An Olympic silver medallist with Great Britain in rugby sevens at the 2016 Rio Olympics, the first of his two Olympic campaigns.
Noted for his footwork, speed, balance and try-scoring which netted him 135 tries for England over his distinguished career in World Rugby’s HSBC Sevens Series.
A fixture in sevens, Mitchell is boldly taking the plunge into the 15-a-side game for the first time in a decade.
The excitement and challenge of this move to the Giltinis is highly motivating.
Mitchell is also a top goalkicker. He will make a late start to the MLR season after surgery on a ruptured hamstring tendon late last year.
