Arrows current contract at the titans is not worth much so losing him won’t be enough. If Taylor leaves then the titans will likely pay some of his salary elsewhere. With the resigning of brimson, losing 2 players as high profile as arrow and Taylor won’t be enough for what latrell wants. The kid has already won 2 premierships and an origin series so I’m not sure what further Mal can advise him on, there would be no point in him going up there on smaller money in order to ‘build something’.
Also have it on good authority he won’t be joining a Queensland team
The one thing Mal can give him is a free ride into the Australian team.
@Cultured_Bogan it’s true though . People come on here for informed discussion , and a genuine love of the tigers . Yet there’s no acknowledgement of the positive changes from some fans . I don’t want an echo chamber , but , clear miserable death riding contributes nothing.
If you want to say Lattrell isn’t worth it , or we should play Mbye here etc. that’s constructive discussion.
The tigers suck , Pascoe is useless , Brooks is crap, we will always suck … tell me how this is anything other than , a clear need to see a psychologist?
So you’re saying if your opinion is that someone in admin is doing their job poorly, or one of the players is rubbish, you need to see a psychologist?
I don’t know if we’ll get Latrell or not, Souths need to replace forwards though, not backs. I also think Bennett is past his use by date as a coach… look at the wonders he did with Great Britain. If we do miss out I’d chase Radrada. Reported he only wants $500k. I’d even go out on a limb and offer him a bit more and give him a go at fullback… what a danger he would be returning the ball and running off playmakers.
Mitchell had the fourth fast racorded speed this year at 36.6km.
That tells half the story. Supposedly Nofo had the 2nd fastest speed, but when you are (like Latrell) 100+kg at that speed with great upper body strength, thats a hard pakage to defend against. The challenge for Latrell, no matter where he plays is to maintain his pace, weight and strength.
GI couldnt do it. I hope LM can.
Inglis managed for a long time after he was 22…
As for the narritive that our forwards are lacking. Yes we could use a couple of players but i dont think its as bad as some are making out.
We have these guys who will be in the 17 somewhere -
Michael Chee Kam
Thats the start of a very solid pack right there!
And we have these guys who are in the mix depending on form -
Go ahead and spend the million on Mitchell, we will be ok!
Absolutely. You don’t pass up on 22 year old dual premiership winning try scoring machines who have also represented country and state, ESPECIALLY when you’re in deficit in both positions they are extremely capable of filling.
We have a bunch of coin available at the end of next year, spend it on the quality forwards that come onto the market.
Well you will be happy then …late last night I got a message from an ex sponsor of the Cows …they have decided they want Holmes
About 50 posters too late…thanks scoop
Well this scoop will be close to the mark …if this bloke doesn’t know something going on in Townsville it isn’t worth knowing
Yes well in this case the big “scoop” could have come from reading numerous articles published yesterday to the same effect…
Yeah possibly …if there is anyone outside of the Cows current circle with info it is this bloke
Cowboys games at HT they have a kiss the person next to you where they show a person in the crowd …when they put his pic on the screen I reckon at least a thousand people screamed out his name like a Cheers moment …
I asked him do they do that every week and he said it was the 1st time
Is his name Norm?
I see @happy_tiger negative nellie chicken little toad digesting has infected WTF…
possible comment of the off-season!!!
What …because I understand that footy games aren’t won by outside backs
Because I understand we lost arguably our best forward and then arguably our 2nd best forward when fit
Said it a million times , you might have the best 7,6 and 1 those blokes in the 8,10,11,12 and 13 jerseys can’t build a platform you lose a lot of footy games
Sorry for the dose of reality
Yeah they sucked so much I’m amazed we got to 9th…like ever
Can’t believe people are going to be disappointed to sign Latrell Mitchell…
Gee Geo 9th …easily satisfied
Not knocking his signing IF it happens …my issue is people’s expectation if he does sign …we won’t become contenders overnight
And you know we need forwards badly …we are massively undermanned for 2020 in the forwards
If we have spent a million it only leaves 700 k for 4 players …we will get some absolute superstars for that money …especially back rowers and props
That’s assuming no one else is being shipped off …don’t give up on that happening just yet.
