In 2016, the explosive back ran in eight tries in just three Premiership Sevens group matches for Sale to top Christian Wade’s try-scoring record in the competition.

A rapid winger, Odogwu previously spent time with Leicester Tigers while also having represented England Under 20s.

During his first season in Manchester with the Sale Sharks, he impressed across both the Premiership and Champions Cup and went on to score seven tries in 29 first-team appearances for the Sharks.

Odogwu made the move from Sale Sharks and signed for Wasps in the 2019/20 season

In 2016, the explosive back ran in eight tries in just three Premiership Sevens group matches for Sale to top Christian Wade’s try-scoring record in the competition.
His first outing in a Wasps jersey was at the 2019 Premiership 7s where he helped his side reach the final for the sixth successive time, contributing six tries and in the process becoming the competition's top try-scorer of all time.

In January 2021, he was named in England's senior 28-man squad for the 2021 Six Nations tournament.

He did not make his test debut during the 2021 Six Nations and his chances of debuting during the Summers tests later that year were curtailed by an ACL injury he suffered in May.

JW June 2021.
