John has exploded onto the scene in the last 2 years. The Kingsgrove Colts junior was overlooked by a host of Clubs, only to be picked up by the North Sydney Bears in his Harold Matthews year. He then signed with the Bears for two seasons of SG Ball, whereby in 2014 he was fast tracked into the Rabbitohs NYC side, won the GIO Schoolboy Cup competition and gained selection into the touring Australian Schoolboy’s side, all in that same season. The lightning quick and powerful Olive was reunited with the Bears in their NSW Cup team, playing with the Rabbitoh’s feeder club in 2015. His consistency and impressive form was rewarded with his NRL debut in round 14 of 2015, against the Wests Tigers. He was also selected for the NSW U20s to cap of an exceptional year. John signed with the Titans in February 2016 after being granted a release from the Bunnies and made 4 NRL appearances before breaking his collar bone at training, which forced him out for the remainder of the season.
