The 2016/17 season proved to be a breakthrough year for prop Ellis Genge as he made a massive impact in his first full campaign at Leicester Tigers.

A ball-carrying No8 in England age-group rugby, Genge was converted to loosehead prop and joined Tigers on loan from hometown club Bristol in the final months of the 2015/16 season before making the move more permanent.

He quickly made a big impression, enjoying a first start in the final league game of 2015/16 at Bath and playing in the Premiership semi-final at Saracens before being called into the senior England squad.

He joined club colleagues Dan Cole and Ben Youngs in the national squad and made his Test debut off the bench in a win against Wales at Twickenham before going on the summer tour to Australia.

In 2016/17 he collected the supporters’ Young Player and Best Newcomer awards as he established himself in the Tigers front row and was nominated for the RPA Young Player award as well as earning a place in the England squad to tour Argentina and agreeing new contract terms at Leicester.

Ellis collected a second Young Player award from supporters in 2017/18 while also being named in the Premiership Team of the Season despite missing the middle chunk of the year with a shoulder injury and then joined the England squad for the tour to South Africa.

As a teenager, he won two AASE League titles with Hartpury College, alongside a Player of the Year award, and came through the Bristol academy to make his first-team debut in 2014/15, ending that year by playing all five games for England Under-20s in the World Junior Championships.
