    Of Tommy T, Gus said "I wouldn't want to force early retirement on Brett Stewart because (something like) he's one of my all time favourite players, but the sooner that young man gets to fullback, the sooner Manly begins their new era."
    Interesting.

    At the start of the season whilst I thought he was trying I was thinking is the step up week in and week out a bit too much? Then against the Sharks I started to see a lot more desperation in his play, and I thought this is really pleasing. Tonight I thought, 'he is a step away from having one of those games where he just murders the opposition.' Tonight he was sniffing around the ruck, made a great break and made plenty of metres there which had the rabbits forwards tiring and worried. He also made plenty of hitups in our end.

    In short he is really progressing. In the game day thread I said he is really becoming a man.

    Stewart looks done, old, slow and untreatening, time for the kid to get his shot.

    I love snake but Tom is an absolute gun and needs to touch the ball more. Tom needs to play for the blues this year aswell

    They could start by playing him in the centres. He needs more ball.

    You've got to be kidding. No way should Tom play for the Blues this year and we need him playing for us anyway. Jake should definitely be considered for the Blues but Tom is not in the equation yet.

    Tom T at the moment is considerably better that B Stewart, but Stewarts value in the line and directing defense is invaluable.
    Best we have both in, even if Tom is not fullback.

    That is a sound idea. He did play in the centres for the NSW under 16's so it is not a foreign position to him.

    Stewart is vital to this team, round 1&2 showed that, don't be so hasty to rush him out the door

    Tommy T still needs to get experience listening to Snake in defence and learning to replicate it.

    Once he does he'll get a run.

    Why can't he coz he is too young? He's the best winger in the comp and the best young talent in league why not!

    Do we not forget the 1st 2 weeks. Snake is our FB, Tom needs to be eased in.

    I'm not saying that Tommy's not going to be a brilliant number 1, but you could really see how much Snake missed having DCE out there tonight.

    He needs DCE to deliver the pass for him to find the space or create the overlap. Without him, he was forced to play in an unatural way.......and it showed.

    It's no coincidence we've looked a lot better when Brett has played this season. Let's not rush Tommy, he'll do some amazing things from the wing this season and that's all we should be asking of him at this time.

    we're talking about a 19 year old.

    If his genetics play a part he is going to be the fastest 6 foot + 100 kilo+ fastest ball playing fullback the game has ever seen.

    The last thing he needs is expectation so for the love of god anyone who has anything to do with the kid please step back and let immortal happen.

    The kids a freak. we're watching one of the legends in the making.

    B Stewart is a champion of our club BUT tonight he was poor.

    I know he has another year to go BUT I have to say I agree with GOD he looks old and slow.

    WHAT do we do now my feathered friends ?
