Latrell Mitchell Contract Discussion

Strike a light - Trell sure ticks a few boxes:

A player who can convert tries - 4 becomes 6 tick
An attacking weapon not seen since Teddy tick
Indigenous - shades of all those before him in our team colours tick
A potential face of the club - guaranteed popular draw card tick
A State and Australian representative tick
Youthful and his best years in front of him tick
A key attraction to encourage new players to become Tigers in the future tick
A sponsor’s dream tick

What’s not to like??

I loved Paul Walker (RIP) in Fast & Furious.
Now there’s a new namesake who (if he comes here) will be a God to the Wests Tigers fans!

Whoops - got carried away there, too much distraction - I meant to say Mitchell!!

Thanks champion avacadoontoast.

I seem to recall a couple of Howlers from LM at fullback pre-Teddy. He was very young then 19-20 but the Roosters did target Teddy as they obviously recognised LM was not the guy they wanted at FB going forward.

It does beg the question as to whether LM can make it as a top flight fullback. We are certainly paying him as one.

He’s an incredible talent, no doubt.

He would be a great signing. But can he play FB?

He’s an excellent centre, that’s all I’ve seen so far from his time at the Rorters.

I’m not sold.

Nuff said.

(am I having déjà vu?)

Looks like he enjoys carving Penrith up. Can only be a good thing.

Some were NYC clips …which lends me to my next question

Who was the 6 …Radley ??

Conor Watson was 6 in a few

New to the WT forum and love the banter ladies and gents.

My two cents - I’m not sure if LM is the right fit for our club. He’s unproven as a FB, seems flaky when making decisions (regardless of management) and Madge is a no nonsense coach that won’t accept mediocrity. So there’s a possible head clash in the future.

It feels like a possible speculative signing for the sake of signing a 'marquee 'player.

Might be wrong, but I hope to be proven wrong.

In Madge we trust
EEYAH TIGER!

Welcome to the forum. The other thing about LM that just dawned on me and shows another upside to him coming, first let me just say it may just be my own perception the mods would know for sure, but i cant remember a time so many long time followers heave registered on the forum to voice an opinion. There seems to be heaps of people registering to have a say about LM i think its great, thats just on the forum imagine the extra interest and exposure the club would receive in the public.

👍

What I find interesting is that we pulled our offer because we have more irons in the fire…but we are yet to see, apart from Leilua, anything else of any substance…
My impression would have been that ok we’ve pulled our offer and we have now made offers to X,Y,Z…
Still haven’t heard anything…

Well I think we had a crack at both Moylan and Milford after we withdrew our offer to Latrell, but they are staying put. We also enquired after JAC, but Bellyache won’t release him, so I think all of our irons have been snuffed out. Hence, our re-interest in signing Latrell. Sadly we never got the chance to offer Brimson anything as our offer to Mitchell was still on the table when he re-signed with the Titans.

Tigers Never interested in Milford

1 or 6, he looks pretty bloody good to me, just get him.
