Could NRL star be open to Super League switch at the end of current contract

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have announced the contract extensions of representative players Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker today.

Indigenous All Stars, Australian Kangaroos and New South Wales representative Latrell Mitchell has recommitted to the Rabbitohs until at least the end of the 2027 season, while Indigenous All Stars and New South Wales representative Cody Walker has extended his contract until at least the end of the 2025 season.

It has now been suggested that it could be the last contracts both sign in the NRL by the Sydney Morning Herald.

For Walker, this makes sense but for the young Mitchell, he will only be 30 by the end of his deal.

Mitchell is a very laid back figure and has already said that he could retire happily now after winning the World Cup.

However, if this is his last contract in the NRL, is begs the question could he be open to a Super League move at the end of it?

Time will tell, but over the next five years it is something Super League clubs should keep an eye on.

Mitchell, 25, has played 144 NRL matches since making his debut in 2016, of which 48 have been for the Rabbitohs since joining the Club for the 2020 season.

Mitchell, a proud Biripi and Wiradjuri man, has also played in four Indigenous All Stars games, nine Test matches for Australia, seven State of Origin matches for New South Wales, won two NRL premierships in 2018 and 2019 and helped guide South Sydney to an NRL Grand Final and two Preliminary Finals appearances in his three seasons at the Club.

Latrell has won two Dally M Top Points Scorer awards, was named the 2019 Dally M Centre of the Year, was awarded the NSWRL True Blue Award in 2021, and played an integral role in Australia’s World Cup victory this year. He also captained the Rabbitohs for the first time during the 2022 season and is regarded as one of the superstars of the NRL.
