Interview with Harry Oliver – England Counties U18’s cap against Ireland

Following his big game representing England last week, we briefly spoke with Harry Oliver to get his thoughts on the game!

What were your thoughts on the game?

The games were intense and at a tempo at which I have never experienced before. The standard and size of the players both for England and Ireland were insane and it was such a great team experience to be a part of.!

What was it like to wear the Rose?

“To wear the rose was an amazing surreal feeling and an experience that I am so grateful for. I thank all the coaches from Macc and my school which have given me the opportunity to achieve what I’ve achieved.”

What did you learn from the experience?

“I have learnt that I have the skill level and the speed that the game is played at international level is amazing and technically all the other players on the pitch are outstanding and the games are won on the small minute margins and little details. This is shown with England winning the game with the last play by being awarded a penalty on our line.”

Happy Birthday, @IamAustinHealey! 🥳 We could share one of his tries, but instead we thought we'd show you him boxing @BenKay5 and @dallaglio8 🤷‍♂️ We've absolutely no idea how this got past compliance. #RugbyTonight
