@weststigers am I missing something or is Brooks at 5 a typo?

Nope you saw correct he is going to the wing and Packer will play 7 😉

Wonder if he and Roycie would bring the Fax machine and the Morse code back for the team lists as well

@WT2K said in Roosters pull Mitchell’s contract offer:

Canterbury CEO Andrew Hill says the Bulldogs will not be pursuing Roosters centre Latrell Mitchell as he tests his value on the open market.

The Bulldogs have been linked with Mitchell for much of 2019 but they have moved to douse links with the 22-year-old after the international held a meeting with a Canterbury official in recent weeks.

“Usually we don’t make comment around our recruitment and retention strategies,” Hill said.

“However, with all the speculation around this matter we thought it was the right thing to do by everyone to confirm we won’t pursue an interest in Latrell Mitchell.”

The Bulldogs’ public comments come following a recruitment and retention committee meeting involving Hill, coach Dean Pay and football manager Steve Price on Friday.

The club remains well and truly in the market for at least one marquee player in 2021 when its salary cap pressure eases further, but most of its 2020 cap has already been spent.

Canterbury’s retention spree has resulted in Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, Lachlan Lewis and Renouf Tuomonga re-signing in the past week.

The Roosters remain open to granting Mitchell a release from the final year of his contract after withdrawing their extension offer on Tuesday.

This may become the Steven Bradbury signing - we get him because no one else is left in the race!!!

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.

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

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

Pity his centre partner, Manu, wasn’t available. He seems well grounded and plays consistently well.

Wonder if dragons would swap Frizell for him?

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

@Tiger_Steve Not that they don’t want him I don’t think. They’ve retracted their offer. Obviously something went on behind the scenes between them and Latrell that we don’t know about

I think that the Cowboys interest in LM is just designed to put pressure on VH to sign up ASAP.
