Kevin Naiqama has revealed that he had a few Super League offers on the table, but St Helens was the best fit for himself.
The Fiji captain has joined Saints on a three-year deal from NRL side Wests Tigers.
Naiqama has been in the UK for around a month now and revealed the decision to join Saints was quite an easy one.
He said: “It was a deep desire in me to come over here and compete in Super League.
“I’d had a few offers but St Helens was the best fit for me. It is a proud and historic club that has been very successful and I wanted to be part of it.
“With the coaching staff and playing group we have here, there is definitely a great opportunity looming. We were unlucky this year and I’m sure with the new additions that we can better our chances next year.
“It is an awesome playing squad and they make it very enjoyable and exciting to turn up every day at training. There are a lot of characters in the team too, but everyone has been definitely welcoming and it has been very peaceful for myself to get to know the lads.”
