The Canterbury Bulldogs are considering placing an offer in front of Sydney Rooster Latrell Mitchell, which would make him one of the highest paid players in the NRL.

While Fox Sports (10-years, $11 million) and the Sydney Morning Herald (five-years, $5 million) are reporting different deals in length, both believe Mitchell would be making at least $1 million a season if he moved to Belmore.

Mitchell is currently contracted to the Roosters until the end of 2020, meaning rival clubs can officially offer the young star a deal on November 1.

The 22-year-old is currently earning $450,000 this season according to the Herald, with the Dogs’ offer set to double that.

Mitchell has been at the centre of NRL news over the past month, after strong form for the Roosters before a poor Origin I saw him left out of the Blues’ squad for Game Two in Perth.


  1. I’m not comfortable with this if true.

    ok so we need a marquee signing to build our club around – I get that but is Latrell the man (a centre)
    Wouldn’t you think the million dollars would be better going to a spine player? Pong, Munster, even a Cook or Fifita (cringe). I’d even go for a few mid range players to build a club around. lets say Xerri, Cotric Papenhausen, Jerome Hughes, I know majority are contracted but we need value for money to build a squad. We signed Foran (even though he is playing well with effort) for a million and we are about to do the same mistake again. Could this be a play for the board to be re-elected in the Feb 2020 elections?

    Why not face the hard issues head on performance on the field and start with the coach and his team selections? Then find out why the players are not performing. It’s hard to se Napa with a broken wrist risk season ending injury in origin rather thatn helping the club that pays him get out of this hole

  2. I hear Bennett stepped off the plane at Heathrow on his way to meeting Luke Thompson and looked down and saw what he thought was his shadow.
    Low and behold it was Trent Robinson sneaking behind him.

  3. Wayne asked Wobbo why he didn’t see him on the plane and Wobbo told him 1st and 2nd class seats were sold out.

  4. So tell me idiot, who produces the juniors before they are 16yrs old so clubs like yours can steal them when the hard work is 3/4 done? Your club Russ / Woody is a disgrace and you know it.
