Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs are looking to sign a marquee player for 2019, and have set their sights on James Segeyaro, according to The Mole.

The off-contract hooker is yet to sign a new deal with his current team, the Cronulla Sharks, with the Dogs starting to circle.

Segeyaro, 27 years of age, has been at the centre of controversy in recent years, but there’s no denying the talent he possesses.

The Sharks have two up and coming hookers in brothers Jayden and Blayke Brailey, therefore suggesting Segeyaro could be forced out of the shire.

The Dogs would benefit greatly from having an experienced hooker such as Segeyaro at the club, as they have struggled to fill the position in recent years.

Michael Lichaa hasn’t exactly made the role his own, while halfback Jeremy Marshall-King has been the makeshift hooker over the past few weeks.

Segeyaro could be a great pick up for Canterbury as they look to cement a playing roster for 2019 following salary cap dramas which have plagued a horrid 2018 campaign.

  1. With peter Wallace retiring why don’t the Panthers make a play for him. He use to play for them and is in awesome form, his wages wouldn’t be that much

  2. Great player but not a starter. Can’t play an effective 80 minutes so he’s a benchy at best. If a club signs him you have to have 2 going into each match. Not worth it when there are other greats 9s off contract this year and next who can maintain the 80.

    • Yeah I thought 2020 was the earliest they could look at someone ?? Maybe the media beat up how much trouble they were in or maybe they’ve got more players to shed yet ? Lichaa was the saviour…then he was hamstrung by dessy…. then the saviour again… then didn’t for dean pays’ coaching model. Feel sorry for him a bit… just let him play. As for Segeyaro…. I’ve always had a question mark with him … brilliant at times but then goes missing.
