Littlejohn joined the Tigers at the end of 2015 from Manly. The utility made 16 appearances for the club before a move to Super League side Salford at the end of last year.

The 2017 campaign was certainly difficult one at Leichhardt.

Coach Jason Taylor forced captain Robbie Farah out, then Taylor was sacked in March to be replaced by Ivan Cleary and local juniors Mitchell Moses and Aaron Woods both departed.

Littlejohn described the Tigers last year as a "debacle".

"We were down the bottom of the ladder," he told Inside Sport.

"In my second year when JT [Jason Taylor] got the sack early, had a new coach coming in, players moving around, obviously Robbie Farah got shifted out. It was just a debacle really.

"We were all sitting back watching it. It was just a bit of a circus there sometimes."

The 26-year-old is hoping for calmer times and to garner a regular spot in Salford's halves in the UK this season.

"I want to cement that spot but we’ll have to wait and see what the coach has in mind," Littlejohn said.

"Super League's going to be different [compared with the NRL]. I just want to help Salford become a strong club this season and in the years to come.”
