Player movements and rumours

    Signing Mitchell is an absolute roll of the dice. Would never pay more than 750ish for him depending on the club.

    Mundine in Mitchell's ear. Fantastic.
  3. Magic AJ Parker

    Matt Rose seems to be the one who is stirring shit up.

    He also represents Cody Walker who has supposedly priced himself out of a contract with Souths. And Jack Wighton who is apparently asking for 900k+.

    You can't trust most aboriginals with a big money long term deal.

    Eels grab Matterson. Not a fan of his or how he has gone about his contract stuff but a gun signing talent wise.
  6. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    I'm probably the worlds biggest Rooster critic, but I don't mind it. If they didn't and it drags on for another few weeks fans would be asking why no statements been made.

    Blake Green has been linked with the Broncos. Would be a perfect fit IMO.
  8. Paddy P Orr

    Rumour has it we are considering him since the Holmes thing hasn't actually gone through yet. I'd take Mitchell since we are in more need for a centre than a fullback.

    David Fifita arrested in Bali lol

    Should drop his price for us a little
  10. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    He wants to play fullback and the club want to sign him as a fullback.
  11. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    Latrell would be a mad fullback now I reckon. He's far more confident as a player at this level than he was when he was getting a gig there a few years back. Plus it should force him to get involved as a runner rather than him being in the halves.
  12. Cribbage RG Cribb

    He's not fit enough for it IMO, he'd have to really want it and put in a big offseason. Maybe he does but I kinda doubt it.
  13. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    Inglis managed Tbh.
  14. Magic AJ Parker

    They're not actually the same bloke..

    If Latrell makes a big million dollar move to play fullback at a smaller club I reckon he'll be playing for Old Bar at 130kgs within 4 years.

    Yeah when he was fitter and the game was a bit different. We saw lots of games over the last few years of his career with either AJ or Cody at fullback with him at 6 or centre.

    Latrell could definitely do it well if he wanted to be I doubt his work ethic to get in good nick for it, and I guess his attitude as well. "Nah I can be a 105kg fullback, just watch me"

    Latrell has more chance of being a gun 6 than a gun 1 IMO, and even that would require a pretty traditional and dominant 7.

    He's an out and out centre. There's no law against paying a centre a mil per season. Play with traditional halves and get him the ball.

    Gawd, in 10 years from now we'll have second rowers who want to play fullback.
  18. Lukic L Popovic

    I reckon he could work for us if he rotated with Thompson/Mbye for a few sets assuming theyre left wing/centre.

    Kind of like how the Roosters did with Minichiello and RTs years ago.

    I'd be more inclined to do it the other way - name Latrell at centre and play him mostly there but let him swap with the fullback (or even just play as a second one) inside the opposition 30 at times. Kind of like how Queensland used Inglis for a couple of years, and how Gold Coast tried to use Hayne.

    That'd get more out of him and go closer to justifying the price tag without just burning him out. It might not satisfy his ego though if other clubs are offering him the actual #1 jersey.

    I don't think he will leave the Roosters unless he's being offered fullback or 6 elsewhere.
