    IT took no time for the Stewart brothers to agree to a surprise visit down to the War Veterans Nursing Home at Collaroy Plateau.

    Brett and Glenn Stewart were surprise guests at the War Vets Nursing Home in Collaroy.

    IT took no time for the Stewart brothers to agree to a surprise visit down to the War Veterans Nursing Home at Collaroy Plateau.
    Glenn and Brett made the visit at the request of Sea Eagles co-owner Max Delmege who, along with former Tiger Ben Elias, was involved in a little get-together at the home.
    On the morning of the visit, Delmege made the call to the Stewarts, both agreeing to drop in for a visit at a moment’s notice.
    “They are just beautiful boys,” Delmege told us this week. “To come down and meet and greet those elderly people made their day. They are just great people.”
    War Vets nurse Samantha Green said the Stewarts’ visit was memorable. “They knew an hour before the time and they dropped what they were doing and came up to the function and supported the older generation of people,” she said.
    THE coaching future of Marlins mentor Phil Blake should be sorted soon, with the exit door a real possibility.
    Our mail is Blakey could move on, despite Manly’s desire to keep him.
    The ex-Sea Eagle has impressed Wallabies coach Robbie Deans during his guest coaching appearances with the national squad over the past couple of weeks.
    Blakey has already told us of his desires to coach at the next level, so don’t be surprised if the 2010 season was his last at Manly.
    THE Sea Eagles are looking likely to play in the NSW Cup next year, with the club’s inclusion in the competition up for discussion at this week’s board meeting.
    Manly’s current NRL feeder team is based on the Sunshine Coast.
    While the Caloundra experiment has been successful in many ways, there is a growing push for a Manly team to be based right here in Sydney under the NSW Rugby League banner.
    It only makes sense and would obviously save the club thousands of dollars.
    Expect it to happen with club legend Cliffy Lyons as the coach.
    SEA Eagles back-rower Anthony Watmough is backing Manly fullback Brett Stewart to make a successful return to the game in 2011.
    Stewart has spent the majority of the past two seasons sidelined with a knee injury.
    But Watmough is convinced the “Snake” will have no worries coming back next year, fully fit, with his mind at ease after a traumatic 18 months off the paddock.
    “We’ve seen what he did when he first came from injury, he scored five tries in two games and really tore teams apart,” Choc told us this week. “He will be fit and ready to go. Snake’s a good man, a good kid.”
    MANLY CEO Graham Lowe is off to New Zealand tomorrow for a couple of days.
    It’s not just an R&R trip back home. Lowey has several business engagements, with finding a major sponsor for the Sea Eagles among them.
    The hard-working Manly boss spent last night at Manly Warringah Leagues Club as a guest of the Narraweena Hawks’ presentation evening.
    WHILE Tony Williams will not play a role for the Tongans on the field in next week’s Test against Samoa, the Sea Eagles giant will still play a part.
    “T-Rex” has now aligned himself with Australia, ruling him out of both the Tongan and New Zealand squads.
    But Tonga coach Charlie Tonga still wants the big man involved.
    “As much as I’d like to have him play for the Tongans, he’s not eligible after he chose to play for Australia,” Tonga said.
    John Hopoate and son Will also plan to be involved this week.
