Sebastine Ikahihifo to remain on loan at Salford from Huddersfield next season

Salford forward Sebastine Ikahihifo has confirmed he will remain at the AJ Bell Stadium on loan from Huddersfield for the 2021 season.

The Auckland-born prop, who joined Huddersfield from St George Illawarra in 2016, spent the whole of the 2020 season on loan to the Red Devils and helped them reach a first Challenge Cup final for 51 years.Ikahihifo said: “I’m really looking forward to another year here. I got my mental confidence back this season and I’m playing my game.

“I’ve never been in a team environment where there are so many uplifting personalities.”

Salford director of rugby and operations Ian Blease said: “We’ve been really impressed by the way Seb’s applied himself with us this season.

“He recaptured the level of performance which made him one of the competition’s most effective front-rowers and showcased a determination which helped carry us to Wembley.”

The Red Devils are searching for a new head coach following the sudden departure of Ian Watson, who is widely expected to fill the Giants’ coaching vacancy.
