Dragons sign former England U20s star Olowofela
The former England U20s star joins the Newport-based side with ‘immediate effect’.
“I would like to thank Leicester and the Dragons for their support of me to come here this season,” Olowofela said. “It’s a great opportunity for me to develop my game further and I can‘t wait to get started and wear that Dragons jersey.”
Dean Ryan, Director of Dragons Rugby, said: “We believe that Jordan can not only continue his development but also contribute to our environment and we would like to thank Leicester for working with us on this occasion.
“He is a different option for us in the back three and we all look forward to working with him.”
Olowofela came through the Tigers Academy and the wing has gone on to make 41 appearances and spent the 2020/2021 season on loan with the Western Force in Australia, making 10 appearances.
The club said that the Hull-born speedster “is sure to excite Dragons fans with his high-speed attacking style”.
In the new URC format all 16 teams will be ranked across a single table which will reward the top eight teams with their places in an expanded Final Series that includes a full Quarter-final stage, followed by Semi-finals before the best two teams meet in the URC Grand Final in June.
