Ikahihifo to return to Giants

by | Sep 18, 2021

Salford Red Devils can confirm that loanee Seb Ikahihifo will return to Huddersfield Giants for 2022, after two seasons with us.

The 30-year-old arrived at the AJ Bell Stadium ahead of the 2020 season and helped Salford reach their first Challenge Cup Final in 51 years.

Ikahihifo, who made 28 appearances in a Salford shirt, said: “I’ve had a great two years here at Salford, I’ve really enjoyed playing in front of the Salford faithful who have been behind me and the team every single time we run out.

I feel like I’ve developed my game a lot here, and I’d like to thank everyone involved at the club for the last two seasons.”

Salford Red Devils head coach Richard Marshall commented: “Seb has been a valued member of our squad, his impact off the bench for the team was superb.

“He always gave 100 % and certainly left everything out on the field. We understand the move to Huddersfield suits both parties and we wish him well with the giants.”

Director of rugby and operations Ian Blease added: “I thank him for his two years of effort playing for the Red Devils. I believe we have developed him as a player and given him time to change his game and progress with us.

“I’d also like to thank Richard Thewlis and the Giants for allowing us to work with Seb these past two seasons.”
