Latrell Mitchell looks set to become a fixture on Fox League after the superstar fullback signed a deal with the network to appear on their NRL coverage.
“Latrell is one of our great players and we’re excited about it,” the executive director of Fox Sports, Steve Crawley, told The Daily Telegraph.
Mitchell dominated the headlines in 2022 when he branded himself an ‘entertainer’, while encouraging fellow players to express themselves more and not be afraid to showcase their personality.

Now, Phil Rothfield has reported that after months of negotiations between the TV network and Mitchell’s agent Matt Rose, a deal has been struck which will see Mitchell making a name for himself within the media landscape in 2023.
It has yet to be determined which programs he will appear on, but Crawley claimed the deal was the first step in establishing a long-term relationship between Fox and Mitchell.
“He’s ready to work. We’ll look at areas where he’s most comfortable,” Crawley said.
“His interest in the business is real and we just want a relationship with him and build it over time.
“He’s different to the others. He’s got a quality that brings people in, and his comfort is growing with public speaking and being in the spotlight.
“In our business you’ve got to be modern, you’ve got to be contemporary.
“It’s great to have all the stars of yesterday but you’ve got to have the stars of today as well.”
