The Waikato speedster has been a standout performer for the All Blacks Sevens since making his debut in 2008 where he ran in 10 tries in his first three tournaments.
He has crossed the line more times than any other New Zealand sevens player and is in the top five highest try scorers in Sevens Series history. His stunning form in 2013 when New Zealand won the Sevens Series and the Sevens Rugby World Cup in Moscow saw him named IRB Sevens Player of the Year.
Mikkelson has been part of the team that has won five Sevens Series titles, two World Cup and two Commonwealth Games gold medals. He is the most capped player in the NZ Sevens team history.
He had six seasons playing for Waikato in the NPC before he had to commit to being full time with the All Black Sevens where he amassed over 50 caps and 20 tries playing wing and fullback.
