Charlie Ewels

29th Jun 1995 1.98m/105kg No 5 Lock

Charlie grew up in Bournemouth, attending Moordown St Johns School and Bournemouth School. He captained Bournemouth school to a number of local successes playing in a number 8 role and his partnership with speedster Chris Speers was very formidable.

Ewels, who hails from Bournemouth, was a key member of the England U20 team which won the 2014 Junior World Championship in New Zealand.

He received his first call up to the senior England squad by coach Eddie Jones on 8 May 2016 for a three-day training squad.

After joining Bath in 2014, the club announced to have extended Ewels' contract in June 2016.

In October 2016, Ewels became one of 6 players to get included into England's 33-man squad for the 2016 Wealth Series. The second-row is yet to make his international debut, however with Maro Itoje and George Kruis both being sidelined for the November Tests.

The uncapped second-row forward was included for the first time in England's match-day 23 to face Fiji in November 2016. His versatility means he can also cover the back-row which will work in his favour.

The second rower made his bow off the replacement bench during England’s 58-15 victory over Fiji.

In April 2017, Ewels was named in the England squad for the two-test Tour to Argentina in June, having previously won 3 caps.

Ewels has made over 50 appearances for Bath heading into the 2018/19 season.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Ewels has had 18 European Cups appearances.

In September 2019, he was named Bath Rugby captain ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, replacing Matt Garvey.
