Penrith hooker James Segeyaro says he will play against Melbourne on Monday night after being cleared of an ankle injury.

Penrith hooker James Segeyaro has declared himself fit to face Melbourne in Monday night’s NRL match just two days after it was feared he’d suffered a season-ending ankle injury.

The livewire No.9 left the field with a suspected broken ankle during Penrith’s 23-22 win over his former team North Queensland.

But Segeyaro took to Twitter on Wednesday to deliver some great news for Penrith, who already have a huge injury list.

“Just wanted to say thank you for everyone that tweeted me regarding my ankle…all is well and I’ll be ready for Monday night,” Segeyaro said.

Third-placed Penrith host the Storm who sit two points outside the top four.
