    Country's backline decimated - Lyon & Stewart

    Country's backline decimated

    April 28, 2008 NEW South Wales Country have been dealt a triple blow, with star backs Brett Stewart, Jamie Lyon and Matt Cooper all ruled out of Friday night's clash with City.

    Full-back Stewart (calf), and the centre pairing of Lyon (personal reasons) and Cooper (back) were all scratched at Monday morning's medical.

    Cronulla's Brett Kearney moves from the bench to full-back, while Joel Monaghan shifts from the wing to the centres. His centre partner will be North Queensland's Ben Harris.

    Sydney Roosters' Amos Roberts comes into the side on the wing while St George Illawarra utility Ben Hornby comes onto the bench.

    Good, the less Manly players involved the better.

    That only leaves Glen Stewart.........now I'm sure he can develop a niggle in something before Friday to get him out of this nothing game.

    I have a feeling some of these were pulled on purpose. City Country is a bit of a nuffie game, with the bye on we should be resting everyone
