Vidot: I was homesick

Daniel Vidot says he went to Salford for the money but returned to the NRL because he was homesick.

Vidot has signed for the Gold Coast after an unfrutiful year in Super League.

The winger said he missed his Brisbane-based family too much when he was away.

“It was one of those things where I went away for the money to help the family out but there were times where I was homesick and just thinking about the family too much and I was missing them,” Vidot told

“It became a thing where time with my family was more important than the money. That’s why I made my decision to come back.

“It was obviously a massive move for me being on the other side of the world but I knew what I was doing it for and I was happy at the start.

“A few months over there it kind of started kicking in and when I got back after the season it became a thing where I thought whether I could do that again.

“Obviously I was missing my mother a lot and that’s what drove me to come back.

“I came back at Christmas and my little nephew was starting to walk and talk and stuff like that and it kind of got me.

“After that Christmas period when I returned to England I had a big think about things and the opportunity at the Titans came up and me being from south of Brisbane I took it with both hands.”
