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.
