Having cleansed their roster of all its high-priced talent, it’s now time for the Bulldogs to commence their rebuild. One would expect that their salary cap situation would preclude them from signing any major name-brand players, but apparently that mightn’t necessarily be the case.
According to WWOS reporter The Mole, the Bulldogs are exploring the possibility of recruiting Sharks hooker James Segeyaro, and believe they could fit him into their new look squad.
Segeyaro has been in excellent form this year, and it’s unlikely that the Sharks would be willing to get into a bidding war for his services, given that he’s only the backup to Jayden Brailey anyway.
Whether or not he’d make the Bulldogs significantly better remains to be seen, but hey, they’ve got to start somewhere.
As long as it’s not a back-ended deal.
Segeyaro has played 133 first grade games for the Sharks, Panthers and Cowboys, and 5 Tests for Papua New Guinea.
