Is Latrell Mitchell Better Off In The Centres? Wendell Sailor Explains How It Will Work

Wendell Sailor gave his take on the whispers surrounding South Sydney Rabbitohs star Latrell Mitchell moving from fullback for a return to the centres.


Speaking on The Rush Hour with Gus, Jude & Wendell, Sailor gave his opinion after Mitchell found himself under fire throughout the back-half of the season.

The Rabbitohs dropped from first place after 11 rounds to missing out on the finals altogether.

Current media reports state that incoming Canberra Raiders star Jack Wighton might be the man to don the number one jersey in 2024.

Mitchell would slot back into the centres like he did for Sydney Roosters and when he features in representative footy for NSW & Australia.

“It’s one of the options they do have as they have someone like Jack Wighton,” said Sailor.

“Latrell can just float in and around the game.

“I know there’s a knock on Latrell for his fitness and he doesn’t get as involved as he should.

“If he plays in the centres, he can come in and out of the game.

“We saw what he could do at the Roosters.”
