ASHLEY ALBERTS TO MAKE NRL DEBUT FOR SEA EAGLES
Dashing young Queensland centre Ashley Alberts will make his NRL debut for the Manly Sea Eagles in Saturday's Aussie Stadium clash against South Sydney.


Alberts has had a frustrating time returning to League after a shoulder reconstruction last year but has gradually worked his way back to peak fitness and a subsequent crack at the NRL.


Alberts has played several games in the Premier League and impressed with his speed and agility.A former Australian Junior Kangaroo,Alberts has played with North Queensland and the Brisbane Broncos.He was recommended to Manly by the club's assistant coach Dennis Moore.


With Ben Kennedy and Steve Menzies unavailable because of State of Origin selection,suspensions to props Kylie Leuluai and Brent Kite, a shoulder injury to Daniel Heckenberg and an injury to centre Terry Hill,the Sea Eagles are digging deep into their depth for the Rabbitohs clash.

Brett Stewart,Scott Donald,Ashley Alberts,Paul Stephenson,Chris Hicks,Michael Witt,Michael Monaghan (c),Jason King,Chad Randall,Mark Bryant,Sam Harris,Anthony Watmough,Luke Williamson,Replacements: Shayne Dunley,Phil Moorwood,Jim Curtis,Nathan Tutt.

YES! This kid had one of the best games i've seen from a centre in our club for a while against the cougar and this will be a very interesting game regarding our futures in this position. I can't wait for him to carve those dirty bunnies to shreads. Cant wait at all.

No mention of Ballin either - lots of injuries, suspensions and rep selections.

One of the reasons we were tipped for the spoon this year was because of depth. Time to stand up tall and show what we are made of!!

No mention of Cuthbo in either grade, possibly injured. If fit, he would probably have gotten a run.

Good point C_Eagle. I was thinking Cuthbo might get his first grade debut this week.

Good on Alberts. He will go well. The forwards will be a struggle though. We still should win.

How many injuries - we are worse off than the Dogs ATM.

Not confident at all this week

Tutt? He's pretty harmless. Like willow's slightly inferior twin brother.

Tutt goes OK. Nothing special but never seen him "fail".

Nothing wrong with Choc I imagine. Hopefully he can take his anger out on some Bunnies this weekend.
