    Manly Brett Stewart out on top as No.1 tryscoring fullback

    Manly Brett Stewart out on top as No.1 tryscoring fullback ahead of 200th game for Sea Eagles
    DEAN RITCHIE THE DAILY TELEGRAPH SEPTEMBER 17, 2014

    ON the eve of his 200th NRL game, Brett Stewart is now simply the best.

    The Daily Telegraph can reveal that Stewart has the greatest tryscoring strike-rate of any fullback in rugby league's 106-year history.

    Stewart has crossed 145 times in 199 appearances for Manly at a remarkable strike-rate of 0.729 tries a game.

    No other fullback in the game - past or present - can top Stewart, whose tryscoring exploits will be desperately needed for the Sea Eagles's elimination semi-final against Canterbury at Allianz Stadium on Saturday night.

    Quite simply. Watching Snake play is like poetry in motion.

    Congratulations on 200 games and for all the years of enjoyment you have given the fans. Long may it continue!

    This statement stood out to me ,

    "It is a great honour to play 200 games for this club, it is also an elimination final so I am really excited for both," he said.

    Yes, 145 magic tries just two behind Bozo who scored 147 for two clubs. Slater's ratio is more like 63 % and he is and was always such a grub. Did you see him 'innocently stick knees into the back of that Dogs players as he lay on the ground? "But its not his go". Protected Species. :mad:

    There is NO comparison. Snake for my money edged out Wombat some time ago. But of course different eras, different styles. Only Beaver in front of Snake now for 1 club Manly tryscorers.
    Only Hazem El,, Slater and Ettingshausen in front for all 1 club tryscorers.

    Imagine what he would have had if not for the injuries and the off field garbage. Such a shame.

    Billy Slater is a great player, but this rubbish people go on with that 'it's not his go' is just laughable. He is one of the dirtiest players in the league. Geez they had to change the rules about sliding in with knees and feet because of how often he did it.

    That's where the Ch.9 commentary just lose me when they speak of some of these players. Let's compliment his fantastic ability, and busyness (is that even a word?) around the ball, but let's not deify him.

    It really is a pity with Snakes injuries, because he could have been the 1 person to catch Ken Irvine.

    I have been blessed to see most of Wombat's career, all of Ridgey's and now all of Brett's.
    Wow, what a trio of legends.

    Brett takes the cake as the best for mine, what a truly great career so far, the true Prince of Brookvale.

    Congrats Snake on your 200th and may you play many more for the mighty Sea Eagles.

    Spot on.

    I'd love to see their try assists stats as they've got older.

    I have no doubt that if he wasn't curtailed by injury and lost a year due to court matters he would be up there with the all time greats - and he should be.

    As the stats stand, he's up there in strike rate but it it really irks me that he and Slater aren't going at it as the best of the current (modern) era in regards to tries scored.

    So true.

    Apart from Beaver, getting the masses on their feet there is no better.

    I must be the same era of 'forever young' as you. I saw some of Wombat's, all Ridgey's -we still miss his goal kicking, and all of the Snake's.
    Have to say Snake is a personal favourite. I've made that obvious on here over the years but the guy's a freak on the football field.
    He needs to stay Maroon and White forever.
    The Prince of Brookvale should never play in other colours.

    And brother Glenn, I know this is divided but I would have been amongst those who kept him. Older players are susceptible to injuries but their leadership inspires the young. Look at the way Justin Hodges played last Saturday. I can't stand the bloke but despite his age and long history of injuries he was the one who took back control and put his body on the line for the donkeys. Think of Joe.G, BK, Brent Tate, Lote.
    A fired up older player can ignite a team.

    Stay Manly SNAKE. We love you.
