Sam Olver

Player Biog

After making his mark with the England Under-18 squad, Sam Olver secured a professional contract with the Saints in March 2013 and made three appearances off the bench in 2013/14.

The fly appeared in four matches during the 2014 Under-20 Six Nations Championship and was also part of England’s Junior World Cup winning squad later that year.

He responded well to the pressure, too, landing a last-gasp penalty for victory over Argentina in a pool game ad going on to score a total of 28 points in the tournament.

That kind of composure – not to mention a defensive appetite that belies his small stature – led to a Saints debut in the LV= Cup win over Gloucester and Olver was a Wanderers mainstay in their run to the Aviva ‘A’ League final.

Born in Peterborough, the Saints run through his veins; he is the son of former black, green and gold hooker John Olver, who won three England caps from 1990-92 and who also coached Sam during his time at Oundle School.
