Olpherts joined Thunder from Hemel Stags in 2016 and made a sizeable impression for his new club, making 16 appearances and scoring 13 tries.
A strong and powerful runner, the 24-year-old f24-year-oldld was a near permanent fixture at centre during the 2016 season with his abrasive style of play proving to be a potent weapon in getting Thunder onto the front foot in attack.
With impressive pace backing up his physical presence on the field, he proved a suitable dangerous addition to the Thunder squad in 2016 and will be hopeful of delivering more of the same for Newcastle this season.
