The Sydney Roosters have announced the re-signing of Latrell Mitchell, Joseph Manu and Nat Butcher, keeping them at the club until at least the end of 2020.

The trio has progressed through the Roosters lower grades, with Mitchell and Manu members of the Roosters’ 2014 SG Ball Premiership-winning side. Together with Butcher, Manu was also a member of the Roosters’ 2016 National Youth Competition (NYC) Premiership-winning side.

Since making his NRL debut with the Roosters in 2016, 20-year-old Mitchell has scored 29 tries in 48 appearances.

“I’m very proud to represent the Roosters. The Club means a lot to me, and I’m learning so much from Robbo, the coaches and senior players around me, so I’m glad that I’ll continue to be part of the team here,” said Mitchell.

Like Mitchell, 21-year-old Manu, who has made 20 appearances in the top grade since making his NRL debut in 2016, was pleased to re-commit to the Club.

“I’ve been with the Roosters since I was 17, and I love it here. We’re a tight group and I’m looking forward to continuing to work hard with Robbo and my teammates to keep improving my game,” said Manu.

Butcher, who captained the Roosters 2016 NYC side to its maiden Premiership and has played three NRL games to date, also spoke about how much he was looking forward to continuing his development at the Roosters.

“I’m really happy to have re-signed with the Roosters. I know there’s a lot of improvement in me, and I’m focussed on continuing my development and hopefully securing my opportunity to play some good football for the Club,” said Butcher.

  1. Stars ha ha
    Mitchell is so overrated, only gets involved and has a dig when he feels up to it..
    Manu is solid but be nothing more then a ( prob get a run most weeks) centre..

    • Not what you said a couple of weeks ago Crowey3301. Oh we missed out on Roger Tuivasa-$hreck but Souths can still buy a comp starting with Latrell Mitchell.

    • Rubbish, Mitchell is on a reported $270k and will no doubt be upgraded to at least $400 or even $500k for next season and beyond!

  2. Perhaps I’m just too dry, but that was sarcasm. If Mitchell is only on $270k then I’d be staggered. Ponga is on $800k for reference.

      • Very cranky… it’s ok I forgive you, I see that was a very early comment and there’s no way rusty was up that early to meet yet for your latte…
        Re comment after 9 and I’m sure you’ll be happier

  3. By the end of this season every man and their dog would of been trying to sign them. Smart move Roosters.

    • What you have just said, is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your soul.

      • Deeznuts what are you on about? Did you accidently post that stupid reply on the wrong website? What room are you in? Is it a padded cell? Perhaps shock treatment is the only solution for you deeznuts.

        By the way last years semi final against Brisbane Robert James sure couldn’t handle Latrell Mitchell.

        • What?? Where am I ??

          Also thats why after last years semi final Robert James was never heard from again.

  4. Latrell Mitchell will play for NSW & Australia in the very near future. Along with Manu the Roosters have the best young centre’s in the comp.
