Young Trio Discuss Re-Signing

Fresh after re-signing with the Club, Latrell Mitchell, Joseph Manu and Nat Butcher all joined RoostersTV to discuss their past and future with the Club.

Re-signing with the Club was an easy choice for Latrell Mitchell, and doing it now means that he can shift all his focus to the 2018 season. 

"To stay at this Club is something that I’ve always wanted to do," he said.

"I’ll play some footy now and just worry about this year."

Joseph Manu has had an exciting rise to first grade, a road that has included highlights in all grades he's played in.

In 2014 Joseph Manu was a part of the grand final winning S.G. Ball side alongside Latrell Mitchell, which would follow on to a 2016 Grand Final win with the Holden Cup side. 

He was also in the Auckland Nines winning squad and took part in the ISP Grand Final last season, so is the plan now to make it to the NRL Grand Final?

"For sure, it’s not just my goal, but the whole team’s goal," he said.

"We’ve been talking about it all pre-season, now it’s time to put it into action and get it done."

There's only one plan for Nat Butcher in 2018, and that's to crack a stacked starting 17 through good consistent footy. 

"There’s a lot of depth in the squad and a lot of senior players that are in the forwards."

"I’ll be training hard and trying to play my best week in and week out at Wyong to get my spot there (in first grade)."
