Leicester Tigers sign Bristol Rugby prop Ellis Genge

EGenge-Leic-2202

Bristol Rugby prop Ellis Genge has joined Leicester Tigers on a loan agreement with immediate effect.

The prop will return to Bristol and be available for selection for the Greene King IPA Championship play-offs.
 
The 21-year-old Genge has made 26 first-team appearances at Bristol, scoring six tries.
 
He told bristolrugby.co.uk: "I'm grateful to Andy Robinson and the club for showing understanding to my personal situation and facilitating this loan agreement.
 
"I'd like to thank everybody at Bristol Rugby for their continued support and look forward to contributing to the promotion challenge later in the season."
 
A product of Hartpury College, Genge has represented England at under-17 and under-20 levels, including the run to the Junior World Championship Final in 2015. He made his senior debut for Bristol in the British & Irish Cup in 2013/14.
 
Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: "We've been looking to add to our pool of props available for the remainder of the season and Ellis is a young man who has gained some useful experience in the last couple of seasons with Bristol. He'll get straight down to work here in a good group of front rowers."
