James Seyiaro arrives at Broncos to provide a back-up for Joker Turpine.


Bronco coach Anthony Seebold has outlined as the star aligned for the club to sign former Sharks rake James Seiyaro who has been set to keep the heat on Jake Turpin in the weeks ahead.

Seebold confirmed Segyaro would be joining Brisbane and playing in the side 17 in the wake of the 26-10 win over Manly.

Turpin, replacing Andrey McKulou, who is out with an MC injury, was outstanding against manly in an 80-minute performance of energy and violence.

"Initially we had the belief that Andrew McKoulou would need an operation that would last him for 10-12 weeks, and then we got some good news that he didn't need the operation and that he would just be out for six or seven. Weeks, "Seibold said.

"Young Jake Turpin, who was his third game of NRL and he had a great job playing 80 minutes of what he didn't do at this level.

"He was a little doubtful after training only this week, and our next option was Cori Paix who is an 18-year-old child and a development list player and we would have to apply for Dispensation, and with Cody Nikorima Follow me on our roster. "

Enter the former Panthers, Cowboys and Sharks hooker Segyaro, who played with Cronulla's feeder club Newtown in Canterbury Cup.

"Chico hasn't been able to play for the sharks this year, but he has a lot of nails and will be a great founder for Jake Turpin. We think he'll be in our 17 and share this role with Jake while Makka is out , "Sibold said.

"Hopefully it was only six weeks that Makka went out but in the interim we thought we had some support around Jake and Cori Paih who warmed up with us tonight.

"[Segeyaro] Is a spark out of the goat half and defensively aggressively. He had a bit of personality about him.

"He'll have to earn the trust of the group, himself and the coaching staff, but talk to him this afternoon he's up for it. He told me he always wanted to play for the Broncos so we would give him the opportunity."

The suspected serious knee injury suffered by Jack Bird in the win over Manchester could open the door for NSW center Roberts to play next week against the roasters after he was dropped off for Friday night's game.

Sibold said he was Avery, Roberts intended to stay at Brisbane despite his connection to southern Sydney and a breath for release.

"Jimmy didn't come to see me and ask to talk to other clubs, but that's okay. We have a quality replacement there in Jacob," he said.

"Jamaica Isacaco didn't play tonight or so we got a couple of options. Jimmy trained well in the week at our group of regenerates, which is the guys who didn't play tonight.

"Personally, I have no comments that Jimmie wants to leave but I understand it was speculation around him.

"It's a good challenge for anyone playing in the center, whether it's Jimmy, Miss." [Shibasaki] Or Jamaican.

"What I want to do was look at those areas we can be better off with, and then choose a team we are confronted with, which is Latrell Mitchell, which is the best left in the game."
