    Both have a big future ahead of them. But I think Trbojevic will be the better player. But even then I'll take Munster over both of them

    Munster is terrific but he's also two years older than Trbojevic and almost 3 years older than Mitchell, plus he has the added advantage of being in that Melbourne system with smith and Cronk

    Turbo, but that's splitting hairs.

    Who's injured less will be the deciding factor.

    Tom T has a full year on Latrell. Wait two more years to see Latrell's best.

    Having said that, I wouldn't swap Latrell for anyone, even now.

    What are we choosing them for?

    Tallest, I'd go Tommy Turbo.

    Heaviest, I'd go Latrell.

    Latrell's had a pretty good year considering the clusterfck he came into. A lot of mistakes by watching him you can see that he's going to be brilliant.

    I don't know about TT, I watch him I think he's ok but not to the extent of the wraps he gets. I don't think I've seen him do anything of note against a top team. Not a criticism as I think for his age he's great, but with how some in the media talk him up its like he's already an immortal.

    Mitchell just.


    Can't wait for the day to see them both run out in a Blues jersey though.

    Tom Trbojevic, definitely. Looks like he'll be competing with Teddy for the NSW fullback spot in years to come.

    I don't get the hype of Latrell Mitchell. Strong runner of the football but constantly seems to stunt the attack and take the wrong option in the 20m zone. Although to be fair I haven't really watched the last 4-5 Roosters games...

    Voted for Mitchell but it's a real tough call.

    Mitchell... Just

    IMO Trbojevic has a higher floor but Mitchell has the higher ceiling
    Really tight call but id go Mitchell narrowly because i think if everything goes right, Mitchell would be the better player
