Not that I recall. I presume he was making more than a bench utility would given he was supposed to be the Dragons fullback until his horrific performance against Cronulla in 2016. Maybe I'm giving Newcastle too much credit, but I don't think they'd be crazy enough to spend so much money on a player that they'd have to justify his pay-packet and play him in a key position. I presume Brown just saw something in Mann's game, is desperate for a dummy half and is prepared to roll the dice on him. It really speaks volumes of Segeyaro's character that he simply wasn't approached.
