Ellis can’t wait to start a game

England and Leicester scrum-half Harry Ellis says that he is ready to start a match after playing for 20 minutes in Saturday’s 34-21 win against Leeds .

After the Leeds match he told the BBC, “I feel as though I could now start a game.

“I’m strong enough, I’m fit enough and all the conditioning work I’ve been doing has been spot on.”

Ellis,25, has been out injured since rupturing his his left anterior cruciate ligament in the Premiership semi-final against Bristol last season.

The injury cost him a place in the Rugby World cup.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s trip to Worcester he said: “I’ve got something to add to the team and hopefully I’ll get the chance to do that.”

His fly-half team-mate Ian Humphreys feels that the Tigers should not rush Ellis back into action.

“I think it’s unfair for everybody to just go ‘Harry’s back, brilliant!’,”

“I think it would be wrong to rush Harry back, he will be rusty, he’ll make mistakes but his enthusiasm in training is brilliant,” Humphreys said.
