The Rockhampton Rockets are pleased to announce the return of Mitch Philp to fill the position of point guard on the Rockets roster for the upcoming 2014 season.

Rockets coach Neal Tweedy said “Mitch has been a huge part of the Rockets success over many years and capped off last season’s final with an MVP performance. Mitch has proven himself a match winner with major contributions towards the Rockets championships in 2008, 2010 and 2013.

Mitch’s game brings the Rockets the element of speed in the back court. A quality many teams have struggled with over the years to contain and when you combine that with his shooting abilities he becomes a hard player to guard in this league. He is able to use his great strength to his advantage and with his speed he makes the Rockets an exciting team to watch in 2014.”

With his track record of never missing a Final Series campaign over the last 6 years the Rockets are off to a great start in compiling a formidable roster for 2014.

Mitch will join his team mates in preseason training at the start of February 2014 when the Rockets start their title defence.
