|Nottingham Rugby can confirm that promising young talent Mitchell Todd was killed in a road traffic accident on Wednesday 15 August.
Second row Mitchell, aged 21, was a product of the Nottingham Academy and impressed for the senior side during appearances in the British and Irish Cup last season.
He represented Scotland under 20's in last seasons' Six Nations and also featured in the Junior World Cup. He impressed during loan spells at both Leicester Lions and Birmingham Solihull and had just completed his degree in Sports Therapy at Coventry University. He signed a new contract with Nottingham in May of this year and was expected to make a big impact during the 2012-2013 season.
He was an exceptional talent and a highly valued member of the squad, and he will be missed by all of those that knew him. Our thoughts are with Mitchell's family and friends at this difficult time.
As a result of this news, Nottingham's scheduled match vs Loughborough Students, on Saturday 18 August, has now been cancelled.
