They’ve been very quiet on this Souths and while I hate to admit it i think they have lured him over. It would be painful to see him wear red & green.
      Any evidence or just normal Chookpen paranoia lol?

      • We have a core group of players who would bleed Red, White and Blue if you cut them in half. Losing Latrell who IMO isn't one of them won't be the be all and end all of our chances for next season.
        I suppose the big question is if he goes now, do we get some kind of replacement in time for next season. If it was me personally, I would be sounding out Wighton because of his defensive capabilities and room for improvement in attack.

          Gotta be Souths. As if he'd go to the Dogs, Parra or Newcastle.

            I know someone who works in Souths care and usually is spot on. I’ve also been told frizell is a big chance of going over to bunnies too. But the one I keep hearing is Fifita will be with us.

            • Also, if anyone uses Instagram- just look at fox leagues last post about him and that will explain the type of head Mitchell has atm. He is feeding into the trolls and fighting back. Someone commented saying “ He isn’t worth the money he still needs to prove himself “ with Mitchell replying “ 2 comps what more do I need to prove ? “

              • If Latrell is the Ferrari then Luke Keary is the pair of keys

                he won’t be the same if he leaves us

                • Tedesco
                  Tupou
                  Manu
                  Morris
                  Hall

                  or

                  Tedesco
                  Tupou
                  Manu
                  B. Smith
                  Morris

                  We are covered next year and still have a deadly backline, smart business by the Roosters.
                  Offered him what we thought he was worth and to be able to still keep others off contract, he didn't like that offer.
                  Roosters move on and lock up other talent with that money.

                    Just a comment like that alone would have me concerned about signing him from another club's perspective. I hate to say it, but I actually think he could only likely improve if he went to Souths.
                    We saw how Tedesco and Crichton had to adapt to our style and it didn't come overnight. I reckon Latrell may get a bit more freedom to play under Wayne and maybe that will suit him better.
                    At a club like the Tigers or Knights, you could see him just coasting for a few years and fit the highlights into a 5 minute youtube video.

                      He can play footy .

                        He’ll play FB over there. Walker is looking likely to go.. let’s see how he fares at FB

                          Hall just dislocated his knee playing for England on the weekend, there is a chance he will need corrective surgery and a stint on the sidelines.

                          • Yeah he'll go well at Souths. It's a good fit. Souths are professional and successful and Bennet feels like the kind of guy who could get him on track.

                            Latrell is exceptionally talented and his best is ahead of him. Best natural talent I've ever seen.

                              A comment like that youd think he was playing like Jarred Hayne during the 2009 run into the finals...not a guy who went missing 70% of the time... i see a big reality check in the future for Lats sadly.

                                He may have the best car but does he have the best driver driving it?
