Tireless outside back Lachlan Mitchell may appear to be one of the quiet achievers at the RaboDirect Rebels, but both his teammates and the AAMI Park crowd certainly know his worth.Playing as either a centre or a wing, the 25 year old appeared in 31 of a possible 32 games for the Rebels in their first two seasons. Only a sickening clash against the Hurricanes in Wellington (Mitchell was stretchered from the field), saw him miss the following week's game against the ACT Brumbies.The composed back joined the Rebels from English Premiership side London Wasps, where he had been since 2008. Prior to that, Mitchell spent time with the Waratahs Academy following impressive performances for Sydney University in the Shute Shield.His tenacious work ethic and stellar return from the UK prompted RaboDirect Rebels Head Coach Damien Hill to re-sign the versatile back again in 2012, where he will remain at the club until at least 2014. Lockie’s skill set is vast.Away from the Rugby paddock he is an avid food critic, sculptor, baker, and is frequently spotted roaming the streets of Rathdowne Village with a book on various cultures.
