At the age of just 18 and with only a handful of senior matches under her belt, Ellie scored a try on her debut when she came off the bench against Canada to sprint over the line.
Her natural speed saw her cross twice on her first start in England’s next match where she combined her time in camp with keeping up-to-date with studying her A Levels of Biology, PE and Geography. Ellie’s rugby career has its roots in rugby league where growing up in West Yorkshire she started at Keighley Albion before stints at West Park Leeds and Castleford, and then joined Tyrrells Premier 15s outfit Gloucester-Hartpury for the 2017/18 campaign.
A captain of Yorkshire at Under 18 level, she also represented the England Under 18 side at sevens where they were crowned European champions by winning the tournament in France earlier this year.
35 points – 7T.
