Something we ar all hoping for this season.

Ollie Lawrence, Worcester Warriors
Unfortunately for Lawrence, an ankle injury in which he suffered ligament damage prematurely ended his debut professional season at Worcester, where he had begun forcing himself into the first team plans of Director of Rugby Alan Solomons.

The club lost Wynand Olivier to retirement this summer and Lawrence will fancy his chances alongside Ryan Mills, Francois Venter and new arrival Ashley Beck this coming season. First seasons as a professional are always a learning curve and now the former Bromsgrove pupil will feel much more acclimated going into the new campaign.

The centre’s ability to square up defences at outside centre should be relished by Warriors, who will then have the space out wide for new signings Melani Nanai and Ed Fidow to prosper in.

I feel he is going to be the Ted. Hill of the backs this coming season, but he will have to work for it.

He went to Bromsgrove only for 6th form.

The bulk of his secondary education was at Old Swinford Hospital in Stourbridge, which has produced many quality players, Chris Pennell being one of them
