If we can’t get Mitchell, I wouldn’t really want Valentine Holmes as a second choice.
Rather throw the money at two of these three: Frizell, JWH, JAC.
But I do really want Mitchell
He is meeting the the Cows and JT , the JT factor could be very influential in his decision.
Altho they both come from an indigenous back ground which would mean a lot to Mitchel it would also take him a very long way away from his roots at Taree which I believe would be a negative for his family life.
the Tigers play would be to take our country game to Taree and have a week up there leading up to it.
I think we are locked in to Tamworth aren’t we? And I doubt Taree has an NRL standard stadium, it’s not that big a place.
If LM is as keen on frequently visiting his mob in Taree as he seems to be, Townsville would have to be one of his worst options. And I can’t imagine the Cowboys having the money to trump our offer. So if the money and the family/home town are both in our favour, I don’t believe he’s going to the Cowboys.
