Segeyaro: My football will do the talking

“Seeing we’ve got plenty options in the hooking role from how the Hunters went this season, I’m just really pleased and excited to be back and part of this team.

“No disrespect to the previous teams, but I think this one of the best PNG teams selected,” said Segeyaro.

Segeyaro added he has settled well into camp and the team is raring to go.

In response to the backlash from many Papua New Guineans over his decision to never play for the Kumuls again, the 27 year old from Eastern Highlands and East New Britain said everyone has a right to an opinion.
