- DOB6 Jul 1992
Son of Bristol Rovers player Jim Eadie, No.8 Mitch nearly followed in his father’s footsteps but developed a keen interest in the oval ball instead and joined Bristol Rugby aged just 18.
Despite being born and bred in Bristol, Eadie qualified for Scotland Under-20s and played for the side between 2011 and 2013.
Making his debut for Bristol during the 2010/11 season, Eadie soon secured a regular position in the West Country side and during his seven seasons there scooped the Players’ Player of the Season award on two occasions.
In 2015/16, Eadie helped Bristol earn promotion from the Championship after seven years of trying. The No.8 would face his future team in Saints during that season in the Premiership, and was one of Bristol’s try scorers as they ran Saints close at Franklin’s Gardens in 2017.
But after making more than a century of appearances for Bristol, Eadie made the switch to Northampton for the start of the 2017/18 season, earning his debut against Saracens in the season opener at Twickenham.
Eadie then scored his first points in Black, Green and Gold in the final game of the 2017/18 season as Saints downed Worcester Warriors at Franklin’s Gardens.
