Initially drafted by Brisbane at the end of 1989 he didn't join them and was re-selected a year later by the Demons. He played a solitary game in 1991 before opting to put his league career on hold and sit out the entire 1992 season. He joined Brisbane in 1993, playing two seasons with the Bears before walking out over a contract dispute.

After a year of rugby league in Darwin he joined SANFL club Port Adelaide for the 1994 season. At Port, Francis ran second in the 1996 Magarey Medal, before being selected as a part of their inaugural AFL side in 1997 where he remained until 2001. After being delisted by Port, Francis agreed to cross to Fremantle until it was revealed they couldn't afford him under their salary cap. He played in the WAFL for South Fremantle with a guarantee that Fremantle would draft him at the end of the year, but he suffered a serious knee injury during the year which ended his career.

In 2009 Francis stood trial for rape, and in 2012 was sentenced to 15 months jail for domestic abuse offences towards his wife.
