Jordan Olowofela made his Super Rugby debut in Round 6 of the 2021 Australian competition as a replacement for the Western Force against the Brumbies in Canberra.

Olowofela replaced USA international Marcel Brache in the 68th minute of the match. 

The Force were defeated 42-14 by the defending Super Rugby Australia champions and currently sit fourth on the ladder with one win from five matches. 

The 22-year-old is on loan 'down under' and makes his first appearance less than a month after arriving in Australia. 

Olowofela is one of nine Tigers on currently on loan from Leicester, with gametime limited during the remaining weeks of the 2020/21 season due to the cancellation of both the Premiership Rugby Cup and Premiership Rugby Shield competitions. 

The outside-back is one of two Tigers players in Australia, with George Worth on loan at the Melbourne Rebels.
