Broncos pick up Segeyaro

James Segeyaro will join the Broncos immediately in a bid to reignite his NRL career.

Fox Sports reported that currently contracted to the Sharks’ feeder-club the Newtown Jets, the 28-year-old has been released from his one-year contract to join Brisbane for the remainder of the season.

Segeyaro’s signing comes at a crucial time with Brisbane hooker Andrew McCullough out with a knee injury.

McCullough will miss six to eight weeks, after suffering an MCL injury at Broncos training.

Segeyaro’s move to Queensland gives him the opportunity to play behind a much hyped young Broncos’ forward pack.

With McCullough on the sidelines, Broncos coach Anthony Seibold could opt to start Segeyaro to give his side some much needed spark out of dummy-half.

Segeyaro has played 141 first grade games for the Cowboys, Panthers and Sharks since making his debut in 2011, scoring 36 tries.

The international rake also has five appearances for Papua New Guinea.

Segeyaro was without a club before signing with the Sharks on a one-year-deal in February. However due to salary cap issues Segeyaro was removed from the club’s top-30 roster.

Segeyaro was recently re-instated to the top 30, but was considered the third hooker option at the club behind Jayden and Blake Brailey.

He was never given a chance to play for the Broncos in Magic Round, but will link up with his new Brisbane teammates at training this week ahead of a Round 10 clash with the Roosters.
