Oliver Jager

199.jpg
At just 21 years of age, Oliver Jager is a young Irish prop with plenty of potential to shine this season.
A member of the New Brighton Rugby Club, Jager initially came to New Zealand to attend the  Crusaders International High Performance Unit, and impressed enough there to be offered a place in the Crusaders Academy. His first stint at the International High Performance Unit (IHPU) was a six week programme in 2013, straight out of high school.  He opted to return the following year and that's when the Crusaders Academy gave him a reason to stick around.
He played for the Crusaders Knights development team this year, and his excellent form during club season has earned him a spot in the Mitre 10 Cup for the first time in 2016.
