Profile

Jordan Olowofela and his twin brother Ryan are both turning heads at international level.

While Ryan broken into the England Sevens set-up in June 2017 – taking part in the Rugby Europe Grand Prix Series – Jordan, a powerful centre who can also play on the wing and full back, has opted to stick with 15-man code.

In 2018, he was rewarded for a breakthrough campaign at Leicester Tigers with a place in the England U20s squad for the Six Nations.

He was involved in all five Six Nations matches and was among the try scorers in England's 37-12 victory over Wales at Newcastle's Kingston Park.

Born in Hull, Jordan joined Leicester's academy in 2014 and first appeared on Tigers fans' radars at the Premiership Rugby Sevens Series a year later.

He played for Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College in the AASE League in 2015 but according to the youngster, the belief that he could make it as a professional did not arrive until his second year in the academy at Welford Road. 

He has long been earmarked for big things after initially appearing for England at U17 level, playing in France against their French age-group counterparts.

Fast-forward to 2018 and the elusive ball carrier made his first-team bow for Leicester Tigers in the Anglo-Welsh Cup against Bath Rugby.

Jordan counts Jason Robinson as his rugby hero ever since his time at Lincoln Minster School. A keen squash player and an avid Arsenal fan, Jordan counts Jacob Umaga amongst his best friends in the sport.
