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.”
