Piers Francis (born 20 June 1990) is an English rugby union footballer who plays as a stand-off.


Francis was born in Gravesend, Kent and was a member of the Saracens Academy for three years during his teens. He moved to New Zealand at the age of 18 and played ITM Cup rugby for both Auckland and Waikato before returning to the UK in 2012 to sign with Edinburgh.

He spent 2 years with the Edinburgh outfit but suffered an injury in pre-season ahead of the 2013-14 campaign which effectively kept in out of action for the whole season.

He was released in the summer of 2014 along with other fly-halves Harry Leonard & Gregor Hunter.

It was announced in November 2014 that he had signed with RFU Championship side Doncaster Knights with the contract running until March 2015.
