If I was Mitchell and was mulling over where to play to be in a consistent top 4 side over the next 4 years, I would choose Souths without out a doubt. I also think from a cultural and heritage perspective Souths would be better.
If Mitchell is being driven by wanting to be a side which is very inconsistent but having the opportunity to help build something special then the Tigers would be a good fit.
If it is money then it really is a toss of the coin as he will get good dollars where ever he goes.
Frankly, if he comes to the Tigers great, fantastic to get bums on seats, memberships etc, great for sponsors but if he doesn’t so be it.
The Sydney Roosters have today advised the management of Latrell Mitchell that the Club’s offer for 2021 and beyond has been withdrawn following discussions with Latrell today.
Latrell has expressed that he would like to explore his options for season 2021, however he remains under contract with the Roosters for season 2020.
Try NFL, don’t come here.
Up our way in the mid north coast, Group 2 and 3 I really hope that funding of some sorts heads this way. You always hear about clubs not being able to field teams etc and it is a real worry. I have no doubt that other regional areas have the same issues. I would love to see a big plan for country rugby league.
RUSTYCAGE is not on a hiding to nothing @Tigerboy: I disagree very strongly with you and I support Rusty just as strongly.
When I viewed the after game interview with Madge, I felt he looked very uncomfortable answering questions re Farah. And he even admitted during the interview he wished he hadn’t asked Farah to ‘bring his gear along just in case’.
What was Madge’s thinking behind sending Farah into battle when the war had already been won and lost? just ridiculous. Madge knew Farah wasn’t fit to play, so why did he take Chris Lawrence off and send Farah on?
Wests Tigers will be better off not having a disruptive personality like Farah around anymore.
The game was over, it would not matter 2 hoots who stayed on and who came off. Your just peeved that Farah replaced Lawrence like I said keeping Lawrence on would have meant diddly squat. Get over it and let Farah enjoy the moment the crowd was there to see the Tigers win and say goodbye to Farah, sadly they could only accomplish one of the two.
Lets hope Lawrence gets the same opportunity next year.
