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