Recruited from Widnes Vikings leading into the 2019 Season, Tom Olbison came to the Wolfpack with a wealth of experience gathered since his 2009 Super League debut. Able to play in both the front row and second row, Olbison has played over 200 professional fixtures and took to the field in every Wolfpack clash in 2019.
2020 marks the Englishmen’s return to the top division and the Wolfpack will be delighted to have his line-breaking, hard-tackling talents at their disposal during their historic maiden Super League campaign.
It was extremely clear early on in 2019 that first-year Wolfpack Coach Brian McDermott valued the determination and energy that Olbison brought to his side, so much so that he was never left off the team sheet. Able to play in several positions, Olbison is a highly valued player for the Wolfpack and his continued presence will see fans, staff and players alike thrilled.
Doing his best work in defence, Olbison also managed to hit the scoreboard in 2019, something that added to his already invaluable contribution to his new team. With a big body and infectious energy, he will be one that his teammates look to as they look to make a mark in the top-division at the first time of asking.
