Topsy Ojo

We dont have Topsy Ojo's picture yet for this season

Topsy Ojo was an outstanding school sportsman at Dartford Grammar School in Kent where he captained the 1st XV and excelled at athletics. His student success saw him representing Kent and London & South-East Schools at both U16 and U18 levels.

Topsy's athletic abilities helped him to an equally successful start in senior rugby. After joining the London Irish Academy in July 2003, he made his first team debut against London Wasps in October 2005. He has since gone on to become an established member of a talented London Irish backline and the clu8b's record try scorer, making 183 senior appearances and scoring 64 tries; among the most memorable of which were his two tries against Toulouse in the Heineken Cup semi-final at Twickenham in 2008 and his intercept try against Munster in the home victory over the Irish province in the 2010/11 Heineken Cup.

A member of the 2006 Grand Slam winning England U21 squad, the elusive and pacey winger played in four of England's five matches, notching up a record four tries in their 48-3 victory over Italy.

Later that same year he played in every minute of the team's IRB U21 World Championship campaign. Topsy made his full international debut on England's 2008 summer tour to New Zealand, scoring two tries on his debut in the first Test. He retained his starting berth in the second Test match although he was powerless to prevent England going down to the home side in both games of the two-Test series.

He was also part of the successful England Saxons side that won the 2011 Churchill Cup, the same year he was named London Irish Player of the Season. Topsy finished off the last Aviva Premiership campaign with six tries, five of which came in the Aviva Premiership.
