With Gareth Ellis signing a new one-year deal with Hull FC ahead of the 2020 Super League season, the veteran forward will play into his 21st season as a professional. Here are five players, currently playing in Super League, that were born after Ellis first turned out in the competition.

Morgan Smithies

Wigan Warriors starlet Morgan Smithies enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in 2019. The forward was the first player to pull on a Cherry and White jersey born this century, when he debuted against Catalans Dragons in March of this year.

The 18-year-old has a bright future ahead of him and made headlines in Wigan’s play-off win against Salford Red Devils when he made 72 tackles in a single game to break the all-time Super League record.
