Elliot Millar Mills to join Ealing Trailfinders from Edinburgh Rugby
Ealing Trailfinders can today announce the signing of Elliot Millar Mills from Edinburgh Rugby for the 2018/19 season.
The tight-head prop joined the Scottish capital side from Yorkshire Carnegie last year and made his debut in the 1872 Cup against Glasgow at Scotstoun.
He began life with Edinburgh on tour in South Africa as they took on the Cheetahs in the Pro 14, and has spent the year learning from the likes of WP Nel at BT Murrayfield.
The 25-year-old, who stands at 5ft 10” got the chance to join Yorkshire Carnegie permanently following a successful trial period from Caldy.
His performances for the Headingley outfit saw him snapped up by Richard Cockerill, and after signing for the West Londoners he will now be looking to compete for a place in the Ealing Trailfinders front-row alongside some top quality players.
Millar Mills is looking forward to his next chapter at Vallis Way:
“I’m really excited for the challenge of the Championship and moving back down to London. I’ve watched and played against Ealing Trailfinders as they’ve moved up the leagues and I’ve always been impressed with the set up here.”
Director of Rugby Ben Ward says the prop can be a top player for the West Londoners.
“Elliot already has Championship experience and his set-piece is very strong so we’re confident he will add plenty of quality for next season.”
