Mitch's GrassRoots club is the Tieri Tigers from of all places, Central Queensland, the heart of rugby league territory.
Tieri is a 10hr drive nor-west of Brisbane & 90kms from Emerald, the nearest town, making the Tigers the most remote GrassRoots club yet nominated.
Mitch made his debut in the ill-fated friendly against France in 2013 after starring for German giants Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup final and has firmly established himself in the Australian squad. Life for Mitch now is a very, very long way from his beginnings at Tieri Oval.
Its both a pleasure & an honour to have him aboard & thanks to the all those who helped make this possible, especially Wendy, Mark & Deb.
