Sebastine Ikahihifo will join Salford Red Devils on a season long loan from Huddersfield Giants once again in 2021.
After helping the team reach a Coral Challenge Cup Final in his debut campaign with the Red Devils, supporters will be excited to see the former Super League Dream Team prop in action at the AJ Bell Stadium again next season.
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.
“In the middles we have Moose and he’s a great leader, always aggressive in defence and attack, and everyone listens when he speaks. He’s one of the best captains I’ve played with.”
He added: “We all give each other energy in the pack, off the back of each other’s carries.
“It will be great to have the crowd back to cheer us though. Hearing them really gives you a lift.”
Ikahihifo joins his former Giants teammate Oliver Roberts on loan with the Red Devils once again for the 2021 season, following their recent contract extensions.
Supporters can get behind them both, by purchasing 2021 season tickets early. Adult prices have been reduced across all areas, making it even more affordable to watch the pair in action. Further details can be found HERE.

Salford Red Devils 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.
“I was excited when we first brought him in and I’m sure all supporters can see why from his displays on the field, but what impressed me just as much, has been his contribution to our environment.
“On Oliver Roberts’ first day, I remember Seb made sure he was introduced to his new teammates, but also took him over to all the members of staff and introduced him to them.
“It’s that kind of character that we want involved at our club and I would therefore like to thank Richard Thewlis at Huddersfield for working with me on this deal.”
Sebastine Ikahihifo will be sponsored by Sparta Lightning services once again in 2021. Anyone interested in sponsoring other members of the 2021 squad, is advised to email: email@example.com
