Craig Mitchell

Powerhouse prop Craig Mitchell joined Cardiff Blues in 2014 after the Wales international agreed a summer switch from Exeter Chiefs. The front row ace, who has won 15 caps for Wales, put pen to paper on a three-year contract that will see him remain at the Blues until at least 2017.

Neath-born Mitchell – who stands 6ft and weighs 18st 8lbs - is a destructive scrummager while his mobility and ball carrying threat around the field also make him a key attacking weapon in the loose.

He started his career at Ospreys, having represented Wales at junior levels and captained his country at Under-19 level, and quickly rose up the ranks to the senior international set-up.

Mitchell made his debut for Wales during the summer tour of North America and Canada in 2009 and was part of the Six Nations squad in 2011 and 2013. He scored his first senior international try against Ireland at the Millennium Stadium in February 2013.

The prop made the move to Exeter Chiefs in the summer of 2011 and has made a total of 35 appearances for the Devon outfit, 25 in the league, and scored one try against Gloucester.
