Brumbies swansong for Mitchell?

Date published: February 7 2017

Toulon wing Drew Mitchell has been linked with a possible move to the Brumbies after signaling he wants to finish his career in Australia.

The news comes after Brumbies head coach Stephen Larkham said last week that he would love to have Mitchell at the franchise, according to AAP.

The utility-back has a contract with Toulon until June this year, after which he would be available to join the Canberra side.

When asked what his sentiments are about a possible move back to Australia, he said he is definitely thinking about it with the Brumbies a possible destination.

“Where my head’s at, I’m leaning towards coming home,” Mitchell told reporters.

“(I’m) maybe open to the Brumbies, not so much about being open to Canberra. I don’t know how I’d do there.

“I’ve spoken about wanting to come home and finish but they’re discussions I’ve got to have with people at home – whether they want to, or whether they want you to could be two different things. Hopefully it’s not.

“I’ve been speaking with Mourad a couple of times but unfortunately I got injured, so those talks have been put on ice. I’m not really too sure where I stand with him.”
