Salford sign Ikahihifo on loan

Salford Red Devils have signed Sebastine Ikahihifo on loan from Huddersfield Giants for the 2020 season.

The forward spent four seasons in Huddersfield, having previously played for New Zealand Warriors.

“I’m looking forward to coming into a new environment,” he told the Salford club website. “Speaking to Ian Watson, I know he values culture and a team bond.

“I know he’s brought a lot out of players like Tui (Lolohea) and (Krisnan) Inu, and I’m determined to work hard, so I’m sure I can get back to my best form.”

Red Devils head coach Watson added: “Seb’s a great addition to our squad and will make our pack even more formidable this season, working alongside the likes of (Lee) Mossop, (Gil) Dudson and (Pauli) Pauli.

“He’s a player who I’ve been chasing for a number of seasons. His power and pace has always impressed when playing for the Giants.

“Your pack have to have an attitude to work hard defensively and take tough carries and Seb certainly enjoys that side of the game.”
