New Salford signing Sebastine Ikahihifo has pledged to “run hard and tackle hard” after joining on a season-long loan from Huddersfield.

The prop is eager to rediscover the form that saw him named in the Super League Dream Team two years ago.

He said: “I’m looking forward to coming into a new environment. Speaking to Ian Watson, I know he values culture and a team bond.

“I know he’s brought a lot out of players like Tui (Lolohea) and (Krisnan) Inu, and I’m determined to work hard, so I’m sure I can get back to my best form.

“I’m looking forward to getting a full preseason and getting my fitness back to it’s best.

“Greg Brown has a good reputation, so it will be good to work with him ahead of 2020.

“Fans can expect me to run hard and tackle hard next season.

“With that aggression, things happen. Bringing energy to the field will create offloads and tackle breaks, so other players can play off it.”

Ian Watson said: “Seb’s a great addition to our squad and will make our pack even more formidable this season, working alongside the likes of (Lee) Mossop, (Gil) Dudson and (Pauli) Pauli.

“He’s a player who I’ve been chasing for a number of seasons. His power and pace has always impressed when playing for the Giants.

“Your pack have to have an attitude to work hard defensively and take tough carries and Seb certainly enjoys that side of the game.

“He’s an an awesome bloke off the field, who’s keen to come into our environment, so I know Seb and his family will enjoy their time at Salford.”
