Sydney Roosters juniors are as rare as, well, hen's teeth, but it is one dressed in enemy colours threatening to spoil the party on Sunday night.

Essentially let go by the club to help accommodate big off-season recruits Sonny Bill Williams and Michael Jennings, Tom Symonds has found a home for himself coming off the bench for Manly - the Roosters' opponents in Sunday's NRL grand final.

Born in Paddington and playing his junior football for Bondi United, they don't get much more Roosters junior than Symonds.

But with the arrival of Williams and emergence of Boyd Cordner along with holdovers Aidan Guerra, Mitch Aubusson and Frank-Paul Nuuausala, Symonds knew his best chance of a top grade start lay elsewhere.

And so he found a club willing to take him in just days before the start of the season in Manly - and he hasn't looked back since.
