As part of the Norfolk contingent joining the Leicester Tigers academy in 2017, Norwich-born back-rower Ollie Ashworth followed a well-trodden path to Welford Road.

Born in Norwich, Ollie played at Wymondham RFC in the back row and then at centre before settling in the forward pack again.

He joined the Tigers’ Norfolk DPP set-up and was in the stands as Tigers won the Under-18s Academies League title in 2017/18 before starting at No8 in the Final win over Gloucester a year later when he also claimed the Players’ Player of the Year award.

He moved up to the Development squad for 2019/20 and has spent two seasons gaining senior league experience with Hinckley RFC.
