Segeyaro cleared to train with Sharks

The Cronulla Sharks look set to finally get their man with reports that James Segeyaro has been cleared by the NRL to begin training with the club.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Segeyaro is in the final stages of getting a release from his contract with English Super League club Leeds. Once that paperwork is finalised, Segeyaro will be free to sign a deal with the Sharks.

It’s expected that Segeyaro will officially sign with the Cronulla club, possibly in the next 48-hours, until the end of 2018 andĀ could be available for their next match.

Young gun Jayden Brailey has been handling the hooking duties for the Sharks since the retirement of Michael Ennis at the end of last season.

Given Brailey’s early season form, Segeyaro could spend a few weeks playing NSW Cup to get match fitness before making his debut for the club.
