Welsh International Craig Mitchell’s hopes of joining a growing Welsh contingent at Aviva side Bath have taken a knock after picking up a shoulder injury.
Mitchell had arrived at the West Country outfit on a short term trial with the hopes of impressing and joining fellow Welshmen, Taulupe Faletau, Luke Charteris, Rhys Priestland and Aled Brew.
Bath Director of Rugby Todd Blackadder told the Bath Chronicle,
“We got Craig on trial, basically, and he’s done his shoulder,we were going to see what he was like and make a decision.”
“Because he’s dislocated his shoulder on our watch we’ll look after him.”We think that’s the right thing to do. It could be a six-month injury.”
