Ollie Thorley (born 11 September 1996) is an English rugby union player who plays for Gloucester Rugby in the Aviva Premiership. Debuting at 17, he is currently the youngest player to play for Gloucester in the professional era.
Ollie became the club's youngest first team try scorer when he crossed against Ospreys in March 2015 in the LV= Cup and he marked his debut in the Aviva Premiership with the game's only try against the Exeter Chiefs in April 2016.
Following a spate of tries and Man of the Match presentations, Thorley was awarded the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Month for November 2018.
Ollie won the RPA Young Player of the Year Award for the 2018/2019 season and the Premiership Rugby Try of the Season Award.
Thorley was selected for the Senior England squad for the first time when Eddie Jones announced his 2019 Six Nations squad after a string of impressive performances for his club, Gloucester.
Thorley attended St Paul's Cathedral School until the age of seven, whereupon his family moved out of London and to the Cotswolds. He then attended Cheltenham College Junior School and Cheltenham College, respectively - the latter of which he was Deputy Head Boy. He captained the CC 1st XV in Upper Sixth, and the Athletics Team.
