Latrell Talks Footy with The Betoota Advocate boys

We often associate The Betoota Advocate as the satirical news site covering every day topics that we all chuckle to because of just how relatable they are, but here they've unearthed the superstar mystique that is Latrell Mitchell.

They have the ability to cut through the BS and in this instance have raw and open conversations with one of the Rabbitohs superstars, Latrell Mitchell; not just about footy but about how he's dealt with all of the other things that comes with being a "one-name" Rugby League identity.

The interview (which was pre-recorded on the week leading into Latrell's season-ending injury during the Rabbitohs win over the Parramatta Eels), sees Latrell upbeat with a lot of aspirations for the season following a stellar run of form.

Betoota strip it back, stepping away from just footy chat and uncover the struggles Latrell endured growing up and also his mission to help inspire young Indigenous people to take their opportunities by being a role model in his community.

Mitchell goes further by describing the deep connection he has to his people and the land. He discusses how he still practices traditional ways of living and feels a sense of duty to continue to pass down these stories and practices to his children.

The boys also uncover the motivation behind Latrell making the switch "to the other side of Anzac Parade" as well as his aspiration to play alongside the likes of Cody Walker and Adam Reynolds while being mentored by a childhood hero of his, Greg Inglis.

Light-hearted and endearing, Latrell also lets them in on his thought process and preparation for a game, what makes him tick and his future goals.

A really good yarn which is definitely worth a listen. Click here to listen to the full podcast.
