Latrell Mitchell's Classy Text Messages To His Replacement Fullback

Latrell Mitchell's Classy Text Messages To His Replacement Fullback

All class from Latrell Mitchell.

The injured South Sydney Rabbitohs fullback will be watching his side's preliminary finals clash against the Penrith Panthers from the sideline.

But if you thought that was going to stop him from having an impact on the rest of the team, you'd be wrong.

A nasty hamstring injury back in round 16 subsequently ended Mitchell's NRL season.

But even though he hasn't been walking out with the rest of the Bunnies team come game-day, he has continued to be a central figure at the club.

Despite still being a relatively fresh face at Souths following his move from the Sydney Roosters, Mitchell has been sending supportive text messages to every player on the team ahead of their games.

And while he's far from a 'senior' member of the playing squad, the 23-year-old is already proving that he possesses the sort of leadership qualities often seen on the shoulders of NRL veterans.

"Latrell messaged me the other night, and he usually messages me after every game giving me tips," replacement fullback Corey Allan, told Wide World of Sport.

"He is always helping us to be at our best considering he has won two premierships, so he knows what it is like to be in the finals, and he knows how to win.

"He is such a good bloke, and everyone loves him. To hear from Latrell all the time is really helping me and is giving me confidence as well.

"The last time he contacted me he was fixing a fence on his farm, but he hasn't forgotten about us."

The Bunnies will now go toe-to-toe with minor premiers the Panthers at ANZ Stadium this Saturday evening (AEDT), although they'll have to do so without their two-time Premiership-winning superstar.

That being said, judging by the way they're playing at the moment this game is shaping up to be one of the most competitive we've seen all season - although Penrith remain the bookies' favourite.
