Mitchell has faced a torrent of criticism in recent weeks due to inconsistent form which saw him left out of the New South Wales side for game two of State of Origin. Raring to go: Latrell Mitchell has been the subject of a lot of speculation but Friday night looms as a chance to do his talking on the field.

South Sydney star Cody Walker has branded constant speculation over Latrell Mitchell's future as "unfair and unwarranted" during a visit to Wagga Wagga for the Yandarra Festival on Sunday.

The future of off-contract Roosters centre Mitchell has dominated NRL media over the past week after the premiers took an $800,000 offer to the 22-year-old off the table.

Mitchell was scheduled to attend the community day, and a function addressing mental health and suicide prevention at Tolland the day before, but was replaced by Walker's Rabbitohs teammate James Roberts.

"It's obviously not the ideal situation to be in but I just think the criticism that's come from it is pretty unwarranted, it's unfair and he's got every right to explore his options," Walker said of Mitchell's situation.

"He had five or six articles about him in one day, I think it's quite unfair. I texted him the other day to see if he was OK and that he's got so much support behind him that if he ever needs to talk to anyone I'm always here."

Walker, who underwent a reconstruction on his right shoulder almost two weeks ago, is also enduring the contract rumour mill. He addressed claims of a pay dispute with Souths on social media on Sunday, insisting the club hasn't even made an offer. The five-eighth is confident an agreement will be struck with the 2015 premiers.

"I put something out today on my Instagram saying I was quite disappointed with the rumours getting around, and the media saying I'd rejected an offer from Souths that I haven't even received," he said.

  South Sydney Rabbitohs sign Bronson Garlick - son of former club captain Sean - for 2020 NRL season The South Sydney Rabbitohs have signed Bronson Garlick - son of former club captain Sean - from the Canterbury Bulldogs for the 2020 NRL season.

"I love South Sydney, I want to stay there and I've got no doubt we'll come to an agreement over the next couple of months. There's no need to rush into it, I've got another year left on my contract. It's home for me and these things happen when you're off-contract, rumours start to circulate and I've got no doubt we'll get a deal sorted."

Walker expects to be fit for round one after taking the decision to get off-season surgery on his shoulder following the Prime Minister's XI match.

"I actually did it in round two this year and early on it took two or three weeks to get a lot of pain out of it. I worked really hard on my rehab and got the shoulder very strong by the end of the year," he said.

"I thought I might have been able to avoid surgery but we made a decision with the medical group and Wayne [Bennett] that it was probably a good opportunity to get the shoulder done and get it as strong as it's ever been. I didn't want to go into the season with any risks, if I did it next year I would have to go under the knife anyway, so best to get it done now while I have time to recover and be back for round one."

This was the second year Walker has attended the Yandarra Festival, which means 'coming together' in Wiradjuri. He said it's vital high profile Indigenous players give youngsters an up close example of what they can achieve through hard work.

"I came here last year and was pretty excited to come back out," he said. "We were at Tolland on Saturday and to see the kids' faces light up when they see me and Jimmy and the AFL boys, it's a great feeling to have.

"It's why we do what we do, to inspire the younger generation to follow their dream and have a crack. I grew up in a small country town (Casino) populated by Indigenous people and what we faced as young kids, that's what we're facing now.

"We reiterate we went through the struggles they are right now and made the right choices to get where we are. We can send the message that if we got through it, they can."
