After dropping the South star from this weekend’s match with the Covid 19, Latrell Mitchell will have only one game to prepare Brad Fitler to return to the state.
Mitchell has not played since a hamstring injury in the Round Five match against St. George’s Elvara, and hopes to return against the Titans this weekend.
Instead, he will spend the week in isolation.

The club said in a statement that “Rabitohas fullback Lateral Mitchell will be unavailable for selection in the 14th round because he tested positive in COVID-19 on Sunday 5 June.”
“Mitchell will not train this week because he is out of the team.”
The Rabitos have 15 rounds left against the Dragons before the New South Wales team can play two games.
Mitchell returned to Australia on Thursday after spending two weeks in the United States as part of his rehabilitation from a hamstring injury.
More to come.
