    Wasn't a bad player. Didn't hit the heights most of us expected. Just sad to hear he passed away so young.

    Cause of death was a quad bike accident, which happened in Darwin.

    Very sad to hear someone dying so young. I have good memories of watching him in the NYC, he looked like he had a big future back then.

    Anthony Griffin has his work cut out for him.
    I think dragons may get the spoon this year. They have a lot of troubles and I just don't see Griffin as the man to sort them out.
    Loosing mcInnes, the Izzy drama, de belin, Duffy contract issues, Norman fights and even trying to sign McCullough all makes me think there is big trouble ahead.

    Two ex-Panthers won boxing matches last night in Townsville. Craig Gower beat Matt Bowen in a unanimous non-hometown decision that has copped some criticism. Sandor Earl dropped Justin Hodges within 30 seconds, something that will please a few people I expect, but the latter continued to the finish only to lose anyway.

    A lot of people went off on the Gower decision. Didn't watch myself.

    Former Papuan New Guinean international James Segeyaro will be free to resume his playing career in June after he was handed a 20-month suspension by the NRL Anti-Doping Tribunal.

    Chaired by the Ian Callinan AC QC with panellists Dr Sharron Flahive and Sean Garlick, the triubnal found Segeyaro breached the NRL’s Anti-Doping Policy in September, 2019 when he tested positive to the presence of Di-Hydroxy LGD-4033 (Ligandrol).

    The tribunal found that the 30-year-old, who was playing for the Broncos at the time after stints with the Cowboys, Panthers and Sharks, bore a significant degree of responsibility for the positive result but ruled he had not intentionally taken the Ligandrol.

    It was likely to have entered his system via the use of a food blender maintained by a member of his household that contained residues of the substance.

    As the tribunal was satisfied that the doping was not intentional, Segeyaro was entitled to a reduced sanction under the WADA Code.

    His ban has been backdated to when he was provisionally suspended on October 3, 2019, which means he would be eligible to be registered again as a player on June 2.

    Happy to hear that Chicko hasn’t been rubbed out the game, plenty of teams that will be able to use a player like him in their squad!

    To be honest, I think Seggy would be very lucky to pick up another contract. He is a human wrecking ball.

    If a player like Matt Lodge currently has an NRL contract, anything James has done in his life wouldn’t even come close to that - I have no doubt he will get another contract and bring great value to whatever team does pick him up.

    Whataboutism. Doesn't matter what others have done. He was also done for PEDs.
