- DOB25 May 1997
Maidstone-born scrum-half Alex Mitchell signed on with Saints Academy in 2015 after being a part of the academy set-up at Sale Sharks.
Debuting in Black, Green and Gold against Saracens in 2017 after featuring for Wanderers, Mitchell would make nine appearances in his fledgling season – helping Wanderers claim back-to-back Premiership Rugby Shield titles in 2017 and 2018 along the way.
But the scrum-half's breakthrough season came in 2018/19, with his most rugby to date coming as Saints reached the knock-out stages of every senior competition and claimed the Premiership Rugby Cup title as the downed Saracens on home soil.
Mitchell – who has previously represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18 and Under-20 level – was rewarded for his performances with a call-up to the England senior squad ahead of the 2020 summer series, and featured in an uncapped match against Barbarians.
And the following season Mitchell racked up his 50th appearance in Black, Green and Gold before joining up with the England squad again ahead of their 2021 summer series.
