Lewis Holland

Lewis Holland was an impressive rugby player in high school, representing both his state and country in 2010 as a member of the Australian Schoolboys team. He joined the Brumbies Academy when he graduated school, playing the fifteen man game before he turned his attention to sevens at the age of 18. He made his sevens debut in 2011, played in the 2013 World Cup but was ruled out of the 2014 Commonwealth Games through injury. A strong 2015/16 World Series helped him book his spot in the final twelve for Rio as sevens made its Olympic debut.

Sadly Holland’s Rio campaign didn’t last long as he went down with a hamstring injury in Australia’s opening match 31-14 loss to France. He would have to watch on from the sidelines as the Aussies bowed out in the quarter-finals after going down 22-5 to South Africa. Losses to Argentina and France followed for Australia who finished the Games in eighth.
