‘Señor’ Segeyaro drops plans for NRL return
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!”
