No Sydney spot for Segeyaro

James Segeyaro will start at hooker for Papua New Guinea

Nine Sydney NRL clubs have passed up the chance to sign hooker James Segeyaro.

Segeyaro is looking for an NRL deal after his hasty exit from Leeds.

But with a large transfer fee of AUS$425,000 on him he will find it hard to land a new contract. According to The Daily Telegraph, Segeyaro won’t be playing Sydney.

The hooker had been linked with Cronull but Sharks chairman Lyall Gorman told the Sydney newspaper: “We have no interest in any player when they’re contracted to another club”.

“If that situation was to ever change, you’d look at your roster and test your appetite.

“In relation to transfer fees, they’ve become a major salary cap hurdle and management issue.

“Our general principle is we wouldn’t invest in players with a transfer fee attached to them.’’
