Ellie started playing rugby at 20 years old, when Drybrook Ladies reformed in 2013. She played three seasons for The Squirrels and went on to captain them in the fourth.
Ellie wanted to develop my skills and knowledge further, so decided to move to Gloucester-Hartpury where she hoped to get the chance to play in the Tyrrells Premier 15s.
She played her first full game in October 2017 and also got the chance to play for England 7s in May this year in an invitational tournament in France.
Ellie lives on a working farm and has four horses on which she competes regularly, as well as working full-time as a receptionist at Dene Magna School in Mitcheldean.
