    Locking down Latrell

    Uncle Nick needs to move quick on this now. Get it done nice and early, as the LOL would love nothing more than to jag his signature. I know Lats has said in the past that he wants to remain a Rooster, but money talks.....

    Thoughts?

    I hear what you're saying.

    We at the roosters have very few admirers amongst other fans, and almost none in the media. They all love and wish for us to fail and suffer when we are successful - unfortunately for them, they've had to do a lot of suffering in recent years.

    Australians are an envious bunch and can't stand others' success.

    That's why this Latrell bashing witch hunt has had so much legs. "Out of form" for a few weeks - no mention of no Keary and Cronk in our halves to feed him the ball. No mention of zero service in SOO by the hopeless halves.

    It would never have happened to Inglis, who had plenty of shithouse games. He was a koala bear. Just like Cleary.

    He wouldn't be the first player to not be interested in negotiating his next deal during the playing season, especially when he has another year to go yet on his current contract. He has just been through the self-confessed distraction of a messy manager change, I suspect the last thing he wants now is to jump straight into contract negotiations which could potentially cause further distractions. I don't think you can read too much into that comment, not in the context of his other statements about being a one club player and the East being his home.

    True that! Letís see what comes of it. Personally I think he will stay on

    im just advising caution re latrell, ill give him a discount for his age and all, but im seeing a lot of gi, hayne type player who can excite and disappoint in equal measure. is he a matchwinner ? undoubtedly , no dispute, my concern is how often that will be. but i do have full trust in this club to make the correct decision, whichever way it lands, latrell will not find a better club to cater to his needs then this one. if he wants away, good luck , he is indeed a raare talent.

    lattell has owned him for quite a while now. If Chambers get a psychological victory from takling Latrell while slipping then good luck to him as heís probably in for a mental breakdown next time they play.

    Mitchell wasn't at his best but the criticism has been way over the top, same as the bashing Walker has copped. Why hasn't the blow torch been placed on the NSW forward pack who got absolutely dominated in the second half and failed to lay any sort of platform for their halves and outside backs? Aside from Klemmer and to a lesser extent Vaughan in his first stint, NSW had nobody willing to roll their sleeves up and take on the Qld pack. I would have had another big bopper on the bench instead of Gus if I was picking the team, even if it was someone like Tariq Sims. It was massive ask picking Haas and expecting him to lead the line in his 11th top grade game and the kid just wasn't up to it. No doubt he will be our next Glenn Lazarus but so much pressure for someone so inexperienced. Freddie, Brandy and Buderus need to man up and admit they got the selections and bench rotation wrong instead of throwing their players under the bus

    As far as SOO goes, Addo Carr and Walker weíre diabolical in defence which left Mitchell stranded and lost at times.
    Qld woke up at halftime and realised that unless they slow us down in the ruck, Cook and JT were going to shred them apart, and slow us down they did. 3-4 in a tackle, flopping on tackles players etc... thatís why our forwards were dominated in the second half and our backs couldnít do a thing.
    I definitely noticed that - often the Qld third tackler would not only flop on to the other 2 after tackle was completed (worth a penalty alone), but would then proceed to roll over the top of the other 2 tacklers. Quite farcical but it happens every year.

He could turn up blindfolded and still find the line but letís face it, he was up against 3-4 other brothers who were well below par.

    Fittler is entitled to have his opinion on Latrell, but should not have bought the Roosters into it in any way shape or form.

    Sad thing is Fittler is using Latrell as a scapegoat for his own selection shocker in placing defensively challenged Walker inside Latrell. Walker should never have been in the side in the first place. His game is just not suited to Origin.

    And I notice there was no mention in public of the underwhelming performance of the golden boy No. 7. No, instead we have the insistence that he performed very well. Fittler, Gould, Brandy & co have all got his back, and I have no doubt he will be there for the rest of the series, going through the motions and delivering very little.

    Those looking for Latrell for being consistent from week to week will be waiting a long time and ultimately disappointed. Since he came into grade he has been all over the place from week to week - focused in games for 80 minutes one week, 20 minutes the next, 60 minutes the next. That's Latrell. I suspect Trent and the Chooks know that and accept it for what it is, given his worst is better than many others' best.

    What Latrell and his manager do need to be careful with is his future. If he decides to leave the Chooks for big money and ends up at a club that doesn't understand him or look out for him like he's been used to, he may come crashing down in a big heap. Latrell has always been high maintenance, and the Chooks have bent over backwards to accommodate him. Another club may not be so flexible.

    But it I hear ya - I reckon this might be where some of Freddyís anger is stemming: if Walker and co were more focussed, perhaps the occasion wouldnít have got to them. Which has a smidge of merit, but even then itís a cop-out as in the end it was Freddy and his nepotistic ways that had us ill-equipped to play footy. Not 1 professional coach in his entourage.
