Kevin Naiqama could join new club despite retirement call

St Helens centre Kevin Naiqama has confirmed he “would not say no” if an NRL club came in for him.

The Fijian international basically retired from the game following Saints’ 12-10 win over Catalans Dragons after putting in a Harry Sunderland Trophy winning performance, but that may not necessarily be the end.

He said:”I think I will be retiring. If I was carrying on, then I probably be staying here. It was a decision that was not made lightly, but it was the best decision for me and my family.

“All I wanted to do was my job and what I could to help us win.

“I was emotional because of so much. It was my last game as a professional player- that was where the emotion came from. It was a lot to process. I am a very emotional person, and I am not afraid to show it.

“If someone called I would not say no straight away. Woolfy (Kristian Woolf) knows the decision I took was for family, not for rugby. If they did call, I would explore and have a conversation.”
