Welsh international prop Craig Mitchell, 32, re-joined Yorkshire Carnegie on loan from Gallagher Premiership side Newcastle Falcons in October 2018 until December and will then sign for the club on a permanent basis for the remainder of the 2018-19 Greene King IPA Championship campaign and the following season.

Mitchell, who has won 15 caps for Wales, originally joined Yorkshire Carnegie in March at the end of last season making six appearances before joining the Falcons on a short term deal at the start of this campaign.

Making his professional breakthrough with the Ospreys, for whom he played 24 times in the Pro 14 and a further seven in Europe, Mitchell then moved to Exeter Chiefs, turning out 26 times in the Premiership and eight in Europe.

Switching to Cardiff Blues for two years and Newport Gwent Dragons for one, Mitchell will replace countryman Rowan Jenkins at Yorkshire Carnegie who has been released by the club so he can return home to Wales.
