Just heard that Brett Stewart will undergo knee surgery thus Friday and will be out for 2 - 3 months
there goes the season. 5th is a distant dream and we will likely end up finishing outside the 8. Time to start blooding some youngsters in the halves IMO and perhaps start looking for a proper replacement in the fullback position. Robbo is not going to be a good option back there
F*******************************************CK Stewart out for three months April 21, 2009 Manly fullback Brett Stewart will undergo knee procedure on Friday and will be out of action for eight to 12 weeks. Stewart injured his knee in the second half of last Saturday's NRL match against South Sydney at ANZ Stadium - his second game in the premiership this season.
NRL enforced 'knee surgery'.
We're fcuked. Obviously.
Time to start planning for 2010 - forget this year it is as good as gone. If we make the Top 8 consider it a good season.
welcome aboard. I said this the other day. In my view if Wolfman is back then the least disruption to the backline would have Bani in fullback and Robbo and wolfman on the wings. Whilst we can we should start blooding players in the halves and forwards Bring Hargraves and Foran or Hodgkinson, give all 3 of the halves a run over the next 8 weeks
I still wouldn't blood in the halves until we lose the next 3 straight. Then go ahead. Blood away.
great. Media will be calling it 'karma' argh...... season over.
why was he still playing when the game was over. I was screaming at the tv.. take him off! For precaution. Doubt it would still make much difference.. but by playing on it.. couldnt of made it better. Argh. So frustrating.
i'm heartbroken. i don't know what to say. i can't think of any positives
We'll get to see Neumann again
We'll get to see Neumann again [/quote] I think i just had a small tear..
Blood the under 20 fullback do not I repeat DO NOT play Robbo at Fullback. Robbo maybe a good winger but he is not a fullback.
Terrible luck for Stewy and just plain ****house for Manly. How would Bani go at Fullback??
I'd like to see Suniula (spelling?) back, he was going alright until his hand got injured. Â Robbo looks to be the only choice at fullback really, i don't think Williams or Bani can read the game as well as Robbo (experience counts here). Man... no doubt we'll be firming up for the Spoon in the markets. Â Our record is 0-4 without Stewart. Â I know we've won without him before AND we're going better with injuries now but with 8-12 games without him... Anyone think this could be smoke and mirrors? Â I know guys had reports like this (long absence) but then only spent just over a month out?? Â Current random prediction: 12th
Des hasn't taken a risk with young players in 5 seasons, cant see him starting now
One more thing - i hate Souths even more now.
Can this season get any worse?
