Give me a Brad Parker looking to prove people wrong over a bloke who’s been told he’s the next greg Inglis any day. Much better for team culture as well.
That’s like saying you’d rather have Brendan Elliott at FB over Tom

I read the Dogs have seen the light, and officially pulled negotiations with Trell off the table. Trell has fvcked himself by coming out publicly, telling all he is taking advice from Mundine. He will be lucky if the Titans throw him a bone.
(just as an aside. Mundine is ‘fighting’ the GCs John Wayne Parr on the 30th of this month at Titans stadium . I regularly see Parr jogging around the West Burleigh area (where his gym is) in his Thai kickboxing shorts. At 43 he looks as fit as fvck. God I hope he beats the fvck out of Mundine.)

What am I missing here ?

We have a guy being hung, drawn and quartered because he is testing his worth on the open market, much like Jai Arrow and David Fifita, but no media and public outrage over them. Ryan Matterson was woeful in how he handled his situation but he is all good too

And this is where the real scum journos come out to play, Hoopers story about him turning up in a flash car was not only bull**** but also unnecessary.

i doubt he’s worried about finding a club, or the coin he’ll make....certainly after SBW as well.

i live in Melbourne, and I don’t see the journos go after the man nearly as much as the Sydney ones do - it’s like they won’t relent until they know the player is suffering.

What would be funny is Latrell turning up in Toronto on 3 million a year.

yup...the owner of the Merc speaks out.

Nice of the media to allude that the car was Latrell's.


“It’s my car, I’ve got a building company that employs 65 people ... I lent it to him because his Hilux broke down,’’ Rahman said. ‘‘People make so many assumptions about Latrell ... like the car. The facts are straightforward.

JWP v Mundine ??? I thought Mundine retired ? Anyway used to love watching JWP do his Muay Thai thing back in the day. Pity his boxing record isn't that great.

Latrell has the hide to say no to the Rorters how dare he! I do believe he should have taken 800K and stayed.

The odds of Latrell becoming a league GREAT are much higher than him crash and burning in a year or 3 IMHO.

Hopefully someone can mentor him through life and a successful RL career...he needs it.
Geez, I’m not sure about that. Even the biting back he’s been doing on social media for much of the season doesn’t indicate good things - if he doesn’t figure out how to stop stuff like that getting under his skin - and it clearly does - I would say the chances of him chucking it all in and heading home over the next few years are fairly high. Following in his dad’s footsteps is a realistic possibility.
