Go Ollie!

Rugby fans will no doubt have already noticed Ollie’s rapid rise through the professional ranks, having scored on his debut for Worcester Warriors as far back as November 2017 before becoming a mainstay of the team.

Professional rugby is the most demanding of sports and one must admire the huge level of commitment and training required to succeed – lessons and good habits that Mr Denham was able to teach Ollie as a young and talented all round sportsman at West House. 

The Headmaster recalls that managing a young Oliver was not always easy.  “Mr Denham spent a good deal of time apologising to the opposition for the manner in which Ollie had almost single-handedly destroyed them!  We ended up playing him out of year group but even when surrounded by ‘bigger boys’ he would still stand out.  After leaving West House I had the pleasure of running Harborne Cricket Club U15s while he was playing, the highlight of which was watching him score 125 not out in a total of 160 against Four Oaks Saints.  His parents threw a huge amount of love, support and encouragement into his development and can be rightly proud of all that he has achieved so far.”

The numerous paper and online articles talk of Ollie’s rugby skills, speed and balance but also his intelligence on and off the pitch. We hope to see him for many years to come as a regular for Worcester and England.
