Hometown: Hamilton, New Zealand
O’Donnell made his debut for the New Zealand sevens team in the 2010 Dubai Sevens at just 19 years old. Emerging as a young force in rugby, O’Donnell had the honor of being called up to the Maori All Blacks during the RFU Championship XV at Castle Park in Doncaster, England on November 17, 2012. The back continued to make a name for himself, famously scoring a hat trick during the final of the 2011 Wellington Sevens against England. Soon after, the wing took his talents to Super Rugby. O’Donnell made an appearance on the Chiefs squad in 2012 before joining the Highlanders in 2013.
