Lock Tom Ellis is an Old Millfieldian who joined the Senior Academy in 2013/14.
Ellis was a member of the England U18s squad which was crowned champions of Europe in March 2013. He followed this up in 2014 as a member of England U20s Junior World Cup Championship-winning squad.
Following in the footsteps of some of his illustrious sporting relatives (uncle Brian Roberts threw the javelin for Great Britain), Ellis has won representative honours in the 800 metres, shot put, high jump and basketball.
In 2014/15, an injury crisis at the Club saw Ellis and Charlie Ewels promoted to first team action against Glasgow Warriors in the Champions Cup – both players’ senior debuts.
Ellis switched to the back row in the summer of 2016 and he hasn't looked back since. His performances throughout the 2016-17 season earned him a call-up to the England squad to face the Barbarians, but unfortunately a knee injury ruled him out of making his international debut. However, 2017/18 promises to be a big year for Club and country for Ellis.
