ASHLEY ALBERTS TO MAKE NRL DEBUT FOR SEA EAGLES

Reserve Grader
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.


Manly's NRL side to play South Sydney at Aussie Stadium on Saturday is:
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.


The PREMIER LEAGUE side to play South Sydney at Aussie Stadium on Saturday is:

The JERSEY FLEGG side to play South Sydney at Redfern Oval at 8 p.m. on Friday is:

Ashley was very impressive against the Panthers PL (sorry - Cougars) This is a good move at the right time.
