    Why not? Great club, massive & passionate fan base, and a Premiership winning coach.

    He won’t get a blues jumper back whilst Freddy the Rooster is coach. Uncle Nick will see to that

    market value?

    Any idea of his current contract value with the used car salesman?

    Who’ve won the same of Premierships as Souths in the past 45 years, in less then half the time I might add

    Latrell would've been much more accepted in general if he signed with the Tigers. Nobody really dislikes the Tigers they're a good club with a good fanbase. Latrell playing at his best would probably take them into the 8.

    Instead he's signed with the Rabbitohs who almost everyone hates, a disgusting fanbase filled with mainly idiots (No disrespect to any of the Souths fans here. Most of you are alright) and gets the hate of the Roosters fans for turning his back on the club and signing with their main rival.

    I guess it depends on whether or not you like a challenge.

    The Tigers are the Masters of the 9th placed finish. But Latrell could have turned them into a top 4 contender if he really hit his straps at fullback.

    And there'd be nothing better than being the champion player on a team playing in front of 20k passionate fans at a packed out Leichardt on a Sunday afternoon.

    Instead he chose the easy option and gets to play in front of 65k empty seats at ANZ.

    This whole saga (Souths, Burgess,arrow, Mitchell) still doesn’t pass the sniff test to me. Shonky to the core.

    * expedited medical retirement with zero salary cap ramifications
    * contracted marquee player from minnow club manoeuvred into coming year early
    * cash payment to player manager to ensure Souths get Mitchell. Surely that’s an inducement that is counted on the cap

    the whole thing reeks of Greenberg’s duplicity, double standards and favouritism to certain clubs

    No club should get away with what Souths have.

    Haha.

    The Roosters are underestimated every year. We will find a new Latrell Mitchell quite quickly, Flanagan will suddenly become the second coming of Andrew Johns and you + your Souffs mates will be blabbering on about how the Roosters are over the cap again in July.

    Also, if the Roosters won another 20 grand finals they would be way over the amount that Souths have achieved. You Souths fans aren't great on the old mathematics I see :(

    and iran once ruled the world, hows that working out for them atm?

    yes we obvioulsy have buckleys chance of winning the comp, and souths do have a better chance then us. however ill be pretty surprised if a forward pack that has bailey sironen and mark nicols as realistic starting options is there come business time.

    You really believe that? I have no doubts that Souths have offered him a substantial sum following next seasons one year deal. No-one signs a one year deal for less money let alone a top payer that clubs are fighting for.

    Mind you we may yet end up with Jai this season but I actually hope not for the Titans sake

    Yep, our pack will be our weakness without Sam & Sutto. Impossible to replace but that will be balanced by a cracking good backline.

    Tom B will have his best season yet and Knight, Tatola, Nicholls will rotate as other props. Amone will improve greatly as well

    throw in SOO players Murray & Lowe into the back row along with Su’A who will be much better under a full pre season

    oh, and dont forget the Australian hooker:cool::sunglasses:

    1. Why does everybody talk about the Sam Burgess medical retirement when Ben Matulino and Matt Gillett received the exact same treatment?
    2. A player getting released a year early from his contract after he’s signed for another club is suspicious? That literally happens all the time.
    3. There were rumours of the roosters doing the exact same thing earlier in the year to try and keep Latrell but I guess that’s okay.

    Cool agenda though.

    The Roosters are the real winners out of this. They don’t have this hanging over their head for the season.

    It’ll be good at first for Souths but Latrell’s shit attitude will shine through eventually.

    Like your optimism, be prepared to be disappointed again this year. And following year. And the year after.
