Retired NRL champion Brett Stewart will face court after being charged with cocaine possession on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
The former Manly Sea Eagles superstar was charged after being searched by police who were patrolling the streets of Manly on a Friday night last month.
The Saturday Telegraph understands the officers allegedly spotted the 38-year-old fullback either during, or just after, a transaction to obtain the drug.
Stewart, a two-time premiership winner, was spotted by the officers in the vicinity of Eustace St, near Manly Wharf, at 7pm on March 10.
The police observations of Stewart led them to become suspicious enough to search him and they allegedly found him in possession of cocaine.

A NSW Police holding statement about the charge said Stewart will face Manly Local Court on April 19.
“Just before 7pm (on March 10), officers from Northern Beaches Police Area Command were conducting patrols of the Manly area, when they spoke to a 38-year-old man,” a NSW Police spokesman said.
“During a search of the man, they allegedly located cocaine,” the spokesman said.
Police did not reveal the weight of cocaine they will allege Stewart had possession of but it was a relatively small amount, given that possession charges relate to less than three grams of cocaine.

Police will send the substance for testing if Stewart pleads not guilty once the court case begins.
The Saturday Telegraph tried to contact Stewart through his manager George Mimis.
Stewart was a fan favourite at Brookvale, alongside his brother Glenn.
Known as Snake because he is a type 1 diabetic and needed to keep a bag of lollies nearby at all times, Stewart won premierships with Manly in 2008 and 2011 and played in the 2007 and 2013 grand finals.

He played 233 games for the Sea Eagles between 2003 and 2016 and electrified crowds with his freakish try scoring ability, leading to him to become known as “The Prince of Brookvale”.
During his career, Stewart scored 163 tries – scoring in 73 per cent of the games he played in. He was the league’s top try scorer for the 2008 season.
He was also selected to play eight State of Origin games for NSW between 2007 and 2012.

Stewart’s admission shows real gutsWhy Stewart ended rugby league exile
After he retired, Stewart split his time between Sydney and Melbourne, where he opened a Japanese restaurant.
In 2019, he was brought back into the fold at the Sea Eagles in a coaching role.
 
Funny how this sort of story comes out on game day. Brandon Smith, Ferguson and many others have been caught snorting "white powder" but apparently it can't be proved it was cocaine.
 
I hate illegal drugs and anyone that has anything to do with them.

Please note the comment above is not at all targeted to the allegations in this article, however I will be heartbroken if they are proven.
 
Silly goose, not a good look for a coach. Wonder if he has breached a code of conduct and has to go.
