Ollie Thorley scores stunning try, back in England contention

Gloucester winger Ollie Thorley is back with a bang.

The speedster broke through the Saracens defence and got the ball down as Kingsholm erupted.

Another commented: “Tense stuff. Great game so far, so happy to see Thorley back in form.”

A third said: “Malins vs Thorley will be giving Borthwick a headache,”

Ollie Thorley facts:

Thorley made his professional debut at age 17, becoming the youngest player to play for Gloucester in the professional era when he played the full 80 minutes, partnered with World Cup winner Mike Tindall 

He is the great nephew of Martin Britt, a former football player who played as a striker for Blackburn Rovers from 1961 to 1966. His aunt is the TV presenter and model Eku Edewor. He’s also Itoje’s cousin, after his grandfather remarried a Nigerian woman who is the Saracens lock’s aunt.

Thorley – who ran the distance in 10.6 seconds aged 16 – is even faster than teammate Jonny May

A huge fan of classic cars, he’s been pictured tearing up the roads in a Morgan Three Wheeler. Two years ago, he also bought a 1956 Morris Minor Traveller for £4,500. It cost him about £500 a year to maintain and then he probably spent about £1,000 on upgrades.

The winger spends £1,500 a month on professional services – from experts who use sports psychology and massage to help him improve his performance. He also recently bought a £4,000 sauna which he built himself.
