    Rugby League great Mark Geyer has some advice for Latrell Mitchell as he chases a bumper new contract worth more than $1 million a season - get more involved.

    Mitchell has baulked at a two-year extension offer from the Roosters worth $800k a season as NRL rivals the Bulldogs and the Wests Tigers prepare to swoop on the 22-year-old.

    Chooks withdraw Latrell offer


    It prompted the Roosters on Tuesday to withdraw the offer and tell the star centre he can walk if he signs with another club having alienated himself from the club’s powerbroker.

    Speaking on Triple M, Geyer said Mitchell would be enticing for any club but he needed to stamp his mark on more games.

    “At the moment he is worth $800,000 a season, on his current form,” Geyer said.

    “On his best form, when he plays he’s worth $1.1, $1.2 million. He’s got to find that happy medium.

    “He’s got to get himself more involved in games to be that $1.1 or $1 million player.

    “Imagine if Jarrod Croker from the Raiders had his ability, he’s always in the game.

    “Latrell just seems to have that uncanny knack of not trying to find his way into the game and because he’s such a good player that stands out.”

    Mitchell is off contract after next season but is currently able to negotiate with rival teams for 2021, and he has been linked with a massive $1 million per season offer from the Bulldogs.

    On Tuesday it emerged the Wests Tigers, armed with a $1.7m war chest were prepared to offer the NSW Blues and Kangaroos representative a three-year deal worth $3.3 million.

    Well if we don't get him I'd like the Tigers to. After what Tedesco did to them, this would be karma.

    Fk I hate it when every journo talks about 'war chests'

    It's such a cliche.

    What does it even mean.

    I'm not overly fussed if we don't sign Latrell, but I will be very fussed if the Tigers do... they need to realise that they belong at the bottom of the table

    Blame our current management / board. They're not capable of signing a f..king autograph

    Blake Austin - we didn't make an offer
    Aiden sezer - we didn't make an offer
    Ese ese - offered 300K py. He wanted 400K
    Mitchell - we never put in an official offer even. That's why no manager was present when George Coorey was sounding Mitchell out at his home and George got in trouble from other pissed off board members for doing that even !!!!!! What a bunch of f..king amateurs !!!!!
    Ramien - we offered 400K py. He wanted 500K+
    Brailey - we never put in an offer
    Radradra - got an introduction but no offer ever made
    Walker - no discussion or offer
    Levi - no real discussion or offer
    Koriasaou - we offered 450K py for 3 years. He wanted 500K+
    Leilaua - we offered 400K (plus Raiders paying 100K for 2020) then 500K for 2 following years. He wanted 500K (plus Raiders money) for 2020 then 600K for 2021 and 2022

    Is this supposed to be proof that we're actually being responsible with our spending? 95% of that list all sound like the best decision was made in the interests of the club.

    Mitchell's manager is working overtime through the media to push his price up. If we had 1mill/season on offer I doubt that this article would have been necessary.

    Blake "Lloyd" Austin = superleague player at best
    Sezer = wasn't needed
    Ese'ese = solid prop but by most accounts overpriced
    Mitchell = can turn it on on a dime when he wants to but goes missing, seems lazy and not worth the $$ or the hype
    Brailey would have been good
    Radradra was never coming back to the nrl
    Walker = overrated and inflated price tag
    Levi = below average first grader
    Koriasaou (or however you spell it) a player JMK will be similar to imo
    Blow job = has one solid game out of 15 and has the footy IQ of a rock

    Personally, barring brailey, I'm glad we didn't sign any of those players mentioned.


    But hey, that's just me

    Not sure how you know what we offered, but I don't know about anyone else but im glad most of them fell through. I haven't seen anything from the Club stating we offered who anything bar probably 2 of the above. They wanted more than they were worth.

    I'm disappointed in the club if we didn't even make an "official" offer to Mitchell. Ramien would be worth 500K if he gets back to his former Sharks form. Brailey would have been worth an offer. Koriasaou I would have seriously considered 500K for him as we've needed a good hooker ever since Ennis left. JMK is definitely improving though.
