Former Leeds Rhinos star available to Super League clubs immediately

James Segeyaro is one of the most controversial figures in recent Leeds Rhinos history despite only spending a brief period at Headingley.

The hooker joined the club late in 2016 as Zak Hardaker left the club. The hooker was quick to make an impact and was soon a fan favourite and agreed a deal to stay at the club long term.

However, in the winter the hooker pulled out of his contract due to home sickness. Leeds went on to bring in Matt Parcell and he would score a record number of tries for a hooker in a Super League season.

Segeyaro went on to join Bradford Bulls last year after a stint in France and was supposed to join Western Suburbs Devils but has pulled out of the move.

This leaves him available to Super League clubs. After the injury to Bill Leyland, a move for Segeyaro would be ideal for London Broncos if they could find space for him in their overseas quota and salary cap.

Club ease blow of former Leeds Rhinos star’s U-turn

Former NRL journeyman Tautau Moga has eased this blow for the Western Suburbs Devils signing for the club after a stint with St George Illawarra Dragons.

After playing NRL first grade last season, Moga has linked up with the Devils who compete in the Mojo Holmes Illawarra Cup.

According to reports, before his decision to play for the Devils, the outside back was on the radar of several Super League clubs as late as October 2023 but a move to the UK never materialised.

Moga is a former Australian Schoolboy representative in 2010 and Under 20 Queensland player in 2012. He was set to become the youngest Sydney Roosters debutant in 73 years in 2011 if the NRL hadn’t brought in a new rule into place barring players under the age of 18 from playing at first-grade level.

He has also represented Samoa at international level and is set to become one of the stand out players in the Mojo Holmes Illawarra Cup.
