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.
