Woodburn Happy To Be Here

Olly Woodburn got his Nottingham career off to a flying start with a try on debut against Ealing Trailfinders on Sunday.

The Bath winger, who is on a dual registered contract with Nottingham, took advantage of a knock on by Ealing and showed some good footwork before crossing for the Green and Whites' first try of the afternoon.

Woodburn said, "It's good to be here and to grab a try in my first appearance for the club.  Martin Haag used to coach me when I was in the Academy at Bath, so him being here was a big influence in me deciding to come.

"He's a really good coach who I have a lot of respect for and I'm sure it will improve my game being here and working with him again.

"The result was disappointing at the weekend and we've been working hard in training this week to put things right.  We're all looking forward to getting on the pitch again as soon as possible to move on."

Woodburn joined Bath Rugby Academy in the 2010/11 season.

His potential having been spotted by Bath Rugby at the age of 15, he was duly selected for the club's development squad. Hailing from Keynsham, Woodburn's schoolboy and club rugby exploits were soon repaid when he was chosen to represent Somerset County.

Woodburn made his debut for the Bath Rugby 1st XV in October 2011, scoring a try against Newport Gwent Dragons in the LV= Cup just 150 seconds into the game. He also spent the 2011/12 season on loan at Bristol Rugby.
