Threat for Hill JASON AVEDISSIAN 14jun05 MANLY assistant coach Dennis Moore believes rookie centre Ashley Alberts is putting the heat on Terry Hill as the veteran aims for a return to the starting line-up next weekend. Alberts made a strong debut in Manly colours in Saturday night's heavy loss to South Sydney at Aussie Stadium. Sea Eagles insiders were privately enthusiastic about Alberts' performance, with Moore prepared to admit the young Queenslander is capable of holding his spot for Sunday's clash with Newcastle at Brookvale, despite the availability of Hill. "Having him put his hand up puts pressure on everyone, whether they are centres or wingers," Moore said yesterday. "I think for a bloke that's played as little footy as he (Alberts) has, it was a good debut. "He showed some good signs." Hill, who has missed Manly's last two outings with a groin strain, is available for selection tonight. The Sea Eagles will also welcome back Brent Kite from suspension and Origin pair Ben Kennedy and Steve Menzies if they come through tomorrow night's Origin unscathed. Captain Michael Monaghan is another expected to be named tonight by coach Des Hasler, despite the half suffering a bicep injury in Saturday night's loss. "It's coming along slowly but it should be right," Monaghan said. "It's just something I have to put up with." Monaghan described the historic loss, Manly's biggest defeat to the Rabbitohs in 55 years, as "disappointing". "We knew right through the week it was going to be a danger game," the skipper said. "We have to get over it pretty quickly because Newcastle will also be desperate." Pending tomorrow night's Origin, the Knights will welcome back a host of stars led by inspirational half Andrew Johns, hooker Danny Buderus and forward Steve Simpson. * Manly CEO Pat Wilson has refuted suggestions the Sea Eagles are still looking to sign Melbourne's Matt Orford, despite securing Michael Monaghan last week. "We are happy to have signed a top-quality player like him," Wilson said. Wilson said Manly would target "one or two" players come July 1.
