DoB: 08/04/2002 Height: 184 cm Weight: 105 kg

Ollie joined Newcastle Falcons in the summer of 2023 from Exeter Chiefs.

The back-row forward won back-to-back BUCS Super Rugby titles with Exeter University in 2022 and 23, captaining them in the second season as he completed his economics degree.

Raised in Macclesfield, he began his rugby journey with Knutsford RFC and joined Sale Sharks’ academy, where he captained their Under-18s team before moving to study at Exeter.

Qualifying for Scotland due to his grandmother being from Perth, he represented the Scots at Under-16s and 20s levels, with the 18s programme being scrapped due to the Covid pandemic.

During his time studying in Devon Ollie signed professional terms with Exeter Chiefs, spending two seasons there before heading to Newcastle.
