      THE Sea Eagles have suffered a setback ahead of the NRL season kick off with backrower Tom Symonds to be sidelined for between four and six weeks.

      He was another casualty from the Auckland Nines co[​IMG]mpetition last weekend, injuring his back.

      “It is a similar sort of thing to what Brett Stewart did,” said Sea Eagles coach Geoff Toovey.

      The back problem sidelined the star Manly fullback for an extended period last year.

      Symonds joined the Sea Eagles at the start of the 2013 season after being granted a release by the Sydney Roosters.

      After making his spectacular debut for his new club in the NSW Cup he then established himself as a regular member of the Sea Eagles NRL squad.

      Symonds’ injury creates an opportunity for players like rising forward James Hasson.

      The Sea Eagles yesterday named an extended squad for tomorrow night’s trial with Parramatta art Brookvale Oval.

      The squad is: B Stewart, J Taufua, P Hiku, T Satini, K Foran, D Cherry-Evans, J Starling, M Ballin,

      B Lawrence, A Watmough, J Horo, J Hasson, C Blair, J Sene-Lefao, J Buhrer, D Lui,

      J Hodges, J Littlejohn, G Stewart, C Gutherson, M Iosefa, J Trbojevic, L Sao, S Palmer, D Berryman, M O’Dare, M Ikuvalu, D Reardon, M Manson.

      He just cant catch a break. He seems to be copping a fair few injuries, both before and since joining us. He is a great talent too

      :( The Dragon is such a well balanced runner - I can't believe that he has another long stint on the sideline :angel:

      Well at least it makes selections for our bench in the first few games a lot clearer.

      Buhrer, Lui, Hasson and Starling will now be the bench.

      I would've thought Jake T would be in the running too.
      Let's see how Saturday goes first.

      You're assuming King will be good to go.

      I'd like to see Hiku in the 17. I know it's not standard to have a reserve back but, imo, having three front rowers on the bench is over-kill.

      Yes assuming King starts with Lawrence. If not then probably Starling to start instead of King and Sao to come into the bench. A big worry if one or two props get inured during the year.

      The club will hold Jake back a fair bit during 2014 and 2015 will be his year to be a regular first grader.

      I am hearing Jake will be getting a lot of game time this season and then become the regular Prop, he and Lawrence are my two picks.

      Hearing the same thing, that's why they didn't risk him at the 9's tournament. Turbo is rated ahead of Lui, Andrews and Sao.

      You blokes have obviously watched a lot of Andrews then? Donny will work wonders with Tyson's fitness. I don't know how you can judge a blokes worth by watching him play a few minutes of a trial game. I'm not saying he is better than Jake, but I can't write him or Lui or Sao off. While some on here are hoping that our young blokes come good this year, I'm kind of expecting it. Either way, it will be very interesting.

      Round 1 always seems to throw up a surprise or 2.

      Good news is, rangas have super powers and heal quickly. I know this due to being a proud parent of a lovely redhead.
