Cowboys' Segeyaro set to add some spark

Segeyaro_James JAMES SEGEYARO [pictured] will become only the third PNG player to represent the North Queensland Cowboys in a National Rugby League match when he makes his debut against the Melbourne Storm on Monday night.

The 20-year-old hooker was named on the interchange bench by coach Neil Henry, in place of Ben Jones.

A former Cairns junior, but born in Goroka, Segeyaro will join Bruce Mamando, who played two games for the Cowboys in 2000 and 2001, and Graham Appo, who made 15 appearances in 2000, as PNG players who have played an NRL game for North Queensland.

Segeyaro has made his way into the Cowboys’ side earlier than he had originally hoped after undergoing a shoulder reconstruction at the end of last season.

He had finished 2010 as the captain of the Cowboys’ Toyota Cup team which made the finals series, and enhanced his prospects for an NRL call-up by scoring two tries in the Intrust Super Cup last weekend.

“I just think that he’ll add a bit of spark,” coach Neil Henry said of Segeyaro. “He’s extremely happy. He’s been in our system a while and he’s a local boy as well.”
