Background[edit]

He played his junior rugby league for the Runaway Bay Seagulls. He also played rugby union while attending The Southport School,[2] before being signed by the Sydney Roosters.

Playing career[edit]

Early years[edit]

From 2012 to 2014, Elliot played for the Sydney Roosters' NYC team.[3]

2014[edit]

On 3 May, Elliot played for the Queensland under-20s team against the New South Wales under-20s team.[4] In round 17 of the 2014 NRL season, he made his NRL debut for the Roosters against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks,[5] scoring a try on debut.[6] On 2 September, he was named at centre in the 2014 NYC Team of the Year.[7]

2015[edit]

On 27 July, Elliot re-signed with the Roosters on a 2-year contract.[8]

2016[edit]

On 8 June, Elliot joined the Newcastle Knights effective immediately on a contract until the end of 2017, after being released from the final two years of his Roosters contract.[9] He made his Knights debut in round 14 against the New Zealand Warriors,[10] scoring a try.[11]

2017[edit]

After 23 games for the Knights, Elliot left the club at the conclusion of the 2017 season due to not being offered a new contract.[12] In October, he signed a 1-year contract with the Gold Coast Titans starting in 2018.[13]

2018[edit]

Elliot made his Titans debut in round 8 against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks, playing at centre.[14] In July, it was announced that he would depart the Titans mid-season to take up a contract with the Leigh Centurions in the Championship until the end of 2018.[15] However the Titans refused to release him due to injuries and lack of depth of outside backs at the club.[16] He then went on to sign with the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles for the 2019 season.

Elliot made his debut for Manly-Warringah against the Wests Tigers in round 1 of the 2019 NRL season at Leichhardt Oval. He scored his first try for the club in Round 10 against Cronulla at Shark Park which ended in a 24-14 victory.[17][18]
