Ellis is an English rugby union player for Leicester Tigers in Premiership Rugby who made his international debut for England in 2016. 

He grew up in Knowle West and is driven by trying to offer opportunities in rugby to young people from similar backgrounds, and overcoming traditional class snobbery in the sport.

Genge played 26 times for Bristol between 2013–2016, before moving to Leicester. He is known for his aggressive ball carrying, and combatative style. He is nicknamed "Baby Rhino" by the Rugby community, and runs his own coaching company for young people called exactly that.

Outspoken, honest, and down to earth Ellis an advocate for Youth Moves and our work wherever he goes.
