Wests Tigers Chairman Lee Hagipantelis has joined The Rush Hour with MG and explained exactly what has gone on behind-the-scenes.
It was only a few weeks ago, three Tigers officials including coach Michael Maguire, headed to Mitchell's hometown of Taree in attempt to sign the two-time Premiership winner.
However, in the last 24 hours the club have removed their offer for the 22-year-old.
Mr. Hagipantelis explained exactly what went on.
This was part of a broader discussion around the Tigers which also included the possibility of the club signing Josh Addo-Carr; hear the full chat below.
