Manu & Mitchell named in Holden Cup Team Of The Year

After a strong season for the Roosters Under 20s side, Latrell Mitchell and Joseph Manu have both been named in the Holden Cup Team Of The Year. 

Latrell Mitchell had an outstanding year at fullback and is progessing nicely in the Holden Cup.

Just recently turning 18, Mitchell has a bright future ahead of him, having signed a long-term contract with the club to continue his development. 

Joseph Manu also had a memorable year, with the centre scoring 22 tries in 21 appearances. 

Manu has also re-signed with the club for a further two seasons. 

Both players also had standout years at representative level, with Mitchell representing the Blues in the Under 20s State of Origin side, while Manu represented the Junior Kiwis earlier this season.
