The backrower trained with his new teammates for the first time this week since signing from St George Illawarra and has admitted he cannot wait to get stuck in at the John Smith’s Stadium.
“I wanted to have that experience of playing over here and it is good for my family to be able to travel,” Ikahihfo told the club’s official website.
“I’m really looking forward to playing in Super League. I always thought it would be something I would do when I was older but the opportunity to play here is something that I have always wanted to do.
“It feels good to be here, it was a long travel but I have settled in really well. I have worked with a few coaches so far in my career and hopefully Paul [Anderson] can get me to the next level.”
Ikahihfo is joining a Huddersfield team that already boast the likes of Sam Rapira and Ukuma Ta’ai, former teammates of the club’s new signing, and the 25 year-old has said that is a massive boost to him settling in.
“It’s good to be back with them,” he said.
“I always watched Sam when I was growing up and to be over here and play with him again is greatbecause he’s a legend to be back with Ukuma Ta’ai feels really good as well.”
“They have both been helping me a lot and it’s been great to have them here. They have both been coming out and helping me with stuff and to settle in and I feel really welcome here. The club has been great and it’s been really good so far.”
