SATURDAY OCTOBER 5 2019 SPORT 51 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Success can be costly THE good news for Burleigh appearing on the big stage tomorrow in the NRL state championship? The eyes of the nation and promise of NRL deals for some Bears talents. The bad news? The eyes of the nation and promise of NRL deals for some Bears talents. Welcome to the reality of an Intrust Super Cup club. Burleighs 2016 ISC triumph delivered a bounty of NRL deals to six players; there were similar hauls at the Northern Pride, Ipswich Jets and Redcliffe in their success. That figure could skyrocket again tomorrow should the Bears go one better and claim the NRL State Championship crown against Newtown at ANZ Stadium. Its an unpredictable reality club CEO Damian Driscoll is both used to and bracing for. The more successful we are the more players could go back into the NRL, he said. We think we are looking solid for next year (with our roster) but unlike the NRL these players cant just be replaced easily.The Bears Kurtis Rowe dives over to score a try during the Intrust Super Cup grand final against the Seagulls Picture: GETTY IMAGES AN UNFORGETTABLE Eager to explore the stunning sights of Lower South New Zealand?

Segeyaros welfare a worry after test RUGBY league great Johnathan Thurston says hes concerned for the wellbeing of former teammate James Segeyaro, after the off-contract Brisbane hooker tested positive to a banned substance. Segeyaro has been provisionally suspended by the NRL after the PNG international returned a positive Asample for Ligandrol, a nonsteroid anabolic agent popular with bodybuilders. The NRL said in a statement on Thursday Segeyaro was tested by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority on September 3. Thurston, who played with Segeyaro at North Queensland, said his primary concern was for the nine-season veterans mental health. First and foremost we need to check on his wellbeing, Thurston told reporters in Sydney yesterday. Hed just started to get his football back in check with the Broncos and this is a huge blow to him. After being pushed out of Cronulla due to the Sharks salary cap issues, Segeyaro was a mid-season recruit for Brisbane. Segeyaro reportedly has no idea how the substance got in his system and is going to ask for a B-sample to be tested.
