Full back Jacob Mitchell is one of five players from Saddleworth Rangers to join the Rhinos scholarship for 2020. Mitchell played all of his junior rugby for Rangers, winning the Oldham Cup and Lancashire League during his time at the club. Now part of twenty new players to join Mark Butterill’s side for 2020, he is aiming to develop his fitness and strength.
Mitchell’s most memorable rugby moment was watching Leeds win the 2017 Grand Final and if he could play any other sport professionally, he would be a footballer because he used to play it. His favourite film is Patriots Day and he likes a Butterfly Burger from Nandos.
