A year after taking up the game at the age of 12 at Whitgift School and Sutton & Epsom RFC, Sebastian Adeniran-Olule became a member of the Harlequins Academy and has now been there for five years. He is in the upper sixth form at Wellington College, studying for A-levels in maths, physics and economics.
London-born Seb had attended West Dene Preparatory School before moving to Whitgift in Year 6 and his ambitions include making his Harlequins senior debut and playing for England U20 next year. He featured for Harlequins in an Aviva A League fixture against London Wasps last October and has learned much, dating back to his days at Sutton & Epsom where Doug Coales and Bruce South mentored him.
Howard Graham and Jim Evans at Harlequins, together with Steve Shortland and Kevin Brennan at Wellington College are important influences, along with Ian Peel and Peter Walton. His earliest representative honours were for Surrey U14, U15 and U16 and he graduated not only to the London & South-East U16 team but also to the England U16 and U17 sides.
Seb toured Hong Kong and New Zealand last August with the unbeaten Wellington College party but his most memorable match was for England U16 in the side’s victory over Wales at Wellington College. His England U18 debut was off the bench in the 43-12 win over Wales at Neath in March this year.
A prop by inclination, he has started playing at hooker for Harlequins in the academy league. His favourite players are Cian Healy, Dan Cole and Bismarck du Plessis and Twickenham Stoop is the ground he likes most.
