  • Latrell Mitchell

    Thereís a huge gap between his best game & worst game. Champions donít have that. If he wants to be a genuine superstar not just a talked up fan favourite, he needs to close that gap, fast.

    Doing nothing all night then carrying on like an idiot with 1 second to go & weíve lost wonít get him anywhere. Each game like that knocks dollars off his next contract. Hereís hoping he bounces back well next week.

    I think as soon as he is fit Billy Smith should come into the side for Latrell and our goal kickers can be SST and Teddy. Great idea.

      Latrell is 21 years old. He still has a lot of learning to do. He was playing last night in a team that in my opinion nothing fell into place for. We were dominated up front after losing SST. We didnít get the rub of the green with a ref who I thought was totally biased against us. We didnít play badly but just couldnít finish off our plays. It wasnít our night. All that said, the Broncos played their best game of the season last night against a depleted Roosters side. Against any other team they would have won by 20+. Latrell and the rest of the team will bounce back next week for sure.

        Our entire left edge didn't see much good ball at all. The Broncs prob choked out our left edge as a tactic, Cords was missing as was Tupou, our middle didn't get a roll on. I dont blame Latrell. If anything it highlights why a centre can't demand spine money.

            A centres ability to influence a game is largely dictated by the players inside them.

            We rarely had momentum last night & our structure down the left edge was non existent in Cordner's absence.

            These two key factors would lead to any centre in the world to having a quiet night. Every time he got the ball he was out numbered defenders to attackers.

            Greg Inglis was heavily criticised during his time in the centres for apparently being 'inconsistent' 'lazy' 'lacking involvement'. Reality is it's up to the players inside you to get you the ball.

            It's not like he did anything wrong last night or had a shocker, he just didn't have any stand out moments.

              hence the debate over whether you can give a centre a million per year. unlike halves, fbs, hookers, locks , their ability to influence a game is largley reliant upon others.

                No footballer should be worth a million a year. That's 250k per cruciate ligament.

                  Thereís no debate. Latrell is worth the big money. Whole team a bit off last night. After SST didnít come back we lost momentum. We were outmuscled up front. Not to mention the amount of possession the Broncos had in the first half. If the forwards donít win the battle up front very hard for the backs to perform. We will be better next week with Cords and hopefully SST back. Also our left edge was very clunky with the changes.

                    A lot of fans still don't understand the significance of players creating space for those around them by attracting defenders. These fans should be condemned to watching many replays of former slug combinations like Hastings/Guerra/Copley and Anasta/Guerra/Leilua. Only then they might fully appreciate the Keary/Cordner/Mitchell combination.

                      Point well taken. A few times there Aubo actually got in the way and the play fell apart. Not blaming him because he was injured and in my opinion maybe a bit concussed. Whether or not he was concussed only having a couple of training sessions to blend in obviously wasnít enough for the left edge to gel.
                      Big improvement next game with Cords back.

                        Right so when you earn $10 million a year you'll drive a Chery because all cars can break down?

                          Inglis and Hayne were the same, as is Shaun Johnson, and Fifita, but when they go bang, you canít stop them, these players arenít there to play consistently, they are there to win you a game that others canít. If you have to rely on these kind of players solely each game, then your team wonít be winning too many matches.

                              Supply and demand, it's just a market derived from the league businesses success. Have a look at football and NFL salaries, $1M/yr for a league player is chickenfeed.
