Brett Stewart back for Raiders Brookie clash with Josh Dugan 29/04/2011 12:52:00 PM Manly coach Des Hasler says Brett Stewart will return to football on Monday week against the Canberra Raiders at Brookvale Oval. Hasler says he made the call not to take Stewart to Townsville for the clash with the Cowboys. â€œThere is no need to take any risks with Brett. He needs to be right and his hamstring problem will benefit greatly in the next 10 days before the raiders game. â€œThere is nothing sinister in what we are doing and it has been a team decision of the medical and coaching staff to hold him back. â€œBrett is frustrated but he knows he has a whole season ahead of him. The rumours about his knee being a problem are way off target as he will soon prove. â€œI am happy with his progress and there is no need to rush,â€ Hasler said. Hasler will again use teenage sensation Will Hopoate at fullback in Stewartâ€™s absence. And Hasler is deep in discussion with the 18 year oldâ€™s management about his future. â€œI am happy with the talks â€“ he doesnâ€™t want to leave and we donâ€™t want him to leave. I am confident he will remain a Sea Eagle,â€ Hasler said.
