Mitchell to be a Force on the wing

Australian Speedster Drew Mitchell will move from fullback to the wing for the 2008 Super 14. Mitchell will change places with Cameron Shepherd in the Force back line and he is hoping that the change will see a continuation of the try scoring spree seen at the world cup.

Mitchell scored seven tries in four matches as a winger at the recent world cup in France and that broke David Campese’s 16-year old Wallabies record for scoring tries at the world cup.

His success at the world cup has changed his mind about playing on the wing but he now says that he feels at home on the wing and is looking forward to the extra attacking chances.

“The World Cup gave me a huge amount of confidence in terms of my play on the wing and what I’m capable of doing if I put myself in those positions,” Mitchell told AAP

“When you’re playing a good brand of rugby, being a winger is quite appealing.

“If your forward pack and back line are creating opportunities for you to finish them then that is quite exciting.”
