Good Win guys, but it was distressing to see Mitchell in the rooms after the game. Bennet was asked many times what the problem was with him. I was very impressed in his replies
I hope Mitchell gets over whatever the issue is, he deserves peace in his life

It was, I know Wayne didn't do it for this reason but his players will run through walls for him now.

I got a bit annoyed with the fox sports panel after the match. They mixed up the version of events to blame Wayne.

So Latrell is going great yet, the media still try to bring him down. I'm quite pissed off with that to be honest. His high shot was nothing more than a slap around the head as both players were slipping, it was accidental. In regards to his emotional state after the game, we should respect his privacy and give him space. There are rumours that his Nan passed away a couple of days ago so that could explain it.

The way Parker carried on about it on the panel was very over the top and dramatic, if it was him in Latrels shoes I’m sure he would have been thankful for Bennett’s response

I disagree that there was nothing in Fusitua incident.
While not intentional, it was a careless arm stuck out that made contact with the head of a player who then left the game and didn't return.
There was no genuine attempt to tackle Fusitua and while the slip was the main cause for direct contact to the head, i believe that it should be the responsibility of the defender to avoid head high contact.
A penalty would've been a fair outcome imo.

Latrell has no case to answer for that high shot, all clear from the Match Review Committee so welcome news.

Weedler’s column in the Sun Herald this morning.

BUNNIES HOPPING MAD

Fox Sports’ decision to show Latrell Mitchell dressing-room tears has left the Rabbitohs fuming and they have let the NRL know.

Souths boss Blake Solly has fired off an email to the NRL questioning the decision to air the footage. More than that, Souths have challenged the NRL’s and the broadcasters’ rights to show the vision. In the contract the broadcasters “must not capture injured players, players receiving treatment or nudity” . Souths will argue that players’ mental health should fall into the injured category.

Souths players wore black armbands last week and it was not really noticed. It related to a very difficult family issue that devastated the family of former Souths player Buddy Gordon and his wife and that has had an impact on the entire playing group.

Mitchell has also experienced some personal loss in recent times.

The cameras should be banned in the rooms before and after the match as well as the proposed interview with the players at half time.
It was a disgrace shoeing Mitchell after the game and what a disgrace the Fox team going on and on about it.
