How much are they paying him? Because it says in the paper they only offered 800k and deal in limbo.

He posted on Instagram a ''thank you Roosters for everything you have done for me and my family'' message.

With all the Burgesses gone this year it must have freed up a fair bit. It has been reported amounts between $600k - $1.3m. I guess if you have a creative enough accountant the numbers dont mean a lot.

Latrell Mitchell has confirmed he is leaving the Roosters but stopped short of confirming he had joined South Sydney after it was reported on Friday he will play for the Rabbitohs in 2020.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Mitchell — who has spent much of the off-season in rugby league limbo — has “agreed to terms” with the Rabbitohs and may be at pre-season training as early as Monday.

The development comes after it was revealed this week Mitchell was scheduled to meet Souths coach Wayne Bennett to facilitate a move to the Roosters’ fiercest rivals.

Fox Sports reports Mitchell has agreed to a deal with Souths worth $600,000-a-season for two years, with the Roosters to kick in an extra $120,000. It represents a significant pay cut compared to what he would have earned had he remained at Bondi — where the Kangaroos back was offered a multi-year deal worth $800,000 a season.

Mitchell took to Instagram to update people on his situation.

“Firstly I want to thank @sydneyroosters for everything they have done for me and my family,” Mitchell wrote.

“I cannot describe the way I feel right now but just wanted to let everyone know involved in my career through my stint here, I am so very grateful for you all.

“To the fans, thank you! Wouldn’t be a game without you.

“Humbled to be able to play with such a rich history club didn’t think as a Country boy I’d be able to transition to the city but roosters made that possible.

“To the boys!! I love yas. Playing along side of you all was something I’ll hold close to my heart.

“Nothing has been made official as of yet. But my stay at the Roosters has come to an end. On to the next chapter wherever that may be.”

Got a shock when I read that his latest manager is Matt Rose. The big fat fellow who played for Manly. Shocked Had to refresh memory - that is George.

If he's ended up on 720k he is mad and so is his manager - what has this interminable saga been about? It makes no sense.

Without details we have no idea of 3rd party arrangements or a huge backended deal or a $400k job with The Gladiator as an indigenous cultural fire control officer on his estate.

Matt Rose. the brother of former Manly front rower is Mitchell's new manager.

Latrell's brother who puts George to shame at 150kg has I believe signed for a Manly feeder club.

I am sure there are a lot of mis-truths or shortages of facts around the whole thing though which will clarify as signatures are formalised.

With Roberts and Mitchell in the backline and Johnson and Gagai possibly off to Titans in a swap for Arrow the Rabbits will be the jekyl and hyde team of 2020.

Mitchell and Roberts show up once every five matches, and if they lose Gagai and Johnson they had better hope the young players in the group come on quickly.

Without the grunt of the Burgess's up front they will be relying heavily on Cook to get the going forward off quick play the balls, so a lot of things need to fall into place for the Rabbits to make the top four!

Sorry PT ... just saw the confirmation that he has signed with the Bunnies.

I hadn't really been paying too much attention, but this explains why you had been so out of sorts of late ... that and the fact that the Dems are such an anchor around your neck of course!Cry.
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

I have to bite Shrunk.

If the Rabbits win the competition, in the next ten years, I will never ever ever post in the village ever again!

Au contraire mon petit falafel. 

Latrell is about to implode. Robbo and the Roosters carried him for 4 years to 2 Premierships and State of Origin wins, letting him go walkabout when he was a bit fragile, buying a fill-in fullback for him when he wasn't coping, and this is the gratitude he shows. 

He is the Gladiators problem now. Good luck if the Bunnies can get him on track but they have their work cut out. Thumbs Up

because if mitchell doesn't lose the 30kg he's put on, Bennett will have to put him in the front row! He's as fat as a fool and is not keen on tackling. Same with Roberts - good attacking teams will target this pair and run straight through them.

Think Latrells brothers are props. Think a few visionaries on here saw potential issues with him a few years back !
