@TigerTiger said in NSW Origin II Team:
For mine, Latrell is the best player in the comp. Followed by Teddy, Cook and Ponga. He didnt have the best game in Origin 1, but he’s still the best centre in the game without a doubt.
Fittler is just a pawn in all this, as it has to be political. Latrell has done something the Roosters hierarchy doesn’t like, and this is his punishment. They are just flexing their muscles over him.
Fittler said “he needs to find his smile again”.
Gould, a long term Politis man, said “he needs to sort out his personal issues”.
He fired his manager who wanted a quick deal with the Rorters…the kid wants to wait until 2020 to test the market.
This is their way / media mates of saying “see what happens”.
I’d be willing to bet Mitchell takes the break to “freshen up” and signs long term with Rorters…miraculously recalled for game 3.
