Sydney Roosters star Latrell Mitchell fined after incident at pub

The Sydney Roosters have notified the NRL Integrity Unit after centre Latrell Mitchell was fined by police over an incident at a nightclub on the NSW mid-north coast last weekend.

The club has decided not to sanction the State of Origin star after police confirmed a 21-year-old man had been issued with a criminal infringement notice after a night out with friends at the Old Bar Tavern, near his home town of Taree. Mitchell was allegedly part of a group of men who got into a scuffle with another group.

Reports suggest Mitchell wasn’t involved in a physical altercation but that he allegedly argued with security staff as both groups were kicked out of the venue.

Mitchell was cautioned by Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson, but the club decided not to punish the Blues centre and warned him about his behaviour while out in public.

and the pre season continues

Night club lol. I guess the journalist has never been to the Old Bar Tavern 😂

So Roosters say nothing to see here, and you can bet the NRL will say the same, yet the police fine him. Well, I’m glad the Roosters know better than the police.

What I want to know is, who came up with the absolutely stupid idea of letting clubs determine how much their own players should be penalised? Yes I know the integrity unit then checks, but come on, no club (except maybe Knights) will punish their player fairly. Why even pretend?

The rorters were actually going to fine him $1.50 but toddy wrote him a character reference so it’s all ok

Just another problem the blues will have in their camp.

Latrell and Jimmy the Git will be an excellent centre pairing

Sounds to me this is a case of a star being hassled by jealous mugs, his mates protect him, star argues with security for not doing enough.

If this was a tigers player we would all be saying “nothing to see here”
