Leicester Tigers outside-back Jordan Olowofela will join the Western Force on loan for the 2021 Super Rugby season.

“I am excited to see the progress he makes in Super Rugby and am confident he will represent our club in a way that will make everybody at Tigers proud"Steve Borthwick on Jordan Olowofela
Speaking about the loan agreement with the Australian side, Tigers head coach Steve Borthwick said: “In this unique season, with limited opportunities for all players to get game time, this opportunity presents a chance for Jordan to get valuable experience in his development.
“At just 22, Jordan can gain both rugby and life experience in a different environment and culture.
“I am excited to see the progress he makes in Super Rugby and am confident he will represent our club in a way that will make everybody at Tigers proud.
“We are extremely grateful to the Force for presenting this opportunity to a Leicester Tigers player and the productive process in making it happen.”
Olowofela added: “I am really excited about this opportunity and looking forward to linking up with the Western Force ahead of the new Super Rugby season.
“The chance to live in Australia and test myself in a competition like Super Rugby is exciting and I am grateful the club got me this chance for a new, different challenge and chance to get game time with less chances this Premiership season.”
