Salford confirm prop forward’s departure

Now that the regular season is over, those not involved in the end of year play-offs have already begun turning their attention to 2022.

Lots of movement is expected over the next few months as clubs look to assemble the squads they hope will take them to the next level next year.

Salford are no exception and plenty of change is set to sweep through the Red Devils prior to the opening round of Super League XXVII. At present they’re desperately trying to sign Ken Sio down to a new deal whilst the likes of Krisnan Inu have already confirmed they won’t be at Salford next season.

Inu’s exit has now been followed by another. This morning the club confirmed that prop Seb Ikahihifo would be returning to Huddersfield after two years on loan with the Red Devils.

The former New Zealand Warriors prop played his part in Salford’s remarkable journey to Wembley last year and featured in the final defeat to Leeds coming off the bench and challenging the Rhinos pack.

A member of the 2017 Super League Dream Team, he’s now headed back to Huddersfield in 2022 where he’ll reunite with former Salford boss Ian Watson as the Giants look to fulfil their potential next term.

Speaking to the club website today, he only had good things to say about the Red Devils: “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.”

Meanwhile, Head Coach Richard Marshall thanked him for his service: “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.”
