"Injury kept Mitchell out of the 2016 Super Rugby season, so he'll be looking to create a big impact in 2017. A player with a load of potential." - The Chiefs

Mitchell Karpik was a stand out for the New Zealand Junior World Cup winning U20’s.  His blistering form continued for Auckland during the 2015 ITM Cup where his side made it to the finals.
