    No worse than signing players to huge back ended contracts only to have them conveniently retire.

    Souths will not have the money to sign Latrell Mitchell now that they have invested so much in Jimmy the Jet.

    Wayne was lucky with Roberts in Brisbane the media was happy to go easy on his off field dramas. Sydney media is a different beast, jimmy may have to clean up his act for real now.

    Otherwise it’s a handy signing for Souths, onboard the red carpet ride they are receiving he will be in the origin picture in no time.

    Duh . . . not being able to sign whoever you want because you spent too much on another player.

    The important news is that Jimmy the Jet's move to Souths will have a marginal impact on Souths over the coming years, while Latrell's retention will keep the Roosters strong for most of the next decade.

    Please do not associate the roosters with that green and red garbage.

    i don’t know where that information is from, maybe when he was in under 8s. He grew up in La Perouse, played for La Perouse United and went to Matraville High, before becoming coming up through Souths HM and SG Ball

    Nothing you say is important, only boring. Your Roosters shtick has worn thin.

    Agree, Latrell to Brisbane seems the most likely outcome.

    It’s a zero risk signing because if it goes bad I’m sure they can retire him medically and give him a time mentoring fellow inmates at Long Bay

    Dumb move. I thought they had enough cap space to make a play for Latrell. He is at least twice the player of Roberts.
