Andy Ellis (VC)

58.jpg
Ellis is one of the stalwarts of the Canterbury team, having played his debut match in 2005 and being the first choice halfback for Canterbury and the Crusaders ever since. His fast, aggressive, efficient and intelligent playing style make him a formidable halfback.
 
A member of the Rugby World Cup winning All Blacks side in 2011, Ellis has been unlucky to regain selection for the side. He made his All Blacks debut against England at Twickenham in 2006 and was also a member of the 2007 Rugby World Cup side.
 
As well as excelling on the rugby field, Ellis is a former Canterbury age group cricketer and a talented landscape gardener who has won numerous awards at the prestigious Ellerslie Flower Show and a Gold award at the Singapore Garden Festival last year.
