FORMER Oxford University fly half Tom Mitchell led England Sevens to silverware in Las Vegas on his debut as captain.

Mitchell, who starred in the 2011 Varsity Match, skippered England to the Plate and a fifth-placed finish in round four of the HSBC Sevens World Series.

The 24-year-old, who is the series’ leading scorer with 156 points, will hope to retain the captaincy for this summer’s Commonwealth Games.
