    The sexual assault case against NRL star Brett Stewart has been adjourned until next month to allow police to collect more evidence.

    Stewart, 24, the former poster boy of the NRL, was not required to attend when his case was briefly mentioned at the Downing Centre Local Court this morning.

    The Manly star and former Test fullback has pleaded not guilty to one count of sexual intercourse without consent and one count of indecent assault following an alleged incident which occurred after the club's season launch in Manly on March 6.

    During the alleged assault police claimed Stewart "forced his tongue" into the 17 year old's mouth.

    Stewart's lawyer, Ian Byrne, told the court he had received eight items from the police brief but was still waiting on four.

    These included phone records and statements from a police officer and two other people, he said.

    The alleged victim's lawyer, Nana Frishling, told the court she had no objections against Stewart's legal team seeing documents relating to her health from Royal North Shore hospital.

    The case was adjourned until June 23.

    It looks like the case is back in court on Tuesday. Hopefully it will be thrown out.
