Giants continue to make squad changes

Sebastine Ikahihifo has moved to Salford Red Devils on a one-year loan

Huddersfield Giants have continued to amend their 2020 BetFred Super League squad by releasing prop forward Sebastine Ikanihiho on a season long loan to Salford. 

The 28 year old played 18 games last year in the Claret and Gold, Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis said “Our squad and staff will continue to evolve over the coming weeks as we work towards the start of the 2020 season. 

"The signing of Samoan International James Gavet and emergence of Oliver Wilson and Jon Luke Kirby into the first team front row alongside our established players gave us the depth to enable Sebastine to be released. 

"The arrangement is only for a year and both Sebastine and ourselves hope that a fresh start can reignite him to the form that took him into the 2017 Dream Team. He is a fans favourite here and am sure will soon establish himself as such at Salford and it is another step for us in putting together the 2020 squad that has been planned by Simon and his team.”
