Profile

Flying winger Temitope 'Topsy' Ojo is an England international and London Irish star.

A native of Tottenham in north London, Ojo represented Kent and London and South East Schools before being recommended for the London Irish Academy. He progressed through the Exiles' ranks and made his senior debut against London Wasps in 2005.

With pace to burn, Ojo quickly became a crowd favourite and played in the European Challenge Cup final loss to Gloucester in 2006. He started the following season with a try against Harlequins at Twickenham and scored a stunning try against Toulouse in the Heineken Cup semi-final.

His club form earned him a call up to the England Saxons squad before he made the full squad for the end of season tour of New Zealand in 2008. He played in both Tests against the All Blacks, and although the matches ended in defeat, Ojo scored tries in both games. However, an off the field incident at the end of the tour saw Ojo plunged into the centre of sex allegations.

No official complaint was made against the winger, Danny Care, David Strettle or Mike Brown but Ojo and Brown were found guilty of misconduct by a Rugby Football Union investigation. Ojo has not played for England since and was not part of the Elite or Saxons squads in 2010 following his return from injury.
