Salford Red Devils has named their latest acquisition Ben Nakubuwai as one of the players to watch in the 2018 season.

According to League Express, Nakubuwai had an impressive 2017 Rugby League World Cup campaign which saw him make five appearances for the Vodafone Fijian Bati on their road to the semifinals.

The World Cup star comes to the AJ Bell Stadium after a spell in the NRL with Gold Coast Titans.

League Express has indicated that Levy Nzoungou dubbed Salford’s rookie is to excite the 2018 season tipping French forward to make an impact off the bench with his ‘tremendous strength and leg speed’.

Nzoungou joined the Red Devils from Championship side Toulouse Olympique after successful spells in the youth ranks at St Helens and Melbourne Storm.

Both Nakubuwai and Nzoungou could make their first team debuts for the Salford Red Devils in their opening pre-season friendly against Swinton Lions tomorrow.
