"HEAD TO HEAD"
"BY PAUL HOPKINS"
"STEVE OJOMOH IS 32 YEARS OLD AND HAS REPRESENTED ENGLAND ON TWELVE OCCASIONS, THE FIRST BEING THE 13-12 DEFEAT TO IRELAND AT TWICKENHAM IN FEBRUARY 1994."
"His last appearance for England came during the 1998 thrashing at the hands of New Zealand, where the All Blacks ran riot winning 64-22."
"He has played most of his rugby at the Rec for Bath, but joined Gloucester to link up with Richard Hill. Despite the transfer, Steve never actually settled at Gloucester and remained living in Bath, opting to travel up the MS for training every day. Steve left Gloucester at the beginning of last season to join fellow England international Adedayo Adebayo at Overmach Parma on a three year contract, "I had another year left on my Gloucester contract but Parma came in with a three-year deal. Last season wasn't the best for me, or the club, although things did improve towards the latter stages," he said. His stay in Italy was short lived though with Newport capturing his signature at the beginning of the season to help compensate the loss of Peter Buxton to Gloucester and Joe Powell who joined Swansea before opting to return to Rodney Parade. He was delighted at the opportunity to play for the Black and Ambers, "I have always had huge respect for the Welsh club scene and Newport, more than most, have made unbelievable progress these last three seasons. On the field they are right up there with the very best sides in Europe, while off the field their marketing and community work is setting the standard for others to follow. It's obvious that I'm joining a really big club that has great ambition. I can't wait to get started." Steve made his competitive debut for Newport in August against Bridgend at Rodney Parade, forming a formidable back row alongside Andrew Powell and Jason Forster. It was not to be a winning start though as the Ravens triumphed 13-5 in appalling conditions with Forster scoring Newport's only try. Arguably his best game in a Black and Amber shirt so far came in the 24-9 Celtic League victory over Scottish Borders, where he scored a quality try as well as bossing the back row."
