Oli, who began his rugby development at Heworth, is a product of Trinity’s youth system, and has shone at scholarship and academy level representing Yorkshire Academy in 2022 and 2023.
Primarily a centre three-quarter the 19 year old can cover both wing and full back positions. Last season he made his Super League debut with the club and also made 11 impressive appearances scoring 6 tries on a loan period at York City Knights in the Championship.
Head Coach Daryl Powell said: ‘I watched a Wakefield Academy game last season, and not knowing Oliver, picked him as the best player on the field straight away. He’s got all the athletic capabilities to be an outstanding centre in Super League in the future and I’m delighted he has extended his contract to stay with us. I can’t wait to work with him over the next three years see exactly how far he can go.’
