Coach Geoff Toovey has named a strong side for the Sea Eagles’ season opener against the Storm at Brookvale Oval on Saturday night.

Recruits Josh Starling, Dunamis Lui and Cheyse Blair are set to make their debuts for the club after Toovey included the trio in the side.    

Wingers David Williams and Jorge Taufua have failed to overcome knee and shoulder injuries respectively and will miss Saturday night’s blockbuster.

Peta Hiku and Blair will line up on the edges, while Jesse Sene-Lefao returns to the side for the first time since round one last year after an impressive pre-season.

Front rower Jason King has also failed to recover in time and will miss the clash with an ongoing shoulder injury.
