‘Señor’ Sege­yaro drops plans for NRL re­turn

Rugby League Week - - Pre Game - PHIL WILKIN­SON

DE­SPITE BE­ING LINKED WITH A re­turn to the NRL next year, James Sege­yaro has no re­grets about his de­ci­sion to move to the UK — or ex­tend his con­tract.

The 28-year-old left Pen­rith mid­sea­son to join Leeds and helped last year’s tre­ble-win­ners avoid rel­e­ga­tion from Su­per League.

The PNG in­ter­na­tional has quickly be­come a fan favourite at Head­in­g­ley and has ex­tended his deal to the end of 2018.

“I’m just get­ting set­tled. At times it feels like I’m on hol­i­day as I’ve not been here that long,” Sege­yaro says.

“I need to have things to fill my af­ter­noons and hope­fully next year I can get back into my stud­ies. I’m hop­ing to learn Span­ish. Life in Eng­land is go­ing well, even if it’s dif­fer­ent from what I’ve been used to.”

The hard­est ad­just­ment has been find­ing suit­able food and cof­fee. “If you treat your palate like a mu­seum, it's go­ing to end up like one,” he adds.

“Noth­ing touches the palate but silk!”
