Manly Sea Eagles prop Taniela Paseka is set to miss the Sea Eagles' first three matches of the 2020 NRL season after undergoing surgery on his left ankle, the club announced on Monday.

The 22-year old suffered a syndesmosis ankle injury during the club's quarter-final loss at the NRL Nines on Saturday against the Gold Coast Titans.

He suffered the injury after a Gold Coast tackler awkwardly landed on his ankle during play.

With Paseka set to miss the next eight weeks, the Sea Eagles will also be without Tongan prop Addin Fonua-Blake until Round 4 and New South Wales representative lock Jake Trbojevic until Round 3 due to injuries.


  1. I think souths pack are in trouble esp if they get an injury or two. In that case they will probably apply to the souths friendly NRL to bring sam burgess back on $50k per year deal and the NRL will gladly approve it too.

  2. Thought this was a Manly article, once again our Easts mates with the BIG chip on their shoulder bud in on another topic, just can’t help yourself hey losers

  3. PanzyPenso how is it that Sydney who are defending back to back Premiers and defending World Club Champions be known as losers?

    It appears to all that the only people with chips on their shoulders are Souths fools like yourself.
    Lets face it panso, Souths forwards are weaker than last season & with Manly only missing one forward and a reserve off the bench at that. Souths indeed would easily get smashed by Manly’s good pack.

  4. Fancy a souffs hack criticising other clubs! My whole life of watching league only one club was always the losers South Sydney! 100,000 members 😂😂😂😂 and only 10,000 show up to games! Oh tell us souffs were exactly is your how ground? NavMan CANT FIND IT 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  5. ClownOfPenrifth I think every team would prefer to play soufths any time any where throughout the season with their pizz weak pack of forwards.
