The three rising Sea Eagles who are stepping up to the NRL October 5, 2015 2:40pm Jon GeddesManly Daily Eagles Tom Trobojevic scores a try during the 2015 Holden Cup Grand final between the Penrith Panthers and the Manly Sea Eagles at ANZ Stadium.Picture Gregg Porteous THEIR grand final dream is over and now a whole new football challenge is about to start for Sea Eagles outstanding under 20 stars Tom Trbojevic, Liam Knight and Addison Demetriou. The talented trio have been called up into Manly’s NRL squad and will start commence preparations under the new regime of incoming coach Trent Barrett when the players regroup at the start of next month. They all made an impact as the young Eagles went down 34-18 to the powerful Penrith Panthers in Sunday’s Holden Cup grand final played in stifling 35 degree heat at ANZ Stadium. “We start training November the second and I am really keen,” said 20-year- old frontrower Knight, who scored a terrific second half try running like a three-quarter. “I’ll have a bit of a break, a couple of weeks off, refresh the body and really rip into pre-season.” Manly's Liam Knight during the grand final against Penrith. Picture: Gregg Porteous Departing coach David Heath likened Knight to Manly prop Jake Trbojevic who has been labelled a future State of Origin forward. “Liam is a standout from a workrate point of view,” Heath said. “I think he is very similar to Jake Trbojevic, Jake used to play 80 minutes at the 20s level and pump the same kind of stats out that Liam does.” Tom Trbojevic has already displayed his talent playing in the NRL this season. Demetriou is an interesting character, a real powerhouse full of potential who started in the frontrow this season and ended up in the centres. “I think he needs to do a lot of hard work, he has been in and out of different clubs,” Heath said. “It (joining the NRL squad) will be good, he will be training with men and that’s what he needs to do.” The big question is what position he would be best suited. Perhaps it will be as a forward in the Paul Gallen mould.
