    Hard to argue with but I think its more widespread than that and is symptomatic of the "struggling" clubs paying overs to attract talent int he hope of "turning it all around:"

    Dragons - Hunt
    Tigers - Reynolds, Mbye (inherited from bulldogs thanks to Cleary/Taylor)
    Bulldogs - Foran
    Titans - Ash Taylor,
    Broncos - Milford, Bird (ok not a struggling club but paying overs)
    Knights - Pearce
    Parra - Moses

    In this company and to go to any of those clubs, Latrell is $1M, but the end of the day you are paying $1M for a centre and I cant see that ending well. At those clubs on that money you need him to play fullback and I'm not sure he has the ticker or motor.

    He surely has enough talent not to do that. Surely?

    Adam O'Brien has gone to Newcastle from the Roosters and hasn't Craig Fitzgibbon gone there too? Could be a gamble for all parties really.

    If Latrell goes to Souths he has Wayne Bennett. I seem to remember him having a success or two over the years. Plus Latrells family are Souths fans and the Aboriginal community connections could inspire him.

    The Dogs with Dean Paye is a gamble , but Dean is no mug and might be able to handle him.

    Don't engage mate. They look to blame everyone else but themselves for the game (fans that is, not the players or coaching staff) and when that fails, they attack the personality of someone just because they manage to outplay/coach them!

    Do you want to keep Ponga? Talent no doubt but IMO no where near worth the money he's demanding

    Mmm ok. Good for a highlight or two but goes missing in defence more often than not. How much would you be willing to pay for him?

    Latrell got dumped from Origin. Roosters don’t put up with that shit, they want a current State of Origin center. They clearly have their eyes on one man

    Knights have rookie first grade coach and matautia bros came on as stars.

    It really depends on who wants to pay a million for a guy who goes missing in tough games.

    Lmao brilliant

    Latrell posted on his Instagram story earlier today shortly after the roosters media release. Confirms he needs to take care of his family. I think he's as good as gone which is a shame. At the same time, I think we're playing it the best way we can as a club.

    If its true that the Roosters offered him $800K, then that is exactly what he is worth, but of course he will get more at a struggling club.

    I think you’ll find Watson is on that or very close too. I know Cleary went very, very hard for him when he was Tigers coach

    Well according to Voldemort aka James Hooper, my club is now in the hot seat to sign Latrell, of course with no actual inside info just guess work. He must be sauced
