    The best part of that SMH article was his father talking about the support from Robbo and Nick. He deserves the backing of all us supporters too for just being a genuine quality person let alone for what he has done as a player.

      He has 30,000 reasons to want to play again. Never smart to cut off your nose to spite your face.

        It's great news for us v Tigers plus we get Keary back as well.

          If Fittler had picked a number 6 that could actually pass him the ball and create opportunities instead of picking Flop Walker, it would been different.

            Paul Kent: How are you going to rotate your bench in game 2?
            Freddy: Our tactics were right, If Latrell goes down the sideline and kicks the ball back inside we had 3 men unmarked we win the game

            Seriously....

            How about if Jack Wighton ices the 2 on 1 situation 10 metres out instead of setting up a Qld try. You want to talk about sliding door moments... latrell has been the ultimate scapegoat for NSW.

              Never smart to throw the baby out with the bath water either.

              Two can play at this cliche game!

                Now, now... don't go blaming Wighton. He was just playing out of position. He'll be fine in the centres after Mark Gasnier introduces him to this role.

                  One of my mates said he heard Fittler being interviewed after the game and he was glowing in his praise of Wighton. For the life of me, I can't understand why. I rate Jack Wighton but didn't think he really came up with too many positives out there. It reminds me of the Tyrone Peachy situation last year. Fittler had a love affair going with him at the the time and I remember him saying when Roberst got binned in Game 2 that he had to get Peachy out there because he felt safer when he was on the field. It was a really strange comment as its not like Peachy is a particularly great defender.

                    I heard freddy say that and I still can't believe the stupidity of his comments. He has managed to raise stupidity to a new level since the siren went on origin 1.

                      How smug and smarmy did Fittler look - pains me to say it, but I'm hoping a NSW loss on Sunday night will wipe that smirk of his face. Couldn't believe he took yet another cheap shot at Latrell. I haven't thought much of the bloke since 09 but my estimation of him is getting lower by the day. He is morphing into a clone of his fwit mentor Gould.

                        Something stinks. And it doesn't bode well for NSW and the rest of the series. Latrells copping rep pearcey level hate for 1 game!

                          Wow!!!! I can't believe it has all blown up like this. QLD are the only ones that are going to benefit from this. I mean Gus has NFI. He IMO is the one to blame for starting the media blow up after SOO1.

                          I agree Freddie and his fellow selectors have made a massive mistake by not choosing Latrell. He is the best centre in the world and should be there.... But really Latrell (and I'm sure most of you would agree) hasn't been playing up to his usual high standards. Let's not forget it's not the first time a coach has dropped Latrell. Remember when Robbo pulled him and then dropped him for a couple of weeks after that Brisbane game in 2017.

                          I'm not standing up for Freddie but no one player is bigger than the game. If Latrell didn't meet the team expectations (and let's face it he didn't have a good game in SOO1) then he shouldn't have his place guaranteed necessarily. After all, Walker who had a worse game than Latrell was dropped as well.

                          Someone like Robbo needs to be in Latrell's ear telling him not to throw away his origin career, but to take Freddie's advise, find his smile back and start playing some great f*#kin football again.

                            My friend keeps saying "Cheer up mate it could be worse. You could be stuck underground in a hole full of water". I know he means well.

                              Great Roosters player and all and thanks to him for what he did for us but he could not manage a Chook raffle. Complete idiot.
                              Seeing him at Burgess Christmas Day lunch was an eyebrow raiser. Now this past week, seeing as a boss who will throw you under the bus while playing favourites. He's gone down from my previous estimation.

                                This will test Latrell's character. Great players cop it on the chin and then come back a better person and player. If Latrell is going to have a hissy fit over this then I think it proves he is not mentally tough enough to play origin at the moment. Maybe Fittler know's a bit more than what has been reported. Of course, some of the garbage in the media is not helping.
