After a high-profile switch from rivals Sydney Roosters to the Rabbitohs, Mitchell has started the first two rounds of the 2020 season at full-back before the competition was suspended thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
At just 22, Mitchell has won two Premierships, made 98 NRL appearances, scored 65 tries and represented both New South Wales and Australia.
The news comes after ARL Commission Chairman Peter V’landys announced that an agreement has been reached with Channel Nine and Fox Sports for the competition to resume on May 28th.
