Segeyaro to learn fate on four-year drugs ban

Former Leeds hooker James Segeyaro will find out in two weeks if he still has a rugby league career.

The 29-year-old was suspended by the NRL last year after testing positive for the banned substance LGD-4033.

After a year away from the game, Segeyaro fronted the NRL anti-doping tribunal last Thursday in one final attempt to clear his name.

The PNG international claims he ingested Ligandrol via the blender he shared with his housemate in ­Brisbane last year.

Sports Integrity Australia recommend that Segeyaro is handed a four-year ban for returning a positive test for the substance.

The NRL anti-doping tribunal has the power to reduce that sanction if they believe there is no significant fault by the player.

Segeyaro, who has played in the NRL for Penrith, Cronulla and Brisbane, will now wait until October 20 to learn his fate.
