UPDATE: The NRL has agreed to allow James Segeyaro to train with the Sharks while negotiations between the player and the club continue, an NRL representative told Triple M.

It's understood the hooker won't be allowed to play against the Dragons this Sunday.

The 26-year-old returned from England in January from an extended off-season break, telling Australian media he did not want to return to Leeds.

The Rhinos had maintained Segeyaro was not for sale but invited offers from NRL clubs for their hooker.

Segeyaro made a big impact at the Rhinos after joining them, initially on loan, from Penrith in July last year, helping them win nine of their last 10 matches of the season to comfortably retain their Super League status.

The Papua New Guinea international officially took up a two-year contract in September, removing a get-out clause at the same time, but now will join champions Cronulla.
