk. He's a gun and will bring heaps to this club.

1. Latrell Mitchell
6. Cooper Cronk
7. Luke Brooks

I'd take Teddy at a million any day of the week. Mitchell would be nothing but trouble.

We can create enough of our own without buying it.

Mitchell is a sensational talent, I'd take him over Tedesco with Mitchell being a much cheaper option.

If we lose Ted I would love to sign Mitchell, if only so the Roosters can taste the pain we've had so often.

Your dreaming if you think you could lure Mitchell for 400g in these days of inflated contracts. Okay he might be on 250 or so now, but once he hits the open market his price will start at 500g. I mean if Moses can command close to a million, Mitchell is not far behind

Probably, but even at $500-600 the maths is the same. Believe it or not there are not many (any) other clubs that can offer what we do right now.....opportunity, position, coaching, money, vicinity to home

Teddy first, Mitchell second. Gordon third if he doesn't retire.

While it would be nice to pick up Gordon and Cronk for experience, we need to be getting some killer youngsters up or have ideal replacements like Melbourne, Brisbane and even Manly under Des did. Teams like that just don't miss finals series all the time.

In the Ivan Bus we trust.

He's 19? He is getting and he is worth more than Teddy was at the same age.

He's showing much more promise and consistency than Tedesco did at the same age. Less injuries, too.

Getting Mitchell and Watson would be better long term than keeping Tedesco. It won't happen unless the NRL determine Teddy has to be registered at at least 1m p.a. On the cap as they should. Roosters and Dogs have too much influence on NRL and Greenberg.
