RUNY Up The Ante With Drew Mitchell Signing

In another splash move made in the MLR this week, RUNY have signed 71-cap Wallaby winger Drew Mitchell out of retirement for the upcoming 2020 season. 

Mitchell, who scored 34 tries in his test career for Australia, retired at the end 2017 after a four year stint with French side Toulon, for whom he appeared 81 times, scoring 23 tries, thrice winning the Heineken Champions Cup, and twice winning the French Top14. 

His 14 World Cup tries rank 3rd all time, behind Bryan Habana and Jonah Lomu, who each have 15. 

Mitchell was also a Super Rugby star for the the Queensland Reds, the Western Force, and the New South Wales Waratahs, scoring 37 tries in his Super Rugby career. 

Following his retirement, the charismatic winger found a career in media and broadcasting in Australia with FoxSports, but recently posted a tweet indicating he was ready to lace up the boots again. 

RUNY quickly swept in and offered the three-time Wallaby World Cup representative a deal, which he accepted. His addition adds even more firepower to a backline that now features 54-cap France center Mathieu Bastareaud and 34-cap England fullback Ben Foden. 

According to RugbyPass, two more superstars, Irishman Simon Zebo and Englishman Chris Robshaw, are also slated to meet with the New York franchise soon. Both Zebo's contract at Racing 92 and Robshaw's contract at Harlequins are due to expire at the end of this season. 

Mitchell will be 35 years old this season, but after a two-year hiatus the fleet-footed stepper should be fresh as he's been in years.
