Lachie Mitchell will make his 50th Rebels appearance this Friday night when Melbourne travel up to Sydney to take on the Waratahs at Allianz Stadium.
He is the first Rebels player to achieve 50 games in the navy blue (thus being the most capped player for the team), and his appearances include 48 Super Rugby games and 1 exhibition match against the British & Irish Lions in 2013.
Mitchell was one of the foundation members of the Melbourne Rebels squad, and one of only four to still remain at the club.?
Watch Lachie Mitchell talk about his upcoming milestone, the progress the Rebels have made, and life in Melbourne. Courtesy goes to the Melbourne Rebels official YouTube channel.
Mitchell scored the Rebels first try of this season when he went over the line five minutes into the round 3 game against the Cheetahs. Many Rebels fans will be hoping he can do something similar this weekend against the in-form Waratahs.
