Viliame Kikau is heading to the Bulldogs next year, but his time as a Panther will always be fondly remembered by the club and their fans.
“I think that was the goal for myself personally,” he said of going out with a title.
“With a couple of us leaving, the boys sort of…we knew we just had to do the same thing that we have been doing the whole year. It has been working for us – that’s what we did.”
Kikau and Api Koroisau are two key cogs of this machine that will be heading elsewhere next year, and the former couldn’t say enough positive things about his now-former club.
“For myself, this club has done so much to me. The only way I could leave them is with another premiership and I’m happy we got the win.”
