    Article on the SMH website has Stewart tipped for stardom.
    With Mini and Hodgson not getting younger Stewart is tipped to take over the NSW fullback spot and put in a serious case for Aussie jumper possibly pushing Hunt out.
    This should be a big boost to Stewarts confidence and without Lokyer around i believe Hunt will find it difficult to force his way into the Aus side.

    Yep, he certainly has the potential to be a star. I think Inglas and Slater may trouble him for an Aussie spot though.

    But I can see him playing for NSW.

    Your right byso, Inglis is the top competitor as far as Stewart is concerned. Although he has a lot of improvment left in him. Either way, I think he could crack a wing spot too. I just can't believe how fast that bloke can move.

    He's excellent. A membership drive based around him would work.

    Your dead right mate, and thats what you need in origin. With so many ball players in the one team you need a fullback who can pop up anywhere and run like lightning.These are Two attributes that Stewart has.

    Slater is gone as far as i am concerned. A good player but too many indescretions. I do like Inglis. I just hope his stress fracture in his back is not the start of anything to serious.

    He would make a great story in regard to what he has to go through to even get on the field. I think it has been mentioned here before but I agree with you davidsheenan- a membership drive based around him would be a positive step.

    Brett Stewart is an absolute legend... i really love watching the bloke play altough he makes me feel bad as we are both the same age and i think he might just be doing a little bit more with his life than me :drunk: :drunk: :drunk: :drunk:

    Good on him!!

    While on the subject of emerging Rep Stars.... does Byso include Steve Bell as a player Des Hasler has turned into a Rep player??

    Considering he never played any rep footy before he was at Manly???
