Out of Monday’s match … James Segeyarro. Penrith hooker James Segeyaro will miss Monday night’s clash with Melbourne following the death of his father, former Papua New Guinea international, Iffysoe Segeyaro.
James flew to PNG on Thursday to be with his father after he suffered an aneurysm and passed away on Friday.
Veteran Kevin Kingston trained at dummy half in Penrith’s final training session on Sunday morning and will play his first game in the NRL since round eight against Cronulla.
It is unclear when Segeyaro will return to training, but it is understood he should be back in time for next Sunday’s clash with Manly at Brookvale Oval.
When James was six years old, Iffysoe sent his mother, three sisters and one of his two brothers to Cairns in a bid to escape the dangers of their native land.
Earlier in the year James opened up about his relationship with his father, thanking him for the sacrifices he made to provide his family with a better life than the one they could have had back home.
“He wanted a better future for us,” Segeyaro told Fairfax Media at the start of the season.
“He sacrificed a fair bit for us to make sure we were safe and grew up with an education. I didn’t get the father-son relationship most kids do growing up. As a young kid, I barely saw my dad because he was working, so I’d only get to see him once a month. As the years continued, I rarely ever saw him.”
