Between us and the Cowboys now, I’m guessing. I think we are most likely to sign him currently, especially since Maguire confirmed Tigers’ interests in him, and Cowboys are still hesitant to choose between LM and Holmes.

Or he could stay at Rorters for less money! But really, Rorters wanted him they’d find cars, boats, houses, small pacific villages to throw at him off the books. They don’t want him

Steve I’m starting to think it’s more life after footy where the Roosters have the wood on everyone else

Attitude is his problem… if you can coach him out of his bad attitude then it will be awesome… he has all the skills no doubt but his attitude kills it.

Does it? He just won back to back premierships.

Yes the Roosters did but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t got an attitude problem.

So who’s saying he does?

Do I have to spell it out for you? The Roosters pulling out says a lot already… plus did you watch the game against Tonga… he was out of sorts there… Freddy not selecting him to be part of the SoO team… boils down to attitude… again he has all the skills but he needs to get his attitude right… hopefully Madge has the answers and/or can help him with it

Worst performance I’ve seen in an Australian jersey

Maybe you’re too young to remember Paul Hauff.

Pretty sure Lockyer’s debut for Australia was a shocker.

Canterbury’s retention spree has resulted in Dallin Watene-Zelezniak,

This is what stops Doggies looking at Latrell. They were happy with the late-season form of DWZ and his re-signing means they aren’t willing to pay top dollar to have Latrell run around in the centres.

I expect no team is going to pay $1M for a bloke to hang around in the centres, because it’s not that key position any more.

You’d have to be looking at him as a fullback, and that’s Latrell’s challenge, always has been at the Roosters, to sell himself as a fullback.

Even before Tedesco signed, Roosters had a strained relationship with Latrell, recall they dropped or threatened to drop him a few times right when he started first grade. Then they moved him to centre and signed Tedesco, which dries up his path to highest riches, because Tedesco is currently a superior footballer.

Imagine being in the Roosters’ position, willing to let Latrell walk. Shows you what kind of obscene roster they have.

You are spot on. He has the ability to be an elite fullback in the Inglis mould but is unproven. The only teams that will offer him the coin required likely to be 900K+ for 3-4 years would only do it at fullback. Roosters are smart with Tedesco at fullback 800k is the max you pay for any centre.
If the Tigers are serious waiting this out is the smart move. Apart from the Cowboys any team that makes a move will have to shed players so there may be an opportunity there.

I’d prefer 2 high quality forwards as we have too many holes in the roster as it is but if Madge thinks he can get him to be as good as Inglis was you have to back his judgement.

Wish we’d sign some elite forwards first, wherever they are.

Couldnt agree more, if your pack isnt at least breaking even then you could have the best backs in the comp but would lose more than you win.Pigs win matches.

Yep we had the best fullback in the world for years and still lost more than we won.

Yes but we also had JT as the coach.

@TCL yeah. The whole attacking plan was pass it to teddy and see what he can do

@Tiger_Steve he’ll be a tiger by the end of the month. Speak it into existence 😆

No Dogs in the fight! Canterbury pulls out of battle for Latrell Mitchell’s signature

@bythebeardofzeus While I don’t disagree with the sentiment that we need more forwards, I’d argue that our backs let us down a bit last year, and it was D and the grit of our young forward pack that kept us in the hunt at the back-end of the season. The market is saturated, there aren’t too many forwards going around at the moment; unless of course, you’re willing to outbid, out-negotiate or pay to release a player contracted to another club (i.e. pay overs). There is no point carting it up the guts all day if you can’t score tries - an area where we’ve been a bit deficient in recently as our defence has tightened up. Who do you guys think would attract better talent & business opportunities to the club, Arrow, Frizell or Latrell? It’s a dead-set no brainer IMO. Latrell is available, on the market today, and we’re one of only 2/3 clubs who can fit him in TODAY. We have 5m in the bank for next year + a new state of the art COE. If that’s not attractive to prospective signings than I don’t know what to tell you guys anymore. Latrell is the franchise player this club has been waiting for since the big 4 fiasco, it’s not hard to see.

I hear the Tigers will sign LM to a $2M contract on the provision he never tries to grow a bum fluff moustache EVER whilst at the club!

As far as I’m concerned he can grow the seedest porno mo he wants if he signs here.

I wonder if Wolfpack fans are upset about the possibility of signing SBW. Maybe thinking they should be signing a cheap player instead.

He dosent come off their cap to the same extent.His classification in the ESL is he would be 150k off the cap no matter what you pay him
