The utility back made waves in both Rugby League and Union. During the 1995 Rugby World Cup, Ellis scored six tries against Japan, breaking the record for most tries by an individual in a single game at the competition.

He then proceeded to play League for the Warriors from 1996 to 1997, before returning to rugby with the Blues in 1999 and the Highlanders in 2000.
