Latrell Mitchell planning early retirement

Sydney Roosters superstar centre Latrell Mitchell has recently spoken to Faifax media about his longterm plans in Rugby League and has made a surprising statement.

The NSW representative said the following:

“I’ll give myself eight years until I’m 30 and then see where I’m at. Cooper (Cronk) has got the mental capacity to keep going that long. I couldn’t do it.”

This is definitely a unique plan the 22 year old has. Most big name players like himself generally play until around the 33 to 35 mark, with a career spanning around 12-15 years.

However, we mustn’t forget that Mitchell debuted at 18 in 2016, meaning in 8 years he will be playing in his 12th season, which as previously mentioned, is around the time most big players in the modern era hang up their boots.
