Francis was born in Gravesend, Kent, attended Kent College, Canterbury and played for Old Gravesendians RFC & Maidstone FC. He was also 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 two years with the Edinburgh outfit, but suffered an injury in the pre-season ahead of the 2013-14 campaign which effectively kept him out of action for the whole season.
For the remainder of 2015 Francis returned to New Zealand, where he linked with the ITM Cup team Counties Manukau on a two-year deal. After a strong showing in a Tana Umaga coached side, he followed his coach and signed a deal with the Super Rugby team the Blues for the 2016 Super Rugby season.
On 20 March 2017, Francis signed to return to England and join Gallagher Premiership club Northampton Saints from the 2017-18 season. This made him eligible to be picked for England again, and he was subsequently picked for England's 2017 summer tour of Argentina.
