Playing history[edit]

Inman is a graduate of Saint Ignatius' College in Sydney.[1] His club was Sydney University where he was coached by 2012 Rebels coach Damien Hill.[2] In the 2008 Shute Shield final Inman and his brother Dane found themselves in opposing teams: Mitch for Sydney Uni and Dane for Randwick.[3]

In 2009 Inman trialled with the NSW Waratahs[4] and toured with them to Fiji.[1] He moved to Perth in 2010 and made his Super Rugby debut for the Western Force against the Brumbies.[citation needed] He played every round of the Force's 2010 season.[5] He returned to NSW later in 2010 to help Sydney Uni contest the Shute Shield final, again, against Randwick. The teams included Wallabies Berrick Barnes for the students, and Kurtley Beale for Randwick.[6] For the start of the 2011 Super Rugby season he was back in Perth with the Force but suffered a serious elbow injury during the round three clash with the Sharks.[7] Later in 2011 he played at No. 13 outside James O'Connor at #12.[8]

Inman signed, in mid-2011, a two-year contract with the Melbourne Rebels to commence in 2012.[2][5] Other new recruits would include Beale (Waratahs), O'Connor (Force) and Paul Alo-Emile (Force).[9]

International experience[edit]
