The Ellis Genge’s performance that cemented his place in Eddie’s plans
This is maybe the performance that cemented Genge’s place in Eddie’s November Test squad.
The 2016/17 season proved to be a breakthrough year for prop Ellis Genge who made a massive impact in his first full campaign at Leicester Tigers.
A ball-carrying No8 in his formative years in England age-groups, 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 an impression with Tigers, making his 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 England squad.
