Biography:

After a strong 2016 season, Kevin Naiqama carried that form over to 2017 at Wests Tigers where he ended the year as the team's leading try-scorer with nine tries.

Showing his versatility by playing every position in the backs during the year (and on both sides of the field), Naiqama will return from World Cup duties with Fiji ready to make an impact again in 2018, having re-signed with the Club for another season midway through the year.

Naiqama will also likely cross the 100-game mark in 2018, currently on 93 career games.
