2018 is Olsi Krasniqi’s first season with the Wolfpack having signed from Super League side Salford Red Devils to join the club’s charge towards the games top-flight competition. Krasniqi’s background is one of the more unorthodox when it comes to rugby league. Originally born in Tirana in Albania he grew up in the London area where he started playing as a youngster.
Krasniqi adds plenty of Super League experience to the Wolfpack ranks. After graduating from the academy to first team at one of Toronto’s rival Championship clubs London Broncos in 2010, Krasniqi racked up 91 appearances for the Broncos and Harlequins RL before extending his career with Salford, making a further 55 appearances at the top level.
A player that possesses explosive power and a high appetite for work in attack and defence, the stocky forward is a valuable asset for Paul Rowley’s side and is the perfect fit for this well balanced squad looking to really flourish in a tough Championship competition. Krasniqi is at home in the front row, second row and even at loose forward with his utility one of the main reasons he was highlighted as a key acquisition for 2018.
